If you are going to be volunteering at Central-Denison (field trips, PTO events, classroom help, etc.) the Administration at the District Office requires a background check to be processed. Forms are available on-line or you can stop by the Central-Denison Office to request a form. Please note: the District Office needs two weeks to process the form.

Background checks are good for three years, so if you are unsure of whether you are still approved, you can call Central-Denison at 262-348-4000.

NEW & EXCITING for this school year, we will be using the Box Tops for Education App

Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school's Box Tops earnings online.

*We still want kiddos to turn in cut out box tops that they find as it will take a while to completely phase those out.
* We want families to download the app, super easy. Then they just simply scan their receipt after they go to WalMart, Target, etc. It's truly so easy and such an easy moneymaker for our school!
