Last school year saw many beloved teachers, coaches, and administrators leave Centennial High School. They each left their own mark on the school by inspiring their students. This year, there are more new staff members than in any past school year. This article will be the first in a series that will help you get to know the new teachers at Centennial. A new addition will be published every other Thursday, containing information about three new teachers. We want all of the staff to feel welcome here at Centennial!
