final bingo

 PBIS News

'Tis the season to spread holiday cheer! On December 9th all Centennial Elementary students received a PBIS Bingo worksheet and will try to complete three kindness tasks in a row. We know they can do it!  Once completed, students should turn in the form to their teacher for a chance to win a prize at the holiday sing-a-long on December 20.

Please encourage your child to work on completing their kindness tasks. (The staff is also participating in a similar activity 😊).

2020-21 Centennial Preschool Registration Coming Soon!  

***Formerly KC Preschool and School Readiness Preschool

Centennial Preschool provides full- and part-day experiences designed to help children prepare to enter kindergarten with the skills and behaviors necessary to be successful. Preschoolers work on listening, personal and social development, language and literacy, thinking and math skills through guided play, group time, and social interaction. Centennial Preschool utilizes Creative Curriculum for Preschool, is taught by licensed teachers, and is 4-Star Parent Aware rated.

Preschool registration for the 20-21 school year is by lottery. Registration opens on January 15, and registrations submitted by 8 am on January 31 will be included in the lottery.  Centennial Preschool classrooms are located at Blue Heron, Centerville, Centennial, Golden Lake, Rice Lake Elementary and the Early Childhood Center. 

Completing a registration does not guarantee placement in a class, and registering earlier does not increase your chance of receiving a placement. Registrations received after 8 am on January 31 will be reviewed in the order received after all lottery registrations are processed. A $40 registration fee is charged if and when your child’s contract is approved.

For more information please contact the Early Childhood office at  or 763-792-6120.

Enroll online through Eleyo
