To enhance positive school culture, Centennial High School will partner with Youth Frontiers, the leading character education organization in the Upper Midwest, to host a comprehensive Respect Retreat for the 10th grade class on October 6-8 at the school. Students are assigned to a retreat day based on their advisory, making a big school feel small. Youth Frontiers delivers programs that build positive school communities and strengthen student character.
The retreats use games, music, small-group discussions and inspiring stories that engage students’ hearts and break down walls between young people. Throughout the retreat day, students begin to exhibit traits of true character – mending relationships, stating acts of courage and respecting themselves and others. Comprehensive follow-up materials also provide a way for educators and students to extend the impact of the retreat. Small groups will be facilitated by Senior Peer Leaders and Centennial High School Support Service Staff.
