We want to do everything we can to provide our staff with proper support and our students with what they need to learn and grow, and that takes money. Colorado schools, sadly, rank 43rd out of all of the states in our country when it comes to per student spending. Money from PTO fundraisers and donations helps pay for a lot of things that schools in other states take as a given, including classroom supplies.
Yes, we do invest in “fun” stuff too, like Cocoa with Santa and our Family Fun Night, because we believe these types of events are an important part of what makes our kids’ learning experience enjoyable and memorable.
Overall, we are committed to using our money wisely to make the greatest positive impact possible. Each year we set initial budget goals to help us support the school in various ways. Quite simply, the more that we can raise, the more good we can do for Centennial Elementary. We have big dreams such as providing funding for additional staffing, offering specialized training for our staff, and purchasing advanced technology to support student learning, but we need your help to make these dreams a reality!
