Bienvenidos and Welcome to Centennial Elementary! We invite you to be a part of our growing community! Centennial PTA welcomes you in our commitment to support our teachers and students in achieving success in a diverse and healthy environment. We have plenty of opportunities to get involved and help out our school. From volunteering in the classrooms or our library to fundraising or working in our community garden, we would appreciate any amount of time that you would like to give.

The mission of the PTA of Centennial Elementary is:

  • To assist in the lifelong learning which goes on between the student, teacher, parent, school and community.
  • To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
  • A powerful voice for all children.
  • A resource for families and communities.
  • An advocate for the social, emotional physical education of every child.

Next PTA meeting:  May 18, 6:30 p.m., Virtual

We welcome you to attend our PTA meetings once a month. We generally meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the school. The purpose of our meetings is to hear school news from our principal, update everyone on the happenings of the school, plan fundraising and other events, and discuss other pertinent topics related to the community and Centennial. Child care is provided if meeting is held in person.

We will continue to conduct virtual PTA meetings to start the 20/21 school year. Starting in September, we will resume our normal start at 6:30pm. Please join us 5-10 minutes early to check-in and ask any Zoom protocol questions you have.
