Hello Centennial Comets!

February Recognition Assembly and Centennial Colour House Beads      
During our February Recognition Assembly, we took the time to recognize all the amazing things from the month of February.  Congratulations to all the students who were recognized for citizenship, leadership, bravery and respect.  Our Comets also earned 1166 Colour House beads for the month of February.  This means that our Centennial Comets have earned a total of 9415 Colour House beads for the year.  Amazing job Comets!!

Centennial School Council Family Fun Night- Postponed
Due to the current ETFO job action, our Centennial Family Fun Night has been postponed until further notice. 

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 Ethnicity.
What is Ethnicity?
Building upon the definition of race from last week, ethnicity is often confused with race.  Unlike race, which specifically looks at your physical features, ethnicity zeroes in on your family's cultural, and ancestral heritage - like language, citizenship, traditions, and history.  In other words, ethnic groups have a common identity, heritage, ancestry, or historical past, often with identifiable cultural, linguistic and/or religious characteristics. Ethnicity and race interact in complex ways that change over time dependent on the present day political and cultural context.
