Letter from Principal Rosenbach

Dear Centennial Families,

Thank you to all the families that joined us for fall conferences this week. The staff enjoyed connecting with all the families the past couple days and sharing the progress of your students. If you were unable to attend fall conferences, please reach out directly to the teachers if you want to connect about your student. You can also contact our school counselors, Mr. Childers, (last name A-K) or Mrs. Fortune (last name L-Z) if you ever have any academic, behavior, and/or social/ emotional concerns about your student.

We have Halloween coming up Monday (see costume parameters below), pictures retakes on November 2, second season sports starting on November 7, and then our Veterans Day Assembly on November 10, so quite a few happenings in the next couple of weeks.

This newsletter and messaging platform is the main way we are able to communicate with families of our CMS students and we encourage you all to look for messages from us. Thank you again for your wonderful partnership and allowing us to teach your students.


Josh Rosenbach

Elementary Human Growth and Development and Secondary Sexual Health family presentations scheduled

Human Growth and Development will be taught each year during 5th and 6th grade and Sexual Health will be taught in 7th, 8th and 9th grade.

Families are invited to attend a webinar to learn about the health standards, activities and resources that will be used to teach each of the topics, and the opt-out process. Please see details below.

Those who are unable to view the district presentations may review the lessons posted by clicking here. Due to copyright restrictions, we are required to post the links to the entire lessons as they were developed. Please know that some components of the lessons (example: homework-related activities for integrated learning and family homework) will not be taught.

The lessons and resources are also available for review from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. (or by appointment) at Teaching and Learning Services at the Resource and Service Center (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish). A video that will be used for the lessons is available for viewing at the district presentation and at Teaching and Learning. Due to copyright restrictions, we are unable to upload the video to our website.

October Counselor's Corner

Homework is one of the first places many students fall behind. Help your children get the most out of homework by teaching them to talk to their teachers and counselors. Encourage them and let them know that it is okay to ask questions if the assignment is unclear and to ask for help if needed.
