Prom Assistance Anyone...

Seniors check this out!!
Happy Monday! Well, they say it takes a village, so I'm hoping for a Win-Win. My friend, Madeleine Kraus, is in charge of the Fairy Goodmothers Project. You may or may not be aware of their mission but they get prom dresses and other items to girl's so that everyone can celebrate and enjoy an evening out! We have over 2000 new prom dresses for all students in need!

Please let Madeleine know if you are interested in this opportunity to help them out while helping out others. Any questions can be directed to her at: devitt.11@gmail.com or you can contact her at 937-654-4252

Wellness Wednesday's Check and Connect with Our Families Here at Centennial

Check & Connect is a way for us to hear about what you are experiencing in real-time and provide you with up-to-date information about social, health, and government services. It is also a way to remind you of upcoming district and building events.

We know that calls during the day may make you think that we are calling about a concern with your child, which is why I want to inform you that any call from the number 614-365-5491 will be a check & connect call.

Please know that we are all in this together and we are looking forward to partnering with you this 2021-2022 academic year.

Thank you,

LaToya Williams
