Week at a Glance

Hello Centennial Comets!

Thank You to Our School Council
On behalf of all the staff at Centennial, we would like to thank our Centennial school council and Centennial school community for the staff appreciation pancake breakfast last Thursday.  We truly appreciate and value the continued support of our school council and parent community.

Pink Shirt Day- February 26
On Wednesday, February 26, we are encouraging our Comets to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that Comets don't tolerate bullying.

Maker Space Donations
We are currently accepting donations of fabric, craft items and Lego for our Maker Space/Activity Room.  If you have any items to donate, please drop them off at the office.

LDSB Student Census
This spring, the Limestone District School Board will ask students in Grades 4 to 12 to participate in a confidential Student Census so that we can learn more about our students – their backgrounds, experiences and needs – to identify where systemic barriers exist, and how to eliminate discriminatory biases in our classes and schools.  Each week, we will share information regarding the Student Census.
This week’s Census Info focuses on Gender Identity
What is Gender Identity?
Gender identity refers to a person’s internal sense or feeling of being a woman, a man, both, neither or anywhere on the gender spectrum, which may or may not be the same as the person’s sex assigned at birth (e.g. male, female, intersex) It is different from and does not determine a person’s sexual orientation.
