After rehearsal is over, we will distribute the following

  • Tickets (All students will receive 12)
  • If students need additional tickets, they will be asked to wait in their seats.   They will be distributed in an orderly fashion until they are all given out. Last year, everyone waiting got 6 extra, I wouldn't plan on more than 6 as this class is larger than last years. If parents need more than 18 tickets they will need to have their student ask other students for extras.
  • Tassels if a student didn't receive one
  • Honor Cords and Honor Pins - this is only for students with a predesignated honor grad status - this is decided by the county based on cumulative weighted average of 88% or higher.

Graduation will begin PROMPTLY at 8pm.   Last year we had many, many families who were still walking in and getting seated as the graduates entered the venue. Families who are late will be held to the outside of the seating area until all seniors have been seated.   We will not hold the start of the ceremony.
 
Photos:   Cady Studios will be on hand for photography.

Centennial’s First Annual Student Job Fair  

Centennial PTSA in partnership with the CTE department held a job fair on May 9 and 10.  Over 30 companies committed to being available to meet with students during lunches and share information about positions from summer work to internships to full time work for seniors who plan to move into the workforce right after graduation.  Students checked out information, filled out applications over lunch and shared their resumes. Several students visited the Learning Commons to print resumes before touring the job fair.  The employers represented a diverse group from Tide Cleaners to Piedmont Urgent Care.  The students were complimented on their professionalism and several were offered jobs.  Fulton Schools Board Vice-President Julia Bernath stopped by and interviewed some of the employers, and Dr. Newbold received plenty of positive feedback about the opportunities for students and employers through this event.  One employer thought finding one good employee would make the day but left with four good prospects.  An underclassman visited three tables and she was offered two jobs.  Thank you to all who were involved in making this event happen.


Nathan Jacobi Wins Advocacy Scholarship  

Centennial Senior Nathan Jacobi was awarded a $1000 Sally FitzGerald Scholarship for showing high academic standards as well as leadership in the school and community.  A large part of winning the scholarship is based on the essay portion describing a time when the student acted as an advocate.   Nathan will attend the UGA Honors College next year, and plans to major in an engineering field, political science or data science. He also plans to participate in the Redcoat marching band at UGA. Nathan will use the scholarship money for academic opportunities offered at UGA such as studying abroad.

 


Centennial HOSA Students Recognized by School Board  

Seniors Karis Wang and Alexandra Chapman were recognized at the FCS Board of Education meeting last week for their first and second place finishes in the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) state competition.  Karis competed in the extemporaneous Health poster competition and placed first while Alexandra place second in the extemporaneous writing contest.

Centennial Hosts North Fulton Special Olympics   

Centennial High School hosted Special Olympians from across North Fulton County last week. Athletes from Kindergarten through 12th grade and beyond were joined by student and adult volunteers and countless teachers and coaches to help make the event special. Centennial had a starring role in the opening ceremonies with Ryan completing the running of the torch, Mika singing an amazing rendition of the National Anthem, and Nia and Alexandria kicking off the games for the day. The spirit of the Special Olympics (“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”) was evident in all the athletes. Even Fulton Schools Board of Education Vice-President Julia Bernath visited the event for her monthly video – make sure that you check it out.



     

Centennial FBLA  

Centennial students Rane Hill (FBLA President) and Noah Hill (FBLA Member) worked at the March of Dimes March for Babies at the Ameris Amphitheatre.  The FBLA students also raised money selling Yankee Candles, chicken biscuits and candy to earn the $300 that they were able to donate to the March of Dimes organization. 



Now, FBLA is collecting peanut butter for a local community food bank in Roswell.  
Understanding that many students rely on school lunches and breakfasts as a major source for food, FBLA has undertaken the collection of a food source (peanut butter) that can be donated to families in need.  They have collected well over 100 jars in the last two weeks. These are examples of several service projects supported by this group, which is why Centennial FBLA has won the prestigious Gold Award for the second year in a row.  Way to go Knights!

