Family Fun Night Volunteers Needed!

Family Fun Night is our biggest PTO event of the year, and we need YOU to make it happen!  We are so thankful for all of the Husky staff members and families who have already signed up to help with Family Fun Night, but we still need several more people to help out with one of the shifts at the evening’s festivities, which enables everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy half of the event with their families, too.  Our goal is to have all of the game volunteers signed up by no later than Monday, May 8th.  Remember, as an added bonus, with each shift you serve, your name will be entered into special volunteer-only drawings!  Please go to www.ptocentennial.com/family-fun-night-volunteer-sign-up to find the link to the Family Fun Night Volunteer Sign Ups.  We are hopeful that we can come together to make this end-of-year celebration the best one yet!

Award Winning Husky Families! Staff Appreciation Week 2017

 Wow!  Thank you so much to everyone who helped to roll out the red carpet in honor of our very special teachers and staff at Centennial Elementary during Staff Appreciation Week.  All of your food donations and various means of support created a star-studded celebration of our amazing all-star cast!  All of the teachers and staff members thoroughly enjoyed all of the week’s festivities, gifts, and special expressions of appreciation.  Thank you for your partnership in making Staff Appreciation week so very special!

May General PTO Meeting

Our last general PTO Meeting of the year will take place on Tuesday, May 9th, at 6:30 p.m.  As we conclude our “Grants in Action” speaker series, our final guest presenters will include two of our amazing first-grade teachers, Mrs. Spendlow and Mr. McNeely.  Both teachers received PTO grant money this year, and we look forward to hearing about how their new resources are having a positive impact on learning in their classrooms.

Additionally, as we wrap up the year, we will be holding an election for a co-secretary board position that is opening up as well as discussing other PTO leadership and service opportunities for the 2017-2018 school year.

Please note that the May meeting will take place in Mrs. Spendlow’s 1st Grade Classroom (Room 311 in the Blue Pod).  As always, free childcare is provided for children ages 3 and up, and we strive to keep our meetings only an hour in length.  We hope to see you there!
