Hello Centerview Families,
The shadow was present! The famous Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow last Thursday in Pennsylvania, meaning six more weeks of winter. However, Staten Island Chuck did not, signaling an early spring. WHO KNOWS! Still gotta smile and be our BEST!
We are looking forward to upcoming conferences and communication with you! It’s a great opportunity to connect, identify progress and enhance our home and school connection. In these conversations, we’ll be sharing our use of Student Learner Profiles to enhance and design engaging work and experiences for your student. We’ll also be sharing each student’s Personal Learner Map and student co-designed learning goals in reading, math and our learning environment. We are fortunate to have this committed time and opportunity to connect on student progress and success. Thank you, up front, for the partnership!
As a reminder, there is no school February 16-20. We’ll use a couple of these days for professional learning and our opportunity to connect with families and then enjoy the long Presidents’ Day weekend.
Appreciate you all!

Co-creating learning around student interests, passions
Your elementary student may be discovering a love for baseball or music or art may one day turn into a gateway for them to co-create a course with a teacher for high school credit.
One high school student is learning physics through the lens of baseball. Another is learning math through art application. Another is learning biology and chemistry studying mascara. Another is applying an interest in graphic design to produce a magazine.
Co-created courses at Spring Lake Park High School work to pair a student’s passions outside of school and plans for career and college with credit needs in specific subject areas. Any student at Spring Lake Park High School can choose to co-create a course by working with a teacher to achieve identified academic and life competencies.
Learn more about the possibilities of co-creating learning.
Please help PTO provide meals for Centerview staff before evening conferences. PTO will provide the main entrees, but we need parent volunteers to provide sides, desserts, and drinks. View the SignUpGenius link for more details and to sign-up to donate. Thank you!
