The 4 grade students get to explore how energy can be stored as height. Students built paper roller coasters. After they built their coaster they released marbles down the roller coaster track to understand height energy and energy transfer.

The elementary students received the chance to pie Mrs. Westrup in the face. All they had to do was raise $25 for the American Heart Association. 68 students completed this goal and Mrs. Westrup received 25 pies to the face!

red for luke

South Central Elementary School and Middle School wore red or T-Wolf colors on Oct.15 during spirit week in tribute to former student Luke Gean. Luke was a student at South Central. Luke would have been 8 years old today, so the students dedicated this day in his honor. Luke is forever in our hearts will always be a T-Wolf.
