Movember 2

It's looking a little hairy around Centennial Elementary these days.....

On Monday, November 18th, you may start bringing in coins, bills, or checks (payable to CEPO) to “vote” for one or more of the adults participating in No Shave November.  Any adult who has at least $200 dollars in his bucket by the end of next week will have to create a funny and embarrassing haircut and beard design to wear at school the following week.  Donations will support the American Cancer Society and our Centennial Elementary Parent Organization (CEPO).  Thank you for your participation.
