Your support is appreciated

There are so many ways in which our families and community give back to our school, and we are truly grateful for your support. Your participation in our fall fundraisers, attendance at CEPO meetings, volunteering within the school, or donating items for school wide activities help all of us at Centennial Elementary.

Chipotle Night:  Wow, so many of you visited the Blaine Chipotle last week!  Thanks to your support, Centennial Elementary will be receiving a check for $513 to support the PBIS program.  

Give To The Max Day:  Thank you to Michelle Howard for once again putting together the fun and informative video for Give To The Max Day. For the first time ever, we met our fundraising goal.  In total, our supporters donated $1716.00 for us to purchase IXL math and reading software licenses. 

No shave

Donations accepted through Friday morning

Keep those coins rolling in!  Remember, each participating staff member who brings in $200 will be wearing a fun hair or beard design next week.  The deadline to bring in your contribution is 11:30 am on Friday, November 22.  


We are so thankful for our volunteers! 

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help CEPO with Bingo for Books, conference meals, the book fair and the Stroll. We're only able to do these things because of you! If you're interested in volunteering for future events, please fill out this form

CEPO will not have a monthly meeting in December.  Our next meeting is Wednesday, January 8th at 5:30 pm.
