Dear Central families and staff, Our food collection is lower this year due to a late Thanksgiving. It’s not too late to bring non-perishable food like cereal, peanut butter, veggies, and fruit today to your school or District Office, or to God’s Family Church (7272 W. Shaw) by 9 am on Saturday. Thank you!

Principal's Message

Hello, everyone!

We are half way through with the academic school year. Our teachers have been working diligently with our students to increase reading and writing skills in all subject areas. Students are demonstrating growth in their academic efforts and in their social development as well. Tiger P.R.I.D.E. values continue to guide student behaviors. Our social emotional curriculum has supported our goals at Houghton-Kearney of helping students learn how to manage their emotions and how to grow in empathy for others. We continue to focus our attention on attendance as a primary indicator of student success; students are more likely to succeed in school with consistent attendance coming to school on-time and ready to learn. We are ever grateful for our parents’ continued commitment to Houghton-Kearney. I look forward to a great Spring semester—Go Tigers!
