CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL PTSA'S ONLINE NEWSLETTER
Happy New Year Centennial - Look at Our Shiny New Main Entrance!

We are so excited to start using Centennial's brand new entrance foyer. Our front desk, attendance office, and resource officer office are all located as soon as you walk in the building. Of course, the main office and our rock star Learning Commons are also accessible right off the new entrance way. We are still awaiting some furniture for our new spaces, but the new entrance is open for business! Come by and check it out!

Also note that the student drop-off area will be moved back to our traditional area, the front loop by the new atrium. All student drop off should occur in this area and there should no longer be drop off in the stadium parking lot. As you work your way into the drop off loop, please utilize both lanes for drop off and remain in your lane as best as possible. This allows us to move many cars through in a timely fashion. Cars turning right into the school should maintain the outside lane, leaving the inside lane for cars turning left. This should keep the intersection from being blocked, especially in the morning. Also, as traffic moves in front of you when picking up, please continue to move forward, even if you are waiting on your student. We want to continue to allow cars into the loop without backing up traffic. It will take a few weeks but we appreciate everyone's patience as we acclimate back to our traditional drop-off procedure.
The SPaCE - Centennial's New Makerspace
Centennial's makerspace is in business! A makerspace is a place where students create and learn with their hands. The SPaCE is located in the Learning Commons. It has 3 rooms - the Studio, the Shop, and the Surge. Students can code, make videos, sew, create things with 3D printers, embroider, build, make t-shirts, etc. Tell your students to come on in and check it out. Centennial is the ONLY Fulton County high school with a makerspace - brought to you by your Governance Council through the Seed Fund Grant. Go Knights!




Advanced Placement (AP) Night - 2/8
 
AP Night is on Wednesday, February 8 at 6pm - please put this on your calendar. This is for both students and parents and is for all grades.
 
This is a chance to find out about all of the many AP opportunities that Centennial offers its students.  There will be breakout sessions with the various AP teachers so that students and parents can learn as much as possible about the subjects.   
 
Applications for the AP classes will be due February 16.
 
AP classes are college level classes that are taught in high school.  They are an excellent way to experience college level curriculum and a good preparation for post high school.  After taking an AP course, students take an AP exam.  Based on the results of that exam, a student may be able to earn college credit for the course, which is a bonus financial savings.
 
Fulton County covers the cost of all AP exams that are taken at the end of a course. Many counties, such as Forsyth, do not.
 
Please make sure that you attend this very valuable event.
PTSA Senior Service Scholarship - Attend Application Workshops Jan 26 or Jan 27 during lunch
Each year the Centennial High School PTSA offers several scholarships, some up to $1000, recognizing exceptional dedication to volunteerism among the senior class students. These scholarships will be awarded to students who best exemplify the PTSA's ideals of outstanding commitment of service to others in our school, community and world.
Any graduating senior with a GPA of 80 or higher who is enrolling at a college, university or technical institute of higher learning may apply.  Applicants (or their families) must be a member of the PTSA by the end of the first semester to be eligible.

Johns Creek Student Leadership Program
ATTENTION Freshmen and Sophomores
Student Leadership Johns Creek is a program for emerging leaders in their sophomore and junior years. Students apply in January of their Freshman or Sophomore year for the 2 year program. Applicants are accepted from Centennial, Chattahoochee, Johns Creek and Northview High schools. The program is run by an advisory council under the board directorship of Leadership Johns Creek, a 501c3 non-profit in collaboration with Fulton County Schools. 

In year one of this 2 year leadership program, leadership skills will be developed through a series of structured learning experiences and then utilized in the completion of community service projects. In the second year, students will focus on implementing the skills learned during year one. The goal is for the students to become catalysts for change in their schools and communities. 

Students are selected from area Johns Creek high schools and will be introduced to a core curriculum of leadership skills including goal setting, project management, team building, and communication skills. In addition, opportunities will be provided to explore local, county and state governments.
All students at Centennial are eligible to participate in this program
 
The application and accompanying documentation are due to Amanda Skrok by January 30, 2017. If you have any questions, contact Irene Sanders - sanders@leadershipjohnscreek.com.

Spring Semester Parking at Centennial 
The visitor parking has been relocated to our front parking lot, just to the right of the new atrium. All entrance to the building during the school day will be in that area. The stadium parking lot will exclusively be for staff parking only.
 
Finally, student parking has been slightly updated to give more students the opportunity to park and drive on campus. If you have a student that is driving to school, please be sure that he/she knows where to park and that parking is in a legal area. Illegal on campus parking (parking up on a curb, sidewalk, fire lane, etc) will result in potential fines, forfeiture of parking privileges, and further disciplinary action as warranted. Students have received this information via email, through announcements, and it can also be found on our website.
 
