The concert will begin with the 5th graders performing a song they started on their instruments and an arrangement of “Jingle Bells.” We look forward to having you and your families here to support their exciting progress on their first year! I’m truly proud of how far these students have progressed! The 5th grade band portion should not last longer than 15 minutes and then they are welcome to leave. I would like to encourage everyone to stay and listen to the other bands but I also know this is a busy time of year.

Dear Second - Fifth Grade Parents, We, the Central Heights Boys Basketball team, would like to give your son or daughter the opportunity to be selected as a basketball manager for a home varsity basketball game during the 2017-18 season. I am asking for parent permission in advance of the selection process to avoid announcing a student who is not able to participate. The selection criteria would be based on positive behavior, academics, character, and most of all, PRIDE. Our CHES classroom teachers will choose one boy and one girl from each class, grades 2nd-5th for the week. I will select our winners the Friday before the week of our home varsity games. I will select one boy and one girl for each game that following week. Parents will be contacted by phone and given details of the student’s duties for the evening. The student will be under my supervision during the boy’s varsity game. If your son or daughter are selected, they will get a team warm-up shirt and be recognized during halftime of the boy’s varsity basketball game. I believe your student will love the experience of being a part of our team, and hopefully become a basketball player themselves! Head High School Boys Basketball Coach Tyler Oestreicher Permission slips went home Nov. 21 and need to be returned by Tuesday, November 28.

No words can say how proud I am of these boys. They work their tails off almost every day of the week and when it's time to compete, they rise up to the challenge. The stakes could not have been any higher the past two weekends, but they kept finding ways to push themselves further than they (and their competition) probably ever though was possible. Of the seven runners on this State Runner-up squad, six of them ran their personal best on one of the hardest courses in Kansas. It should also be said that this group won Central Heights' first Boys Cross Country Regional Title since 1991 and equaled that team's Runner-up finish. 26 years has been a long wait, but for me, that wait makes this even more special. Merely saying 'thank you' or that we will miss seniors Kyle, Zack, Matthew and Coyd would be doing them a disservice; each of them brought something so important or unique to the program that they simply cannot be replaced. Caleb, Bryce, Tyler and Alex will need to step up as leaders while Jarod and the rest of the younger runners need to continue to grow. As the saying goes at Central Heights - Today is great day to be a Viking! Individual Statistics: 12th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:10 **individual medalist 20th - Kyle Cardin - 17:24 **individual medalist 26th - Alex Cannady - 17:48 33rd - Caleb Meyer - 17:54 56th - Jarod Crawford - 18:27 70th - Bryce Sommer - 18:52 95th - Zackrey Grabbe - 20:01 Photo (left to right) (back row): Mason McCurry, Jarod Crawford, Caleb Meyer, Alex Cannady, Bryce Sommer, Luke Cotter (front row): Head Coach Troy Prosser, Matthew Ashwill, Tyler Stevenson, Kyle Cardin, Zackrey Grabbe, Assistant Coach Tommi Compton Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country

Having the full compliment of runners all in the same race for the first time this season couldn't have come at a better time. We have overcome a lot of adversity this year, but when it counted the most, these boys made a huge commitment to bring a title back to Central Heights! I'm genuinely pleased with they way they came together this last week. From the 6th graders up to the seniors, this is something that I hope we can continue to build on. Zack Grabbe, Kyle Cardin and Bryce Sommer had highly important roles today and displayed exceptional leadership this season. Having Jarod Crawford running a huge PR as a freshman as well as Tyler Stevenson, Caleb Meyer and Alex Cannady all turning in some of their best performances of the season were incredible to watch. Six runners in the top 19 usually brings considerable rewards and, on this occasion, these kids have earned another week together on the course headed to State! Boys team: 1st Individual results: 4th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:41 6th - Alex Cannady - 18:27 7th - Kyle Cardin - 18:32 8th - Caleb Meyer - 18:34 14th - Jarod Crawford - 18:54 19th - Bryce Sommer - 19:20 50th - Zackery Grabbe - 20:24 Full results from Black Squirrel Timing can be found at the following link: http://blacksquirrelresults.com/2017/XC/CentralHeightsRegXC.pdf

The competition in the Flint Hills League is very high quality. On the Middle School side, we had a lot of success this season and it came through once again with five of the seven middle schoolers placing in the top 10 of their respective races. Having five runners in the top 10 of the JV race as well also helps give us a good amount of confidence for the future. While the Varsity boys finished 3rd in the league for the second year in a row, we were without our top runner this season and are still trying to find the right combination as we head into the biggest meet of the season. We will be hosting a 3A Regional meet next Saturday which will once again include the top three teams from our League. The competition, however, will be even higher with the addition of some other solid programs so we must bring our best in order to keep the season going.

Central Heights cross country at Pleasanton: First, I would like to give recognition to Lily Meyer and Taryn Compton for finishing 1st and 2nd in the 8th grade 2 Mile for the 3rd week in a row. They are both on a really good roll right now heading into League this coming Thursday as well as Emma Cubit who finished 3rd in the 7th grade 2 Mile as a 6th grader. They show a lot of heart and their hard work keeps paying off. On the high school boys side, the both the JV and varsity groups are doing a nice job improving each week as well. I am pleased that we were only a few points behind one of the best teams in 4A and the #1 ranked team in 2A. The competition won't get any easier next week at the Flint Hills League meet, but it will be a good test to see what we still need to work on. 8th Grade Girls 1st - Lily Meyer - 13:06 (medalist) 2nd - Taryn Compton - 13:49 (medalist) 7th - Lily Roll - 19:57 7th Grade Girls 3rd - Emma Cubit - 14:04 (medalist) 15th - Chloe LaDuke - 17:04 7th Grade Boys 7th - Max Cannady - 14:26 10th - Jessy Stalford - 14:40 JV Boys 1st - Alex Cannady - 18:36 (medalist) 4th - Orvel Broce - 20:41 (medalist) 7th - Luke Cotter - 20:50 11th - Matthew Ashwill - 21:14 14th - Mason McCurry - 21:20 34th - Landen Compton 24:19 40th - Ryder Roll - 26:41 Varsity Boys 5th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:38 (medalist) 8th - Kyle Cardin - 18:03 (medalist) 17th - Bryce Sommer - 19:09 18th - Caleb Meyer - 19:10 19th - Jarod Crawford - 19:16 39th - Zack Grabbe - 20:07 41st - David Craft - 20:15-- Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country
