Innovation Plan

Hi Fabulous Centennial Parents,

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the summer.

As you know, we go in front of the Board of Ed to present our Innovation Plan Monday the 17th. Any and all physical support from parents would be awesome. This meeting is not one for public comment, as I think that happens Thursday.

Also, wanted to let you know that the teacher vote on the plan has closed and we reached the super majority needed! One positive step toward the end!!

Thanks for all you do to support Centennial. We’re SO close!!
