    Our Final Week Together:

    A little rain brought a rainbow and made this year's Senior Sunset even more memorable as hundreds of Coyotes from the Class of 2023 showed up to enjoy a cookout, games, yearbook signings and one last good time together before graduation, scheduled for this week on Thursday, May 25th at 11:30am, at State Farm Stadium. Senior graduates, remember to arrive at Gate 3 by 10:30am for check-in.

    Congratulations to the Class of 2023 for setting a new school record, earning more than $19.4 Million Dollars in scholarships and awards. Last week, more than 250 of the graduating seniors were recognized for earning academic scholarships, athletic scholarships, CTE Master of Subject Area Seals, Peoria Unified Art Seals, or the necessary ASVAB scores to enlist in a branch of the United States Military. Daniel Nwazue won the Award for Scholastic Excellence and plans to study Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) this coming fall.

    Congratulations to Mrs. Tucker and Centennial Choir and thanks to all of the parents and students who attended Thursday evening’s final performance of the year. The show featured outstanding solo and ensemble performances as well as a tribute to senior choral members and Mrs. Tucker. Check out the above short clip from “There's Gonna be a Homecomin',” the show’s finale.
