Centennial Elementary Key Message
Centennial Elementary is an arts-integrated school, meaning we use the same curriculum as the rest of the district, but we also incorporate music, movement, drama and visual arts. The effect is like adding nitrous to 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 ). Stop in and see awesome in action!
