    Science Night


    Central Elementary School will hold our Duke Energy Science Night on Friday, May 6, 2022 starting at 8:00 am (Event will take place during the day while your child is at school)


    Science Night is an opportunity for you and your child to explore science together! Hands-on activities will introduce a range of science, technology, engineering, and math topics in a way that is fun and easy to understand.


    Science night will take place during your child's enhancement period while they are here at school. The activities will be set up in the gym for students to experience.


    Want to help with the Science Night?

    We need parents who will help run activities. You do not have to be a science expert to volunteer! We’ve made it easy for anyone to run the activities, even if you don’t remember anything from your science classes. If you can help or would like to attend, please contact K. Hardy Vaughan at 252.534.3381, ext. 2110.


    Thanks for your help, and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 6, 2022, 8:00 am.
