CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE FALL PRODUCTION – OCTOBER 18-20 

It's time for the Centennial High School Fall Play. We are over the moon to be presenting you with our new production, Moon Over Buffalo!

Charlotte and George Hay, are an acting couple with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac “revised, one nostril version” and Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Fate has given these thespians one more shot at starring roles in The Scarlet Pimpernel epic and director Frank Capra himself is en route to Buffalo, NY to catch their matinee performance. Will Capra see Cyrano, Privates Lives or a disturbing mixture of the two? Hilarious misunderstandings pile on madcap misadventures, in this valentine to Theatre Hams everywhere. “Hilarious…building up its laughs methodically schtick by schtick. This play is filled with comic invention, running gags and a neat sense of absurdity…Go and enjoy.”

Don't miss opening night on Thursday, October 18th at 7:00PM, or join us for additional show times on Friday, October 19th at 7:00PM and Saturday, October 20th at 3:00PM and 7:00PM.

NO SCHOOL ON ELECTION DAY, 11/6 – it is now a Teacher Work Day 

This school year, November 6, 2018 has been changed from a regular school day, to a teacher work day. March 8, 2019 has been changed from a teacher work day, to a regular school day. The decision alleviates safety concerns raised by some parents and staff, allows for additional staff training on safety protocols, and maintains instructional time for Fulton students.

Additionally, the School Board has expressed interest in addressing a long term solution through the legislative process.

Ceramic Students Share their Talents to Fight Hunger

“The Empty Bowl” project is a world wide effort to fight hunger in our global communities. The community event consists of “Empty Bowls” created and donated by artists, during the event a simple meal of soup is served. Guests choose a bowl to use for the meal and to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal, and the bowl, guests contribute by purchasing the donated bowl. One hundred percent of each meal's proceeds are donated to local hunger-fighting organizations, such as food banks or soup kitchens to directly address the needs of hunger in the local community. The clay and glazes were donated by “Empty Bowl” supporter Ms. Jane Jerry providing students an opportunity to connect to one of the many benefits of artmaking outside the classroom to create value in the community.

ART CLUB 

Art Club members participated in the Memory Project; they submitted their contributions at the end of the semester. This Memory Project is close to the heart of Art Club president Karis Wang; she selected the project and presented it to Art Club members in early spring. Her presentation was so compelling that the art club was awarded funds to complete the project through the Executive Council. 

Young artists from around the world are invited to create portraits as special gifts for children facing challenges. Its goal is to create positive memories, kindness and peace within our global community. The portraits are purchased as a donation to the project to cover administrative costs.

This Fall, Art Club members will be creating portraits for the youth of Rohingya. Over the summer, recipients from Poland were excited to receive their portraits. Here is a link to share with those interested in viewing the video highlighting the delighted youth of Poland receiving their portraits and more about the CHS artists that created their portraits. It is a great project and the students loved participating and seeing the power of art making a difference in someone’s life.

Two Junior Knights Chosen for Selective Harvard Diversity Project 

Two Centennial High School students were recently selected for the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project (HDCDP), which is an Atlanta-based subsidiary of Harvard College.  Divali Legore and Sophia Woodrow were two of over 250 students from the Atlanta area who participated in a lengthy application process from which only 26 students were chosen.  The students will be part of the HDCDP Class of 2019, which is the second cohort of students to participate.  Following a 10-month commitment to the program locally, the students will travel to the Harvard University campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to attend the Harvard Debate Council’s Summer Residency.  At Harvard, they will engage in a rigorous academic regimen along with nearly 400 hundred students from around the world.  The experience culminates in a single elimination debate tournament at which last year’s Atlanta based students, the first cohort in the program, were victorious.

Concerned your teen driver is not prepared to handle the crazy traffic? Whether building confidence in new drivers, or knocking the hot-rods down a few pegs, the Accident Avoidance Workshops’ goal is to save lives by positively impacting new drivers’ development of their decision making abilities and physical skills necessary to maximize on their own vehicle’s capabilities without losing control of their vehicle, or themselves. Accident Avoidance Workshops covers “Emergency Driving Conditions” (what to do when everything goes horribly wrong) to prepare them to survive potentially fatal accidents. Ask anyone who has taken this course for their thoughts on how effective it is, how much better their teen driver handled basic driving techniques afterward, how much more confident both parent and teen driver felt after the workshop. As an added bonus, you can receive an insurance discount for completing this defensive driving course. Sign up for an Accident Avoidance Workshop at a location near you!
