Families, just a reminder that we are not staffed to have students in the building any earlier than 8:25, nor are we able to supervise students outside until the doors open. Please plan to have your students arrive between 8:25 and 8:35. Thanks!

Returning K-4 Students Back This Week

Families, we know there was a little confusion about exactly when students would be starting back in the building. Just to be clear, we look forward to seeing all K-3 students who are returning to in-person learning this Thursday, April 1. Fourth-grade students in the Blue cohort will start on Thursday. The Red cohort will start on Friday.

We can’t wait to see you! Those students will continue with their current situation, whether it’s SPSOnline or other, until Thursday. All families who have requested to transition back to the building will be contacted this week with more information and details – please keep an eye on your email!

Depending on the assignment you received from your child’s teacher, you will be starting back on Thursday, April 1 (blue cohort) or Friday, April 2 (red cohort). (Monday and Tuesday will be regular school days online with their whole class.) Fifth-graders will come back the following week: April 8 (blue cohort) and April 9 (red cohort).

Join Us for Family Literacy Week!

Families, the week of March 15-19 is Centennial’s Family Literacy Week. We will be celebrating books and reading all week around the topic of “Space.” We hope you will join us!

Space resources:

Our fabulous librarian Ms. Phillips has put together an amazing collection of read-alouds, games and links to lots of space-y information to get you started on your explorations of the universe! This time, the read-alouds include books read by Principal Williams, Mrs. Donaldson, Mrs. Granados, Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Tunnell, Ms. Hood, Mrs. Blake, Mrs. Gifford, Mrs. Sierzega (Mrs. S), and Mrs. Jolda, as well as Ms. Phillips, and a sing-along with Mrs. Wagner!

Games:

She has also created some fun games for all of our families to play at home together:
  • Game boards, materials and instructions will be sent home with all K-3 students the week of March 8.
  • Grade 4-5 students and Centennial students currently attending SPSOnline can pick up packets with lunch on Wednesday, March 17, between 11 and 1 at the north (cafeteria) door, or stop by the front office window during office hours (7:30-4).
  • Watch these videos with your teachers showing you how to play: The Mars Game / Book-opoly
  • You can also view all game instructions here.

In-Person Learning Updates and Program Changes

We are looking forward to having our 4th (April 1) and 5th (April 8) grade students returning to in-person learning at CES! Classes will be divided into cohorts with approximately half the class attending in person on Mondays and Thursdays and the other half attending Tuesdays and Fridays. We are working on creating these cohorts and will let you know your child’s placement as soon as possible.

Students currently in distance learning with Mrs. Galloway, Mr. Mowery, Mr. Clemons or Mrs. Rankins will automatically be moved to in person learning. If you intend to transfer your student from CES to SPS Online or vice versa, you will need to fill out a transfer request form: link to transfer form (English) and link to transfer form (Spanish). Please return this form as soon as possible to the Centennial office. The deadline for transfer requests is March 17.

Kindergarten through third-grade students who wish to make a transfer request either from CES to SPS Online or from SPS Online to CES must also fill out the transfer forms linked above. The deadline for these transfer requests is also March 17. CES and SPS Online will arrange to have these students start at the earliest date possible.

Please stay tuned for additional information!
