South Central Elementary School, through its penny war fundraiser, raised $20,022.80 for Riley Hospital for Children!

The penny war fundraiser was sponsored by Junior Council members and was held from March 4th to the 22nd. South Central Elementary (and the Corporation) will now be designated as a "Red Wagon School/Corporation" for their fundraising efforts! Additionally, a Red Riley Wagon with a customized South Central license plate will be used at Riley Hospital as transportation for many patients.

As a reward, a school assembly was held and staff received pies in the face. Fifth grade, the winning grade level with the most donations, earned a trip to the movie theater and all grade levels earned a pizza party. Thank you to Ms. Bruner, Mrs. Perez, and our entire Junior Council!

Dear Satellite Families, 

As you are likely aware, we will experience the phenomenon of a total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th. While the total solar eclipse is an exciting event for some, it does also bring some safety concerns to consider. After discussing this event with the Board of Trustees, LaPorte County Emergency Management, and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, we do feel that we need to make a slight change to our schedule on April 8th. We will dismiss students early; elementary car riders beginning at 12:20pm and Jr.-Sr. High School at 12:30pm.

The timing of this rare event is what drives this decision. It occurs near regular dismissal time. LaPorte County is in the path of 96% totality of the solar eclipse, which will occur at 2:08pm. The partial eclipse begins approximately 12:52pm and will last until 3:23pm, according to LCEM and IDHS. 

I understand that this decision will be met with mixed reactions. We are making this change in the best interest of safety though, as viewing the eclipse without proper eyewear can cause permanent damage to your eyesight. South Central purchased approved safety glasses for students a few weeks back and we hope those will arrive in time to provide those, should parents/guardians want to view this event with their child. 

We sincerely appreciate your understanding regarding this change, and always appreciate your support of South Central Schools! 

Yours in education,

Ben Anderson, Superintendent

On February 15, 2024, South Central Elementary School was recognized at the Indiana Statehouse for achieving over a 95% proficiency rate on the 2022-2023 IREAD-3. Ben Anderson (superintendent), Nick Kimmel (principal), and Chris Walter (3rd grade teacher) also got to meet Dr. Jenner (Indiana Secretary of Education), Jim Pressel (Indiana State Representative), and Suzanne Crouch (Indiana Lieutenant Governor).

Thanks again to all our teachers and staff, especially our 3rd grade teaching/support teams, for their daily efforts to achieve this goal!
