It was so wonderful to see everyone last week at the TACS performances. We wish you the warmest of holiday cheer and look forward to seeing you in 2023!


There will be no Manhattan Youth After school programs on Friday, December 23rd. Programs will resume in the new year on Tuesday January 3rd. 

School is closed December 26 – January 2. School will resume TUESDAY, January 3, 2023.

The Season of Giving

As the holiday season approaches, it is natural that families might want to give gifts to teachers and staff members. To show our gratitude, the PTA (on behalf of our entire community) sent a monetary gift to all members of the administration, teaching faculty and staff.   

We are immensely thankful for the kindness and energy the Center School team has consistently given to our children. We wish them a restful and joyful Winter Break. 

Should you have questions regarding the holiday gift, please feel free to contact centerschoolptatreasurer@gmail.com

Opportunities to Get Involved or Help

Space needed for Chamber Music Night

We are STILL looking for a location to host our annual Chamber Music Night in the spring. It is typically hosted in the home of someone from the Center School community. The space requirement should allow for 15-20 people + space for the ensemble to set-up. If you are interested in hosting, please contact Centerschoolspecialevents@gmail.com.
