Carnival Information

Important Reminders from the Office:

  • Arrival time in the morning for students is 8:45. Please do not drop off your child(ren) any earlier as we do not have any supervision for them.
  • We are noticing an uptick in early sign outs for the reason of avoiding traffic. It is highly disruptive to pick up your child 5-10 minutes before dismissal. Teachers are instructing up until the bell and when we have to interrupt them to get a student, they have to stop their instruction for everyone. Please do not sign your child out early to avoid traffic.
  • If you need to get a message to your child regarding end of day plans, please notify the office prior to 3pm. That is when we deliver messages to classrooms and we cannot guarantee they will get a message after 3pm.
  • The Health Office is in need of clothing donations. We are most in need for boys pants and underwear in sizes small-medium, but will gladly take and girls or boys small – large. Stretchy pants are the most helpful. Thank you!

Gifted and Talented Referrals 

Each year, schools in St. Vrain Valley School District complete a process to identify students who demonstrate exceptional ability or performance in one or more academic areas and may, therefore, qualify for Gifted/Talented educational services. These students usually perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s), and they require additional academic challenges in order to support their continued educational growth and progress. In addition, they usually demonstrate characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength areas. 

Referrals are open through the month of September and will close on the last day of the month. Referrals after that date will be addressed on a case by case basis. Completing a referral guarantees a review of the student profile to determine if testing is recommended for the student. The process for identification requires a body of evidence and often takes place throughout the school year.

The process takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

Centennial Families:

This year, the FAFSA landscape is changing significantly, and we understand that this will heighten the levels of stress and uncertainty. We have been working hard to provide college resources for your family.  We are excited to announce that Mead High School is hosting the College Funding Coach on Thursday October 19th, from 6:00-7:30pm.  The presentation will be offered in-person at Mead High School. This free event is for any family wanting to learn how to pay for college (Preschool – High School).

The College Funding Coach was founded in 2002 to help families better understand the complex strategies for paying for college and making higher education more affordable. Mark DeBord, from The College Funding Coach, is on a mission to help Colorado families pay for their children’s education. This interactive workshop, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College, teaches parents the rules of the game when it comes to paying for your child’s education.

This is a free educational in-person event. Please register by clicking HERE or on the flyer attached to this email.

Hi Centennial Families,

September is Attendance Awareness Month! We have continued to talk at school about our Strive for Five this school year through the pledges students made for 5 or fewer absences. This school year, we have surpassed our attendance rate for this same time last year! Our attendance rate is 96.38%! Each month we meet 96% as a grade level, students earn an extra recess. 1st grade has the highest attendance rate right now at 97.22%. Being at school as often as possible supports students in feeling successful. Keep up the strong work!

We continue to celebrate the positive behavior at school by noticing it and handing out Tracks and Class PAWS! Students earned a Decades Day for their amazing behavior in August and are working toward earning a PJ Day for September. We will call for all Class PAWS at our October assembly and share if we have met our goals! Please reach out anytime.
