Before you watch the Chiefs vs Buccaneers Game today, make sure you read this poem by our own Mrs. Tara King: Super Bowl LV It’s that time of the year again, The Super Bowl is near, My kids think it’s the best time of the year. Half time is pretty awesome. Commercials are funny and great, But the main event is what’s at stake. We’re going to run a little faster, And won’t drop that ball. Chiefs football is my favorite, My favorite most of all. We’re going to score touchdown after touchdown, And won’t give up. The Lombardi trophy is ours, We’ll thank our lucky stars, Because Chiefs fans will scream and shout Until the very end! GO CHIEFS!!

Every Christmas season, the students who work in Mrs. Desormeaux’s special education classroom decorate unique ornaments for all of the staff at Central Heights. The students usually create an order form to take around to all of the staff members to place an order for a specific ornament to work on social skills. This year was a little different due to COVID-19 so they made a Google Form to send out to all of the staff members to order ornaments. The students spent Monday and Tuesday making ornaments from the order forms and then got to deliver them Wednesday and Thursday to all of the staff. The students also made ornaments for the staff members that did not send in order forms because they wanted to make sure that everyone got one for Christmas. These students have some of the biggest hearts around.

The five years leading the Vikings have been no different as he has helped us overcome many obstacles during his tenure. Mr. Spencer mentioned the most memorable moment at Central Heights was the water test over Christmas Break of 2017. Mr. Spencer will be forever remembered for his infectious laughter and “good mornin’” during any part of the day. Thank you, Mr. Spencer, for all that you do, for showing us how to enjoy each day and always pushing us to do what is best for kids! Enjoy your retirement!

Congratulations to Mrs. Jean Nilges on her retirement from Central Heights. Mrs. Nilges has worked with a vast number of children over many years and we extend a deep and gracious “Thank You” to her! Mrs. Nilges holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Education from Mid-America Nazarene. She has 42 additional credit hours, mostly in the field of reading. Mrs. Nilges taught at the Heidi and Peter Preschool for seven years, Head Start in Lawrence for one year, was the Director at the Daycare Center for two years, a paraprofessional in Ottawa for two years and a substitute teacher in Ottawa for 10 years. She has spent the last 15 years at Central Heights Elementary. At CHES she taught third graders for four years, prekindergarten children for two years, kindergarten students for 1 year, and then eight years as the Reading Recovery and Title I Reading teacher. Getting to know her students and their families, watching the students grow academically, and seeing them grow up is something she remembers fondly. She has stayed in contact with many of her students over the years. Mrs. Nilges remembers learning from and about her co-workers. She loves the family atmosphere. “It is great how we pull together for each other when we need to. I will never forget building a milk jug igloo in the library with Mrs. Smith.” She has been married to Lynn Nilges for eight years. Together they have 16 grandchildren. Their large family has had some great celebrations. They are looking forward to many more to come. Mrs. Nilges will be spending more time with her father who is in a nursing home facility. The Nilges’ hope to do some traveling and spend time on special projects around the house including planting lots of beautiful flowers. Mrs. Nilges states she will miss her very dear friends at CHES. If things ever get back to normal, she would like to do some substitute teaching. The CHES staff would like that too, Mrs. Nilges!

The Central Heights School District would like to wish Mr. Michael Carey a happy retirement! Mr. Carey has been wandering the hallways with his side secured belt and a pencil behind his ear for 26 years. But has served in education for a total of 42 years. Teaching business, theology and the best computer science teacher this side of the Mississippi, Mr. Carey has also had an impact by coaching football, women’s basketball, men’s and women’s track as well as many other duties such as CTE coordinator. Mr. Carey has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Central Heights as both a student and a teacher, but those of us within the district have some very distinct memories that stick out with his dry sarcastic humor. Most notably, during inservice confessing his long forgotten (high school) crush on another staff member. Mr. Carey has shown passion for education and the Viking Community and we will truly miss the laughter he provides each day. We wish him the best of luck as he has more time with family including his Wife Deb, Son Chris, Daughters, Ashley and Malissa as well as five grandchildren. Mr. Carey plans to stay active within the Central Heights School system and community.

Hello community partners, I'm writing to ask your help in spreading the word - Elizabeth Layton Center is open for business and here to help! We are able to offer safe options for behavioral health treatment during this time of COVID crisis. I think many people in our community are struggling right now with anxiety, depression, substance cravings and other behavioral health issues. Our world is filled with unprecedented stressors and losses. However, access to ELC services has never been lower than the past month. My concern is that people may be unaware that ELC is open for business, and that we are able to offer treatment options that are both safe and effective. ELC now offers behavioral health services through Telemedicine (e.g. telephone and televideo methods.) This is very convenient for families, and allows for safe and effective treatment of mental health and substance use needs. New patient admissions, Crisis services, Therapy, Medication management, Peer Support, Case Management and Psychosocial services can all be access via Telemedicine! We also continue to offer face-to-face services (using COVID precautions) for those who are unable to participate by telephone or televideo. For safety reasons, our doors are now locked, but the public can still access our services if needed. They can phone first, or if they arrive on site our compassionate staff will walk them through the process. As always, community residents without insurance are eligible for sliding scale fee based services. Crisis services remain available 24/7.
