Dear Centennial Family and Friends,
Welcome to Centennial Elementary! At Centennial, it is our goal to provide a positive, rewarding school experience for all students, staff and families. Our school staff works closely together to meet the individual academic needs of our students. We set high expectations to empower our students to learn, grow and excel.
While our main focus is on student academic achievement, we are also committed to building and maintaining a strong school community. Our students, staff and visitors are expected to follow these four school-wide expectations:
- We make safe choices.
- We are respectful.
- We do our best.
- We are responsible learners.
Homeroom classrooms begin each day with a “morning meeting” to support social-emotional learning and support for one another. We also provide social-emotional learning opportunities with curriculum focused on friendship, respect, inclusiveness and kindness.
Centennial Elementary students also participate in enriching field trip experiences throughout the year, including Wood Lake Nature Center and Orchestra Hall. We also welcome groups to perform for us, visit our classrooms and extend our learning in the areas of science and social studies. One of our biggest events is International Night, when the many cultures that make up Centennial Elementary School come together to celebrate with food, games, dances and prizes. It is a remarkable evening of fellowship, sharing and appreciation for the diverse cultures that make Centennial such a wonderful, welcoming school.
I feel confident that Centennial Elementary School has something to offer everyone! Please feel free to call or visit us at any time.
I am looking forward to another great school year!
Ms. Colleen Mahoney, Principal
