Centennial Class of 2020 Graduation Parade Hello Centennial School Families and Supporters!!! Since the traditional graduation ceremony has been postponed for our Centennial Graduates, we have planned a special parade for them in the Centennial School parking lot on May 23, 2020 at 11:00 am. You are invited to help us make it special for them by decorating your cars and driving through the school parking lot. The Class of 2020 will practice social distancing by standing 6 feet apart in front of the school wearing their cap and gowns. You can show your support by honking, waving, and taking pictures while you drive by them. However, please do not exit your vehicles, so we all maintain social distancing for safety. Your support for this event is greatly appreciated! For more information contact Crystal Quintana at 719-298-1398.
Reminder for All Student Athletes: • Please get your uniforms and warm-ups in if you haven’t already. Drop-off time today is 11:00-1:00. • Ms. Serna needs your pictures for the slide show. • Middle School sports can submit their pictures Ms. Serna as well.
Attention Athletes: All uniforms must be returned on either Wed., May 13 from 1-3:30 or Thurs., May 14 from 11-1. Please read the attached announcements re: returning uniforms and an alternative athletic banquet from Ms. Serna to celebrate your athletic accomplishments this year.
Good evening Centennial Families: We realize this has been a challenging time for everyone between adjusting to social distancing protections, worrying about the health and safety of loved ones, and adjusting to remote learning for our students. Some families and students have thrived while remote learning, while others have struggled or disengaged. We want to support all students in being successful. Since some students learn better while on campus, in-person with their teachers and have struggled to complete assignments or remain caught-up during these past few weeks, we will provide support for these students specifically at the beginning of next year through a jumpstart program. Students who are unsuccessful during the fourth quarter will come to school 6 days before other students at the beginning of next year. This will be a time for one-on-one support; a chance to build the skills they are missing during this remote learning time; and to be better prepared for the rigorous coursework of the next grade level. Check with your children's teachers over the next week to see if your child is missing assignments or is not engaging in the work of the fourth quarter, which may require them to be in the jumpstart program. We have only two weeks left, so let's finish strong and get the most out of the learning experiences that remain. Go Rams!

Good evening high school parents and students, High school students can come to the school to get items out of their locker on Wednesday, May 13 from 1:00 to 3:30. Parents will pull up to the school and wait in line like they would to pick-up their child after school. Parents and students will remain in their vehicle until it is their student's turn to enter the building. If you are a high school student that drives, you will park in the parking lot and wait outside the building while maintaining 6 foot social distancing at all times. Students must bring their own bag to take items home, wear a mask, and remain 6 feet apart at all times. There will only be 10 students allowed in the building and hallway at a time and will need to have their temperature checked when entering the building. We will provide each student with gloves while in the building. Once one student leaves, another student can enter the school. Once the student enters, the parent will drive around the school and wait in the pick-up zone on the HS side of the school by the door to the HS hallway until your child exits the building. If you are unable to come to school on Wednesday, May 13, your items will be cleared from the locker by staff and will be sent home as part of the final material drop-off on Wednesday, May 20. If you would like to have your child pack-up their own locker, please bring your child to the school at the following times: 1:00-- Last Names: A-D 1:30-- Last Names: E-L 2:00-- Last Names: M-O 2:30-- Last Names: P-R 3:00-- Last Names: S-Z There are just a few weeks left to the year and it is important your child continues completing their assignments, attending meetings or office hours with their teacher, and learning. May 20 will be the last time to submit completed work necessary for course credit. Please, reach out to your teachers during their daily office hours if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support. Go Rams!
