Get Involved and Stay Informed (3-19-2018)
Principal Olivero here with your weekly school update.
As shared last week, we are planning to have two lockdown drills on this coming Wednesday, March 21st. I ask that parents read a posted letter from me on the school website regarding these two lockdown drills regarding school safety. Because I know school safety is a hot topic and parents may want to know what the school is doing to keep our students and staff safe, I am holding a brief meeting Tuesday night, March 20th, at 6pm. The meeting will be in the media center. Interested parties are welcome to attend. Again, I encourage all parents to read the letter from me posted on the school website.
This Thursday night, March 22nd, at 7pm, in the media center, the Centurion Foundation, along with realtor Valarie Upham, will bring in Jack Renkens to speak to our parents who have student-athletes. Mr. Renkens is a highly ranked athletic educational speaker. Mr. Renkens will share information regarding how best to market student-athletes for athletic college scholarships. He specifically will address the use of social media and what role the coach and parents have in this process. Again, that’s at 7pm this Thursday night.
Speaking of the Centurion Foundation, they need additional parental help. As some know, the CF provides a vehicle for over 25 student/parent booster clubs on campus to fundraise using a 501c non-profit status. As we gear up for another school year, we need for someone who may have a finance background to serve as a Treasurer for the 2018-19 academic year. They are seeking to bring this person on board now so that the retiring treasurer can help in the transition for next year. If this sounds like a way you can help out our parents and our students, please email me and I will forward your email address to the treasurer.
Progress report grades for second semester will be coming home on Friday. Please look for the take-home report card or view the grades online via the ParentPortal.
Last, we are seeking the help of retired community members to help provide us an extra pair or eyes and ears on campus. If you know someone who could give up 2-3 hours a week to help us “neighborhood watch” our campus, please have them contact me at school. We think it would be good to create a partnership with our senior community at the same time help us by providing greater campus supervision coverage. Please help us spread the word that we are seeking retired citizens to help at school.
Have a great spring break if I don’t see you now before then.
