Centennial G/T Parent Newsletter

April 2022

Howdy Parents!

My apologies for sending out the newsletter super late... I had a yearbook deadline to meet! This past month, students have been busy creating & fine-tuning all of their G/T extension projects for our upcoming expo. Being able to see their growth, learning, and overall pride in their presentations & prototypes has been amazing! I can't wait for you to see all of their hard work too.

Also, any work I send home with your kiddo is to be considered an extension and is NOT required. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Many thanks,

❤️-Mrs. Barrera
