Week at a Glance

Hello Centennial Comets!

Congratulations to our Centennial Comets, who proudly represented our school at the First Lego League Competition last Saturday at Queen’s University.  In three short weeks, our team designed and programmed robots to meet challenges and complete missions.  During the Lego League competition, they had to complete three 10-minute presentations to different groups of judges.  They also participated in three different matches, where they had to program a robot to complete missions.  Great job by all team members! 

A reminder that Hot Lunch Orders are due to the school on Wednesday, November 27.

On Friday, December 6, our school will be participating in the Jingle Bell Run.  All students will take part in a 1 kilometre festive break during the school day.  We are asking students to bring in a non-perishable food item to exchange for a jingle bell.  Food items will then be donated to the Kingston Food Bank.

On Thursday, December 12 and Friday, December 13, we will be hosting our annual Holiday Market for students.  This is an opportunity for students to purchase gifts for friends and family members.  Prices of items will range from $0.50 to $5.00.  Funds from the Holiday Market will go towards school technology. 

On Tuesday, December 17, we invite our Comet community to join us for an afternoon of holiday activities, carol singing and hot chocolate The festivities will begin at 1:50 and finish at 3:10.  We invite all our Centennial community to join us for the afternoon.

The Limestone District School Board invites families to hear about our upcoming Student Census.  We want to better understand our students and their school experiences in order to serve them better.  Information sessions will provide an overview of the census and allow families the opportunity to share their voices.
