 Gearing up for Next School Year: Adopt-a-Backpack Donations Needed

Celebrating 25 years of providing school supplies to students! With generous donations from the community, school supplies are provided to Centennial students and families in need through the Adopt-A-Backpack program. It's not too early to start thinking about next school year. Click here to find out how you can help fill a backpack and support a student.

 COVID Testing for Students and Families

The Minnesota Department of Health announced a recommendation for all school-age youth returning to school, youth sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, to get tested every two weeks through the end of the school year. While it is not a requirement, regular testing complements other safety measures already in place, such as masking and social distancing. Testing can help keep schools open and sports operating and ensure we are limiting the spread of COVID-19. Testing information can be found here.

Equity Coordinator

The Centennial School District has had continued dialogue with the school board regarding the hiring of an Equity Coordinator position for our schools (the job is currently posted and the description can be found here). The coordinator will help spearhead the effort to develop a more positive climate that leads to educational equity and improved student achievement for all students. With an Equity Audit led by Equity Alliance MN and the hiring of an Equity Coordinator, we are committed to improve the culture of our schools. Click here information on initiatives that help support each student.

 Partnership with Equity Alliance MN

The District’s diversity and inclusion work began with an identified goal in the 2016 strategic plan. The District’s work has focused on closing the academic achievement gap, putting systems, policies, and procedures in place to help ensure we are supporting the academic and social emotional health of all students, and putting access and equity at the core of Centennial staff professional development.

 We will continue our partnership with Equity Alliance MN to build a system:

of support for all students, especially our BIPOC and minoritized students.

to create a safer, more welcoming, and healthier environment in our schools.

as an affirmation and support of each student as a unique, valued, and empowered member of Centennial Schools
