Champaign Central H.S. Announcements 



If you need to contact either your counselor or a social worker, please complete this Student Services Request Form and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible. For those of you who are not new to the building, this is similar to filling out the slip you would fill out when you came down to the counseling office.

Attention seniors: It’s that time of year when you need to start thinking about Class Rings, Letter Jackets and Graduation.  I have included information from Herff Jones that might be helpful to you and your parents.

For 12 years Herff Jones has guaranteed that class rings and letterman jackets are delivered before Christmas but all orders must meet pre-Christmas factory Deadlines.  This year that cutoff date is OCTOBER 13th 2020.

You can also follow Herff Jones at:

Facebook – Illini Grad Sales

Herff Jones will be using these sights to send information to ensure they stay informed and up to date with specific order criteria and events necessary for them to receive what they order in a timely fashion.
