Recycling has become a tradition here at Central Academy. Over the past seven years, CATA students and faculty have recycled paper, plastics, aluminum cans and batteries in the classrooms. This year CATA has extended our recycling efforts inside the cafeteria. There are brand new recycling and trash receptacles in several locations around the cafeteria. Students and faculty are encouraging each other to use these new bins correctly. Ms. Kopchick’s Earth/Environmental students helped educate the students during lunches. They talked to their fellow classmates during each lunch period and explained the new system. The new receptacles are clearly marked. Only aluminum cans and plastic bottles are to go into the recycle bins. All food scraps, trays, napkins and other trash must go into the trash bins. If trash ends up in the recyclables, we will have to throw out the entire bag. Ms. Kopchick’s students, along with the Environmental Club, will continue to encourage the proper technique.Full Story
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
