Week at a Glance- October 14 to October 18
Posted on 10/11/2019
Great Week AheadHello Centennial Comets!

At Centennial, we have lots to be thankful for.  We hope that all our Centennial families have a great Thanksgiving and holiday Monday.  A reminder that there’s no school on Monday.

On Tuesday, October 29th, our school council will be hosting a Halloween Dance from 6:00 to 8:00 in our gymnasium.  Everyone’s encouraged to come in their costume.  There will be a DJ and bake sale.  Information and RSVP will be sent home next week.  We hope to see all our Comets there!

A reminder that we are an Eco-Certified school.  We ask that all students bring a ‘litter less lunch’ to assist in reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfills.  Let’s do our part for the environment.  Thank you for your support with this initiative.  

A reminder that with the implementation of SafeArrival, you no longer need to call the school to report your child’s absence.  
There are three ways you can report your student’s absence in advance:
1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger blue app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store or from School Messenger website or you can select it from within the LDSB mobile app. The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Make sure you use the same email address your child’s school has on file. If you do not use that same email address, you will not be able to create an account. You You may have already created an account when we introduced the Communicate broadcast system. Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.

We continue to be a host site for the Early ON Child and Family Centre in our area. The EarlyON Centres offer a range of quality, drop-in programs that are free and open to all parents, caregivers and their children, aged 0 to 6.
