Smooth Sailing for Central Freshmen
The freshmen headed down the Delaware River this week for their maiden voyage as a grade. In six-person rafts and with their senior big sisters and grade deans in tow, the newly minted Central students paddled their way through the day, which ended at Mrs. CB Neugroschl’s home for dinner.
“It was a great way for our grade to bond,” said Freshman Shira Rosoff. “If you were in a raft with people you knew, you got to know them better, and if you were with people you didn’t know, it was a great way to hang out for the first time.”
It wasn’t all smooth sailing, though. Tallyah Akhavan and Sophia Shaool said, “We definitely got stuck a few times on boulders or on the sides of the river and had to get ourselves out! It was really fun, though, and we pulled through together.”
Central Club Fair
The beginning of each school year at Central brings with it a highly anticipated and exciting event: the Central Club Fair! This year’s fair showcased a wide variety of afterschool activities, including academic clubs like Mock Trial and Model Congress, publications like newspaper and literary journal, performing-arts clubs like band and dance, and other weekly activities including peer study hall, environmental club, and photography club.
The cafe buzzed with excitement as student leaders displayed informative posters and manned their booths, introducing themselves to interested peers and offering sample materials and sign-up sheets. The room was filled with a lively energy as students shared the topics and causes they are so passionate about with one another. The extracurricular year at Central is off to a vibrant start!
