Attention Twister Students & Parents!
It is that time of year when we start planning for next school year! Our Encore program has a variety of courses to offer our students. In 6th grade our students are exposed to what the Encore program has to offer. While in 7th and 8th grade, students have the opportunity to dig into the curriculum through participating in three trimester long courses each year.
Our current 6th and 7th grade students will have the opportunity to give their input in which courses they have an interest in and would like to learn more about. We will take your child's survey feedback into consideration while scheduling for next year.
Important to Understand: As a middle school, we believe that students should have some choice in their schedule. We also believe that it is important to expose them to many different offerings to promote a more college and career-ready student. We do not ensure that your child will receive their top three classes.
- Students will participate in 3 Encore classes throughout the year. Each class will last an entire trimester (approx. 12 weeks).
- Band is a year long class. If you sign up for band, you will not be exposed to the other offerings.
- Choir is a year long class. If you sign up for choir, you will not be exposed to the other offerings.
Please check Schoology and your email for more information about our Encore
program including course descriptions and videos.
District Choral Festival
Choirs from all District 146 schools met for the annual Choral Festival at Central Middle School. After each school's performance, the Choirs joined together under guest Director Christopher Moan of Andrew High School.
Fine Arts Community Service Project
Central’s National Junior Art Honor Society (NJAHS) and 8th Grade Chorale teamed up for a fine arts community service project with local senior citizens. The students visited residents of Porter Place and Bickford assisted living and memory care facilities in Tinley Park.
During these visits, the students donated artwork to the residents and the facilities, created artwork onsite for the residents, and performed many songs to the residents and staff. Artwork donations to Porter Place will be hung in the residents’ rooms, and artwork for Bickford will be hung in their activities center.
The NJAHS students created artwork onsite for the residents by asking them their names and what hobbies and activities they enjoy. They used this information to create artwork that the residents were able to keep.
The 8th Grade Chorale performed three to four sets of songs for three different groups of residents. Songs included “Keep Holding On,” “Stand By Me,” “Seasons of Love,” “True Colors,” and others. They also interacted with the residents and participated in creating artwork at both facilities.
Event planners at the facilities were appreciative and impressed with the District's students, and would like to make this as an annual event.
