Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
I am honored to be the principal of Centennial High School and am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your students. As a staff, we will accomplish this by maintaining rigorous academic expectations for all students and providing a supportive environment for them to meet these goals. Starting with an already successful school culture, increasing academic expectations through implementation of Next Generation Science and Common Core State Standards, and further engaging the parents and business community, it is our goal for every CHS graduate to be college- and/or career-ready after graduation.
High school is a time for growth and endless opportunities. It is an exciting time, but it can also be challenging with the increase in workloads and the social adjustment of being on a larger campus with additional activities. Our students will be expected to arrive to each classroom ready to learn, participate in co-curricular activities, and display responsible citizenship both at school and when representing Centennial in the community.
Students, I encourage you to:
Contribute to our school community in a collaborative, respectful manner.
Pose questions, examine possibilities, and challenge yourself to find solutions.
Surround yourself with positive people.
Communicate with others in a respectful and meaningful way.
Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness.
Be HAWKS – Honest, Ambitious, Well-Rounded, Kind, and Spirited.
Parents, I encourage you to:
Ask your student(s) specific questions about their day at school.
Sign up for and use the ParentVue Portal often. The Parent Portal allows you to track your child’s classroom grades and attendance.
Communicate with your child’s teachers to establish if questions arise.
Encourage your student(s) to get involved with one or more of the many clubs, activities and/or athletic teams found at CHS.
Let’s make this year one that is filled with passion, purpose, and positive memories!
