CATA Teachers Getting Ready for Back to School!
Central Academy teachers were busy preparing to welcome students to CATA. Teachers spent time getting to know our new staff members, greeting old colleagues, learning about best practices in their content area, and reviewing procedures and safety protocols. Each department was able to meet to work on collaborative planning during the week and had time to set their rooms up to greet students on Monday, August 25th. Technology Professional Development was offered for both new and veteran teachers. Professional development plans to address reading and writing across content areas was shared, as well as plans for continuing education for differentiated instruction. All CATA staff shared a luncheon together mid-week and topped the week off with a great Ice Cream Social on Friday sponsored by the PTSO.
Welcome back CATA Staff and Students. It is going to be a great year!!Full Story
New CATA Students Welcomed Aboard by STUCO
Freshman were welcomed aboard CATA by a sea of Student Council "captains" and staff. Current student council officers and members met a few times this summer to plan the ninth grade orientation. Freshman were provided with their schedules that served as a chart that they would explore during their time at the school. New students were greeted by Principal Fisenne, administrators, and guidance counselors as well. The student council provided tours of the building so that students could find their way from class to class, led the freshman in chants, greeted the freshman with "fringies" to get to know each other, provided advice on being successful at CATA, and engaged in fun activities.Full Story
