Welcome to Centennial Elementary

Dear Families,

Welcome to Centennial Elementary! We are so excited to have you with us this year! Here are a few updates and resources to help you prepare for the upcoming school year. 

Open House
We are hosting our annual Open House on Thursday, Sept. 2, from 1-3 p.m. This is a great opportunity to meet our staff, see the construction updates to our building, fill out any missing paperwork and more. 

Health & Safety
We continue to make health and safety a priority. In August, the District will be sharing clear COVID-19 guidelines and procedures for the year. For returning families, you will see many of the same safeguards in place as last year, including social distancing and deeper cleaning of classrooms and other school spaces. We will also work with students to reinforce best practices like hand washing. At Centennial Elementary School, we provide a safe, enjoyable learning environment for students and staff.

Academics & Student Support
We provide core classes for all students (reading, math, writing, science and social studies) as well as physical education, music, art and media. We also offer academic support in reading and math, and we have a Talent Development (Gifted and Talented) program in place for students who need an additional challenge. 

We will continue to support the social and emotional needs of students through Morning Meetings and lessons in classrooms. We have a full-time social worker, a student engagement specialist and two outreach workers on our team to support students and families (find their contact information here). On-site counseling services are also available for students.

School & District Resources
Ready to learn more? Explore our school website to learn more about back to school, our curriculum, handbook and our school calendar. On the District website, you can find information on COVID-19, our new Equity Policy, the Strategic Plan, technology resources, school lunch and transportation information.

What’s Next?
In mid-August, look for a letter in the mail or an email with information about the start of school, your child’s room and teacher assignment, school hours, school calendar, meal information, bus information and more. If your contact information has changed since last year, please be sure to update it in ParentVUE or contact our office—we don’t want you to miss any important information! 

I want to again welcome you to Centennial Elementary! We are so happy to have you in our school community. We value all of our students and families, and we strive to provide the very best learning opportunities each and every day. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at any time. 

See you in September!

Ms. Colleen Mahoney, Principal
