Principal's Message

  • Centennial Families:


    I hope you all have enjoyed a wonderful holiday season!


    Election Day is February 13, 2018!


    I am reaching out to you today on a topic that I believe is extremely important to the future of the Bethel School District. As most of you know, we have an upcoming school improvement bond/levy on Feb. 13th. If you have attended school events in our building this fall and early winter you have noticed an intentional push to inform parents about the upcoming bond. I want to encourage all parents to cast a ballot and have a voice in the decision that will directly impact our students.


    Proposed Bond Projects Include:

    • 1 New Comprehensive High School (The new high school will serve Centennial Elementary students)
    • 2 New Elementary Schools
    • Replace Challenger High School
    • Modernization of Bethel High School, Cedarcrest Middle School, Elk Plain School of Choice, Evergreen Elementary and Naches Trail Elementary.
    • HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning replacements at Centennial and other schools)
    • as well as other health and safety modernizations


    Proposed Levy Projects Include:

    • Special Education Programs
    • Transportation Costs
    • Qualified Substitute Teachers
    • Extra-Curricular Activities (Academic and Athletic)
    • Extended day learning opportunities for students
    • Local bargaining agreements made in good faith with school staff
    • Teacher training days and other professional development opportunities with staff
    • All Technology (Ipads, cases, Keyboards, etc.)


     Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Please vote!


    Homework Club:

    I want to encourage students interested to participate in our after school homework club open for all students students Monday through Wednesday from 3:15pm-4:15 pm. This is an extended learning opportunity for students who may need extra assistance with their academics. Please contact the office if you have any questions about this program.


    Flu Season:

    It is important for the safety and well-being of all students and staff that when students are showing flu-like symptoms, that they remain home so they do not infect other students on campus. Students who are showing these symptoms at school will be sent home. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


    The staff at Centennial would like to continue to emphasize ways for parents to partner with the school and support students this year:

    1. Have your student to school prepared and on time each day (8:30 is our tardy bell).
    2. Checking your student’s backpack and discussing its contents as well as your student’s day – Use the magnet given to you at November conferences.
    3. Initiating communication with your student’s teacher to ensure a positive school experience.
    4. Signing in and out of the office each time you visit
