Name the Auditorium Renovation Project!

The Central Cambria Education Foundation and the Central Cambria School District will be collaborating on a renovation project of the high school / middle school auditorium. We will have more details about the project in the near future, but right now we are looking for a catchy name for the project. If you would like to suggest a name, please comment on the post on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ccef4kids. If your suggestion is chosen, we will put your name on the back of one of the new seats. Thanks!!

AP Spanish Goes to Carnegie Science Center

​The Central Cambria AP Spanish class had a “dia de ciencias” (Science day) at Carnegie Science Center in February. The group of 18 seniors watched a presentation in Spanish about telescopes and did a scavenger hunt (instructions in Spanish) throughout the Science Center.

After the museum, the group headed to Mallorca, a Spanish restaurant in the South Side, where students had an opportunity to try paella (the national dish of Spain; see attached picture), garlic chicken and sangria.

According to the students, the best part of the day was the food. It was a great day spent using Spanish in a real-world environment. Thanks again to the Central Cambria Education Foundation for this experience! (Mrs. Templeton & AP Spanish students).

Read Across America Author Visit

Cambria and Jackson Elementary hosted a guest author, Mr. Daryl Cobb, on Monday, February 27th to kick-off Read Across America week. Mr. Cobb had an interactive program to teach students topics about writing, such as discovering good ideas, the importance of words, and creating conflict. The students were entertained by his high energy, storytelling and music. It was a great way to get students motivated about reading and writing during this special week! The Central Cambria Education Foundation was proud to provide funding for Mr. Cobb’s visit to our school.

Boys’ Basketball Advances to Elite Eight!

We have some of our own March madness brewing in Ebensburg. The Central Cambria boys’ basketball team advanced to the Elite Eight in the PIAA Class AAA tournament for the first time in school history with a 67-63 win over Riverside. Evan Bopp scored 27 in the win, and went over 1,000 points for his career. The boys are back in action Saturday at 1 p.m. against Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic, the WPIAL champs. The game is at Norwin High School. We hope to see many of our Pittsburgh area alumni out to support the Red Devils as they look to survive and advance!
