The students, teachers, coaches, and administrators of Centennial High School are excited to invite you and your family to Future Freshman Night, Wednesday evening, at 6:00 PM in the Main Gym. We will start with a spirited 6:00 PM assembly featuring various Coyote performance groups, as well as messages from student and adult leaders. Then, together with your 8th grader, you can choose what’s next: Tour the campus, meet teachers, counselors, coaches, and club sponsors, and generally discover the tremendous variety of academic, elective and extracurricular opportunities that await young men and women in Coyote Country! If your 8th grader is interested in playing football here at Centennial, there will be an information meeting at 7pm in the main gym following the assembly and campus tours. If you have questions about Open Enrollment, you can see Mrs. Robertson in the Library. We hope each 8th grader will leave filled with enthusiasm to join our culture of Coyote Pride, academic achievement, and ongoing excellence!
Congratulations to seniors Kenzie Frey and Te’Ana Moore, recognized by the Peoria Rotary Club as Centennial’s Students of the Month. Mr. Berquam nominated Kenzie. She serves as Centennial’s Student Body President and hopes to attend UCLA to major in Biology and work in the medical field. Te’Ana is a member of Drama Club and NHS and an officer in the Black Student Union. She plans to attend a university in the East Coast, where she’ll major in Political Science. Mrs. Colletti nominated Te’Ana. Both students were recognized for exemplifying Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”
Congratulations to our Spiritline Coaches Gonzales, Marinaro, Marshall and Ebal for helping our crowdleader team qualify for nationals on November 11th at a USA Cheer competition at Estrella Foothills High School.