Centennial Governance Council RFF: Exam Style EOC Test Days  

Thanks to everyone who worked to make the first time use of an exam style schedule for the EOC testing successful.  In previous years, EOC exams have taken at least twice as many days to complete with classes for students not taking the exams ranging anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours depending on the day and the period.  This year’s schedule allowed Centennial to complete the testing in five days with much less disruption to the schedule.  Buses efficiently picked up students at their regular time and mid-morning and the afternoon classes moved smoothly.  

All of this was accomplished through the efforts of the Centennial School Governance Council (SGC) following the Request for Flexibility (RFF) process and the use of Flexible Funding money allocated to charter system schools.  If you have any comments on the EOC schedule or thoughts about waivers that you think would benefit the school and its students, please contact the SGC Chair Diane Jacobi (JacobiD@fultonschools.org) to share your ideas.

Centennial School Governance Council Election Results and Funding  

SGC would like to congratulate parent representatives Amy Hastings and Anne Johnson as well as teacher representative Zack Kroll for their elections to Centennial's School Governance Council!  They will begin their 2-year terms in July 2019.   We appreciate their desire to serve and look forward to their participation on our council this fall!

In addition, as part of the Fulton County Schools Charter System, Centennial received charter system funds for distribution within our school content areas and programs. The distribution of these funds is tied to the objectives set in our Strategic Plan and they are intended to supplement areas of need as well as give our students access to new and innovative learning tools.  So far this year, funds have been used to pay for the cost of the mid-morning bus run during End of Course testing to facilitate student achievement.  The balance is approximately $100,000.  However, the Fulton County Board of Education voted earlier this year to allow 100% of these funds to be carried over to the next budget year.  The SGC will be holding a work session on May 21 to discuss the best ways to use this money.  If you have any thoughts about waivers, programs or capital improvements that you think would benefit the school and its students, please contact the SGC Chair Diane Jacobi (JacobiD@fultonschools.org) to share your ideas.

School Board Votes to Appoint Dr. Mike Looney New Superintendent  



The Board of Education is very excited to announce Dr. Michael “Mike” Looney as the new Superintendent.

Serving as a superintendent for 14 years, ten at his current district, Dr. Looney has a proven track record in student achievement and leadership.  Dr. Looney served in the U.S. Marine Corps before starting his career in education as a substitute teacher.  He has since developed experience as a teacher, principal, assistant superintendent, and holds an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.  In 2015, Looney was named Tennessee Superintendent of the Year by his peers.  The Board closely reviewed his qualifications and experience, which line up well with the key elements necessary for leading our schools and preparing all students to graduate and succeed on their chosen path.  These attributes were the top ones named on the community survey. CEO and teaching/learning (academic experience) were the two highest priorities noted for the new superintendent’s experience.  Leadership and communication (listening skills) were the top two personal attributes.

3 Ways to Manage Anger  

EAnger can be defined as a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. It is a basic human emotion that we all have but, we must learn to manage it effectively. Therefore, here are three ways to manage anger.

Know your triggers. Often there are specific things that can make us angry automatically. The anger emotion can be stimulated by a person, place, situation, or a thing. Being able to identify the triggers that stimulate your anger is a crucial part of anger management. Take time to explore the things that trigger you and you can begin to consider ways to reduce your anger. 

Know your body. Anger is an emotion that tends to start out small and increasingly grows to a higher level. Initially you may be upset or irritated, but then you eventually become angry as things continue to annoy you. When you do become angry, there are normally signs that your body gives you as a warning. Some of those signs may include; heavy breathing, raised voice (yelling), crying, throwing things, shaky or sweaty hands, and so much more. Identify the signs that your body gives you to help you know when your angry, so you can better manage it. 

Have healthy coping skills. Healthy coping strategies are the positive ways that we deal with the anger emotion. Unfortunately, we also can adopt some unhealthy coping strategies that may feel good but are not as effective. Healthy coping skills include: taking a timeout, deep breathing, exercise, talking about the problem, and seeking professional help. Figuring out how to handle your anger will help you to be a healthier person.

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Be sure to mention the Centennial PTSA as your referral, as AAW donates a portion of their proceeds from the workshops back to our school.


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!
