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.
