Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We welcome a revamped Register for Central teachers, students and families. As we move into the 2020 year, it is easy to try to remember what has changed in the past ten, twenty, thirty and even forty years. Reading my columns, you will be reminded of the hottest albums, movies, trends and more from decades ago. For the October issue, we will take a look at the best-selling pop songs from years ago.
