Welcome to our Website!

Welcome to the new and returning members of the Central East District! Thanks to the tremendous efforts of our volunteer board and event chairs, we were able to successfully offer most of our student and teacher events virtually last year. As we look forward to 2021-2022 and being able to cautiously resume some in-person events, we will continue to honor and abide by all COVID social distancing requirements and health guidelines which are in effect at the time. Please continue to check the website for updates or subscribe to our email list to receive the most up-to-date information throughout the year.
