It is Homecoming Week here at Central. This begins with Coronation, as the Queen and Marshall will reign over the week's festivities. Some of you remember that both of our daughters are Queens. This has never before happened at CHS...siblings being crowned the Queen. One of our school counselors (Barry) refers to me as the Queen Mother. Now...if I had anything to do with this, I could write a book and retire from teaching.
I cannot remember a time when I have been more proud...because the Queen and Marshall are selected by their peers.

Life is short but there is always time for courtesy. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

You two will always be my queens!
