Dear Staff, Students, and Parents,
Welcome to Centennial School! Our commitment at Centennial School is to provide a safe, and academically challenging environment that will empower students to become problem solvers, independent thinkers, and inspired learning prepared to thrive in the thwenty-first century. High standards and expectations for each student ion regard to academic performance and responsible citizenship, are the foundation of our school. It is with pride, that when students leave our building, that they are ready for the next stage of their life.
Within our building, Centennial Staff utilizes various teaching techniques to meet the student's learning styles, in order to best educate them in the foundational skills, such as: mathmaticalk computations, reading fluency and comprehension. We use technology to assist in the instruction of our lessons. Smart Board technology, Renaissance Learning tools Lexia, IXL, and AIMs Web, are just some tolls we use to compile data to help prepare lessons that will advance our students academically, and to help them think more critcally about what they are learning. Each student has their own device in the building, to access Google Classroom, as well as an email address to help facilitate communication with their teachers.
Nelson Mandela once said "Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world". I want our student to change the world! As the school year progresses, you will come to realize, that I am your child's biggest advocate here in the school, I will work tirelessly to ensure that they are welcomed here, and will provide an atmosphere that is positive, caring, and focused on learning, which are my top priorities. Their journey will be one that I truly hope they will enjoy, and look forward to on a day to day basis.
Mrs. Anne McDonnell
