Dear Celina Community Members,
The spring season is just around the corner now that we have entered March. We hope that you all enjoy the warmer weather and get to enjoy some time back outdoors. Our spring sports of Boys Tennis, Boys and Girls Track and Field, Baseball, and Softball provide you additional opportunities to go out and enjoy the outdoors. Thank you for supporting our spring athletes and their coaches.
We offer our congratulations for the continued success of our winter athletic teams. Our Boys Bowling team was just eliminated from the tournament as they finished in fourth place at Districts. The Girls Bowling team is in District competition today. Our junior high bowlers finished in 1st and 2nd place in the WBL season ending tourney held last week.
We have three wrestlers who qualified for Regionals this year. We wish them well as they wrestle today and tomorrow. These individuals include Aaren King, Gavin Brown, and Tyler Carlin. Our Cheerleading squad is headed to State Competition this weekend. We wish them well as they have worked hard to synchronize their stunning performance. Congratulations to freshman Jackson Newcomb who placed 10th and 15th in the State swimming competition last weekend!
The Celina High School Spring Theater Musical production of Cinderella will be performed April 21 through 23. Please save these dates on your calendar so that you can come and support our performers!
Our FBLA(Future Business Leaders of America) earned 20 awards at the State competition. Tirth Patel earned a 1st place finish in Computer Applications. Tirth qualified for National Competition along with Lilli Heller, Zoe Cox and Adrielle Martin.
Celina City Schools is hosting the OMEA competition this weekend. Thanks to all of the volunteers who are stepping up to help Choir Director Joel Trisel and Band Director Chuck Sellars in making this event a great one for the 1,700 student participants.
At our Special Board meeting today, we are asking the Board to approve the GMP(Guaranteed Maximum Price) of the PK - 6 building. With this approval the foundation of the building can be poured and the construction of the facility will progress. This building is expected to be open for partial occupancy in the Fall of 2024. We will be working with Garmann Miller Architects to begin the design phase for the new 7 - 12 building, which is slated to open in the fall of 2026.
Tuesday, May 2, 2023 is the Spring Primary Election. We encourage all registered voters to cast their vote in this election. Celina City Schools has the five-year RENEWAL of the 1% Earned Income Tax on the ballot.
Have an awesome spring!
Dr. Ken Schmiesing
