Thanks for Helping Students Get Started on the Right Foot!

370 students received backpacks from the Adopt-A-Backpack program
September 17, 2017

Adopting a backpack helps ensure Centennial students are off to school on the right foot. The program helped 370 students and 175 families. Each adopter purchased exactly what their student needed for the new school year and supplies were put into a backpack ready for distribution. This program has grown each year and has proven to be helpful in offsetting the budget while increasing the quality of the backpacks and supplies. Bravo, Adopters!
