First PTO sponsored dance huge success
The winter dance for Central High School Coosa County students was organized under the leadership of PTO president Maressa Ware. Students turned out to enjoy holiday decorations, hang out with their friends, dance, and savor snacks. Thank you to all the PTO officers for making this event so much fun for the students, vice president Micah Bennett, secretary Shameka Ross and treasurer Kristal Webber. Also thank you to the staff who stayed late on a Friday night to chaperone, Mr. and Mrs. Lee, Mrs. Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Stover, and Mrs. Young.

Seniors play Break-out of Central High School Escape Room game to prepare for state mandated Civics Graduation Exam
Seniors returned to school Monday evening for the draft of 10 color coded teams, including guest players Mr. Bailey and Mr. Lee and former Central graduates Olivia Harrell, Nakia Robbins and Shelby Thrash. Olivia, who graduated from Central in 2017, stated as her team raced down the hall to the next room, “It’s all coming back!” Each team had to solve multiple clues on civics related content in 10 different color rooms in order to receive the combo to that color lock on the front door. Thank you to the staff who volunteered to run the rooms and assist with the game until almost 9 p.m.; it would not be possible without their help: Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Belyeu, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Lee, Mrs. McDonald, Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Mynard, Mr. Stover, Mrs. Thornton, Mrs. Wood, and Mrs. Young.
Pictured is the first team to solve all the clues in all 10 rooms and unlock all 10 locks, Brynli Mitchell, Tremaine Kelley, Brittany Allen, and Shelby Thrash.
Pictured is our hearing impaired student, Alissa McCook, who volunteered to sign the word “treaty” as one of the 100 clues teams had to solve. After the team interpreted her sign they had to define a treaty.
Pictured is Daja Pearson who volunteered to be the reindeer as her team solved a riddle about the number of continents reindeer would visit by blowing up the correct number of balloons.
Pictured is Jaylen Lee whose team solved the riddle to wrap him as a mummy so they could unlock the clue hidden on the inside of the toilet paper roll to identify the totalitarian leaders of Germany and Italy during WWII.
Pictured is Mallory Parrish getting ready to try and safely cross the WWII minefield without it squeaking so she can identify the three AXIS powers on the map.
Pictured are the white shirt team and staff volunteer Mrs. Wood; their expressions show that the game was both challenging and fun.
Pictured is Mr. Bailey who volunteered to be blindfolded as his team directed him to point to Election Day, which they had to know was the first Tuesday in November.
