Centennial Elementary Key Message
Centennial Elementary is in the process of becoming an arts-integrated school. That means we use the same curriculum as the rest of the schools, but we include music, movement, drama and visual arts when we can. The effect is like adding nitrous to the gasoline. It turns the regular Chevy Neon curriculum into a supercharged dragster curriculum. Our state testing scores went up dramatically last year with that as one additive.
We also are utilizing parents as partners more than ever. Through our PTA and our partnership with ON semi-conductor and the United Presbyterian Church, we had a book swap/art show, a summer reading program, Parents with Pastries morning and we are in our second year of Dads on Duty (where dads spend the day in a variety of classrooms ). You should stop in and see awesome in action!
