Centennial High School will soon have its own app for student and teacher use. The app, available on any phone that can access a mobile web browser, will consolidate information about Centennial, allow administrators to assign school events with geographical locations, and reward students who attend these events.
The app will use FanCams and allow teachers to send push notifications to promote school spirit. It will link to The Wingspan, online store, and school website, and will even display rosters for Centennial’s varsity and junior varsity teams for each sport.
In order to design the app, Centennial’s Student Government Association (SGA) has collaborated with Superfan U, a company that develops spirit apps for schools and universities. Senior Pranav Ganapathy, president of the SGA, has led the effort to introduce the app to Centennial. The SGA will be purchasing the app and implementing it.
The app will have powerful implications for the school, including parents, alumni, and students and staff.
“It’s a great way to bring the community together,” Ganapathy commented.
