Letter from Principal Rosenbach

Dear Centennial Families,

We are off to a great start for second semester even though I cannot believe we are halfway through the year. Students have settled into their new classes, and we are excited about the second half of the year. We look forward to an even better semester as our students continue to learn, grow, and mature.

As we pass the halfway point that also means we will begin planning for next year's schedule. Registration for next year classes will be happening in March. Expect to see more detailed information being sent home soon, so be on the lookout for important dates and times. The registration process is important to get good information from students so that we can plan for and build the best schedule possible to meet their needs as they begin at Centennial.

As I reflect on the year so far, I must say the year is going extremely well. We have been able to bring back some of our traditional events like assemblies and dances. This has given the students a renewed sense of normalcy. They seem happier and more excited to be at school, which is great to see. There is nothing better than to watch a student come to school and interact with their peers, learn something new in class, or join a club/ sport that they enjoy. I am grateful every day I get to serve the Centennial students and their families and wish you all the best.


Josh Rosenbach

February Counselor's Corner: Registration Is Coming up

Did You Know? Students who participate in extracurricular activities are more likely to have a higher GPA, have better attendance, and expect to earn a bachelor’s degree. Don't forget to check your "helpful high school courses" on your High School & Beyond Plan in Hello ID before you register for 9th grade next month!

February Counselor Newsletter

Power up before school!

Just a friendly reminder that each student needs to be plugging their laptop in at night to make sure it is fully charged and ready each day when they arrive at school. The reason for this is that there would not be enough outlets for every student to charge when they arrive, and they need to be ready to use these devices upon arrival. Thank you for your help in reminding them and encouraging them toward this end.

Students to receive Panorama survey in spring

We will again be asking our 3rd through 12th grade students to participate in the Panorama survey for social-emotional learning. This survey was given to students last school year and in the fall 2022.

Panorama helps schools and districts transform their approach to education, so that every student thrives in school, every student benefits from an excellent education, and every student graduates prepared with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets they need to thrive in the modern, ever-changing world. Through our work to improve education, we help create a world where every child has equitable access to opportunities in school and in society more broadly. Panorama is a tool used by the district in conjunction with multiple other resources, such as attendance, behavior, grades, etc.

For elementary, the Panorama questions center on their current knowledge, how they feel about the school environment, and whether they have access to staff and resources to feel safe and successful. For secondary, the questions center on the same areas and further explore whether students feel they have the skills, opportunity, or ability for personal and academic growth along with social awareness and positive relationships. The survey window will be open during February. Survey results will be available in March after the survey window closes. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's principal.

Our goal as a district and community is to ensure that each student feels safe, welcomed, and supported in our schools and while attending school activities. The information provided through this survey is one tool we can use to hear student voice and perspective. Other considerations will continue to include conversations with students, families, and staff along with monitoring of academic progress and social-emotional awareness. It is ok to not feel ok, but please know that there is help and support so that it does not have to remain that way.
