January Family Paw Print

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to get more involved at Centennial Elementary, then learning about and getting plugged in with the PTO is a great way to start your year off on the right foot! One way to do this is to attend our monthly meetings.

Our next meeting is coming up on Tuesday, January 9th, at 6:30 p.m. in the library. In addition to discussing items directly related to PTO, we are fortunate to have a guest speaker from Grassroots St. Vrain coming to share some important information about how public schools are funded. Grassroots St. Vrain is a parent-operated non-profit organization whose vision is a St. Vrain Valley community that is informed about education funding in Colorado and empowered to take action for the benefit of our schools.

It is our goal to keep our meetings only an hour in length and, as always, free childcare will be provided for children ages 3 and up. So, grab a friend and join us! We look forward to seeing you there!

Donation Request – If you like clearance shopping after the holidays, the PTO needs bows, clothing boxes, gift bags, and other wrapping supplies for next year’s Giving Tree project and staff gifts for students. Many stores have these items marked 70-90% off, so please keep the PTO in mind as you are stocking up. We can store them at the school, so you can send donations in to the front office at any time. Thank you for considering this request!

Parent-Teacher Conference Meals – The meals provided by our Husky families for our staff to enjoy during Fall Conferences were a big hit! While it is hard to believe, another round of conferences is just around the corner in February. Once again, we would like to partner with you to provide some delicious food for our teachers during these long days. Please keep your eyes open for a Sign-Up Genius invitation that will offer numerous options for you to participate in supporting our incredible staff.
