FREE Meals and Curbside Food Pick-Up for ALL Students

Learn more about FREE meals for ALL children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops.

While children are learning from home, Centennial Schools will safely give out meals to children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops. 

This means everyone can have nutritious meals each day. Participating in meal pick-ups helps both families and our school. More participation means more kids eating nutritious foods and funding for our school’s nutrition program. 

We have expanded the food service,
so please stop by and pick up meals for your students!

Equity at Centennial

Equity: Ensuring Opportunities for All

Centennial does not tolerate racism and social injustice.


We know we can do better. Our diversity and inclusion work began with an identified goal in the 2016 strategic plan. The District’s work focuses on closing the academic achievement gap, putting systems, policies and procedures in place to help ensure we are leveling the “learning field” for all students, and putting access and equity at the core of Centennial staff professional development.

Below find the District’s mission, vision, and belief statements as well as the work completed and next steps to ensure Centennial is supporting ALL students and staff.

MISSION

The mission of the Centennial School District, the connecting hub for our communities, is to empower all learners with voice, knowledge, and skills necessary for success in the 21st Century.

VISION

We will accomplish our mission by

  • CONNECTING. We offer vibrant learning environments by growing personal relationships throughout the school community, deepening learning by contributing to the community, and making coursework relevant to students’ lives.
  • ACHIEVING. We support the strengths and address the challenges of each individual student, working to eliminate barriers to learning and opportunity, by providing rigorous content, innovative and evidence-based instruction, and effective learning supports.
  • PREPARING. We foster perseverance, growth mindset, and personal advocacy, preparing students for success in a future of limitless possibility.
 

BELIEFS

  • We believe that all voices have value.
  • We believe that mutual relationships build safe and engaging communities.
  • We believe that each person has agency and power.
  • We believe that opportunities to learn, lead, and collaborate unleash potential.
  • We believe that life demands critical thinking and problem solving.
  • We believe that challenge is foundational to growth.
  • We believe that personalizing learning creates engagement and ownership.
  • We believe that reflection on data creates a drive for improvement.

 
EQUITY COMMITMENT

Centennial School District is committed to equity and access for all:

  • We will raise the achievement of all students while eliminating the predictability of academic achievement based upon class, race, gender, or disability.
  • We will implement culturally responsive teaching and leadership practices that reflect the contributions and perspectives of all people.
  • We will identify and address barriers that perpetuate opportunity and achievement gaps.
  • We will foster inclusive relationships across all Centennial communities.
