Principal's Message

Hello Everyone,


The time has come to close off the 2020-2021 school year and what a rollercoaster it has been for everyone. There were so many unprecedented events and obstacles to overcome and I am thrilled to say that we pushed through everything with strength and perseverance. I am incredibly proud of our students and families-that through every challenge were able to overcome with unity and heart. We anticipate that next school year will bring hope and we are looking forward to new adventures. Thank you CMS community and see you all soon!


Take care and kind regards,

Johanna Castillo

Principal CMS

New!!! Announcement about Football at Centennial High School

Hello,


It has been quite the year. I know many of you are excited that school is ending and

getting out to do those summer activities. Before you go I would like to encourage

you to join the football team at Centennial. We take everyone and no one will be cut.

No experience is necessary. We can teach you all that you need to know to enjoy the

greatest team sport ever created.


There are a couple of important things for you to know. First, we do start working

out, early in the summer. This is important for a variety of reasons. One is that

many of us have not been doing anything for quite some time with Covid, so we

need to start getting ourselves back into shape. Second, it prepares and protects our

bodies from injury. And third, during the summer we take time to install the offense

and defense as well as various offensive and defensive skills. This is important

because it is done at a slower pace than in season and really gives players an

advantage going into the season.


We lift four days a week. Monday thru Thursday, starting at 9am. We will do field

workouts after weights. We start on Monday, June 21 St . Again, no experience

necessary, the coaching staff will teach you proper lifting technique and safety. We

also do 7 on 7 contests with other high schools in the area. That schedule is on the

calendar as well. We do an older group and younger group team.


I am including this link to our team summer calendar.


This calendar has all our summer information. It has when camp and

practice/doubles start as well as all other information that you will need. I do have

printed copies, if you come to weight training you can pick one up if that is easier.

You will need a physical as an incoming freshman. The information for that is on the

schools athletic page, and we can help you with that during the summer.


My email if you wish to reach out to me is charles_self@csd28j.org


Please send any question you have my way.


We expect a great season this next year. Come join the F.A.M.I.LY. You won’t find a

better place to be.


Hope to see you soar with Eagles!

Head Football Coach

Important!!! 8th Grade Promotion 2021

Hello 8th grade CMS families!


The end of the year is quickly approaching, and our 8th grade students are getting excited about the start of a new chapter in their lives. Our CMS class of 2021 has had a middle school experience unlike any other. They have persevered through historic obstacles with flexibility and grit. We want to celebrate the resilience and adaptability they have shown these past two years. Please join the Centennial staff for a Covid-safe, drive thru Promotion Ceremony on Wednesday, June 16th. Your student will be presented with a Certificate of Recognition and there will be an opportunity for photos.


Each 8th grade team will have its own designated time for the ceremony.

  • Eagles: 10:30-11:30

  • Foxes: 11:45-12:45

  • Herons: 1:00-2:00

  • CVA: 1:00-2:00


In order to ensure a smooth traffic flow, please enter the CMS parking lot through the entrance on 182nd Ave. Cars will only be allowed to move in one direction through the lot.


We know how proud you are of your student(s). If you would like to decorate your car with window paint and signs to show off your pride, we would love to see your spirit.


Thank you for helping us celebrate our 8th graders.
