Howdy Parents!

I have had the BEST time working with your kiddos. First and second grade have been looking at nursery rhymes with a different lense and third, fourth, and fifth graders have been debating real life court cases. After lessons, they've used free time to collaborate, build, create...and smile! We've all have enjoyed each other's company, and that is so important right now. Enjoy some snapshots of some of the fun below.

Thank You,


On T.R.A.C.K....Even From a Distance

Kiddos learning from a distance are rockin' it! I recognize distance learning is no easy feat, but these kiddos have been working really hard and deserve to be recognized. The signs get passed on each week to a new kiddo.

I'm proud of ALL of the kiddos learning virtually, and I look forward to meeting with them each week. Thanks grown-ups of virtual learners! I know it isn't easy, so thank you for all you do too!

Humble Animal Hospital Donation Drive

I am so very proud of the kindness and thoughtfulness of the kiddos. THEY decided they wanted to find a shelter to help. THEY thought of ways to spread the word at Centennial. I am inspired by their creativity and willingness to help each other reach a common goal. Check out the flyer created by 5th grader, Mariana Scott. Thank you for supporting their cause.

Did you know all GT students have access to Renzulli Learning?

Renzulli Learning brings enrichment and differentiation to your kiddo's fingertips! Check out this video for more information:

Introduction to Renzulli Learning
The kiddos have all taken the Profiler, and I will be sending you copies of each one to see their strengths, interests and learning styles. Many of them were surprised by the accuracy of the results. We will also be using this platform for our annual GT Expo. More details to come on this soon.
