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!!

Don’t forget to tune into KOFO tonight at 7 pm and 10 pm and tomorrow at 6 am to listen to Christmas music sponsored by the high school sports teams! Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!!
We will be sponsoring KOFO Christmas music on Christmas Eve at 7:00 and 10:00 pm and Christmas morning at 6:00 am. Please tune in to listen! Here is our message to our patrons: On behalf of all their athletes the Central Heights High School Coaching staff, Bob Risch, Jenny Schweiger, Troy Prosser, Doug North, Tyler Oestricher, Lea Stegner, and Jason Brown would like to wish all their parents, fans and patrons a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Although in person support is limited, the Viking athletes know you are with them at every event, and they look forward to a time when everyone can gather together again. Pandemic or not, It is a Great Day to be a Central Heights Viking!
Our middle school and high school did a canned food drive this week. The teacher with the most food got a pie in the face and the teacher with the second most food got to throw the pie. Mr. Brown got 1st and Mrs. Smith got 2nd in the middle school. Mrs. Oram got 1st and Mr. Matile got 2nd in the high school.
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.
Unfortunately the Christmas Caroling event for tonight will have to be cancelled. 😟Please pass this on to others so they know we will NOT be going from town to town. Have a Merry Christmas!!!!
Don’t forget to come and enjoy the Caroling by the professional singing group of the CH staff as we go from town to town Caroling tomorrow evening the 16th. Rantoul 5:00, Lane 5:45, Richmond 6:30, Princeton 7:15. Check the earlier post about more details!!

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.
