Central Catholic column CCHS to hold tuition raffle

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 by MICHAEL RODGERS Special to The Press in Local News

The Central Catholic Administration will be holding a free tuition raffle for the class of 2017.

All eighth grade students who submit their complete application and registration fee by Feb. 2, 2013 will be automatically entered into the drawing. For more information regarding the application process or tuition raffle, contact the admissions department at 610-437-4601 or visit the school's website at acchs.info.

The CCHS National Honor Society will be providing tutoring to all Central students 7:40 to 8:15 a.m. every morning before school. Students will be given individual attention on the subject of their choice from a senior who has excelled in that subject.

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the DeSales tutoring sessions 3 to 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Students must sign up for this program with their subject teachers and are expected to attend every session upon enrollment. Similar to the NHS tutoring program, CCHS students will be given individual attention from a current DeSales student. For questions or concerns regarding either program, contact the CCHS studies office.

The fourth annual I Run For Jack 5K Run/Walk will take place once again in the Lehigh Parkway Nov. 24. A former Central Catholic teacher and coach, Jack Pressman was a beloved member of the CCHS community. All proceeds from this memorial event will benefit the Jack Pressman Memorial Scholarship Fund which seeks to provide financial aid to prospective Central Catholic students who have thrived in the field of academics. For more information about the fund or to register for the race, visit the CCHS website or www.jackpressman.org.

Central Catholic will be hosting its Viking Fest 2013 6 to 10 p.m. April 13 in Rockne Hall Gym. Held every year, Viking Fest is Central Catholic's premier social and fundraising event. For those interested in volunteering or sponsoring the event, contact Jackie Jones at jjones@achs.info or call 610-437-4601, ext. 108.