Students can park in the following areas:
  • Band parking lot (formerly "B" Lot)
  • Front Parking lot (to the left of the new atrium)
  • Far right row near visitor parking (adjacent to garden classroom area)
Selected students will also be parking by the wrestling building near the visitor stands and concession stands in the stadium. This was opened due to increased demand for parking 2nd semester and is only for students with a designated sticker. Please note, if cars are still parked in that area after an athletic event has begun they may be locked in until the event is completed.
Parents: Here are 2 ways that you can help to raise our School Report Card (CCRPI) score:
 
#1 - take the School Climate Survey
Parents: just by taking this survey, you help to raise our school's report card  rating.
Each school receives a School Climate Star Rating (an important part of the CCRPI score
or how our school is graded) and we need your input. Please take a brief moment (less than 5 minutes) and fill out the   Georgia Parent Survey. We want to hear how Centennial is doing!
 
The Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. You may complete the survey using your personal  computer, smartphone or tablet .
Survey responses are anonymous.

#2 - schedule family vacations when school is not in session
Every student that has more than 6 missed days of school (including excused absences) counts against our school report card score. When your child is not sick, please make sure that you are sending them to school. Attendance at school is one of the greatest factors of student success!

International Skills Diploma Seal - many Centennial 2017 Seniors are applying for this. Do not miss out!

Last year Centennial was approved to award the International Skills Diploma Seal to qualifying seniors.

Why this Diploma Seal?
According to the Georgia Department of Education, who is awarding the ISDS, they believe that in today's global marketplace, it is important for students to acquire the interdisciplinary skills they need to be globally competent and competitive. The International Skills Diploma Seal is awarded to graduating high school students who complete an international education curriculum and engage in extracurricular activities and experiences that foster the achievement of global competencies. It is a signal to employers and higher education institutions that a student is prepared to participate in the global economy.

You can review the complete information about the International Skills Diploma Seal at:

If you are a senior who is interested in pursuing this Diploma Seal, please complete the intent form and submit it to Dr. Glymph by February 1st, 2017 in the AP Office. Then all coursework credits will be verified by the counselors. Once all information is verified, students will be notified and invited to attend the informational meeting about the Capstone Presentation.

The Capstone Presentation is a student reflection on his/her cross-cultural experiences, learned international skills, and competencies. Students will have a choice for the presentation format (video, presentation, performance, journal reading). The Capstone Presentation will take place on March 22nd, 2017 in front of the International Skills Diploma Seal Committee.

A list of the final International Skills Diploma Seal Candidates will be submitted to the GA DOE in April of 2017. Awarded International Skills Diploma Seals will be distributed during the Centennial High School Graduation Ceremony.

PTSA in Action
Exceptional Children and Art!
Making art out of clay can be very fun and rewarding!  So, on   December 2nd  nine CBI students and five peer facilitators spent the afternoon at Roswell's Fouts Road Art Center.  We made several items including candy dishes and holiday ornaments. A few days later they were ready to paint and be fired.  The results were perfect for holiday gift-giving. The best thing that we made though, were some new friendships!

A BIG THANKS TO THE CENTENNIAL HS FAMILY
This year's Caring & Sharing Fundraiser exceeded expectations,  allowing us to assist many Centennial families over the holidays.  Everyone was so generous with their donations in the carpool line, at football games, or even on-line.  Equally impressive were the volunteers who braved the cold to collect donations, helped with signage and publicity, and set-up the online donation webpage.  Thanks again!

Accident Avoidance Workshops

The Accident Avoidance Workshops reduce the likelihood of your student crashing by more than 75%. So you decide ... which training do YOU want? The State's "absolute minimum requirements" haven't changed in 30 years, but driving has, and so have our roads. We think your child deserves a fighting chance on today's roads, and we hope you will want to give them the tools they will need to survive in today's world.
 
Don't take our word, here is what parents just like you have to say about the Workshops.
 
"You think you know what this program is ... but you don't.  This has teeth." -D. Kliewer; Parent
"There's a reason this is the highest-ranked program in the U.S.  You can't understand until you take it." -D. Aaze; Parent
"I had no idea there was a program like this out there.  No kid of mine will ever go without it." -C. Abernathy; Parent
"My son needed to be knocked down a few pegs.  Mission accomplished." -J. Wright; Parent
 
The Workshops are coming back to Centennial High School this February and spaces will go fast. Don't delay, sign up today.   Click here  for more information and for a complete schedule, or call  770-262-7009 .  If you are ready to register you may  click here .

Remember to Use your Publix Scan Cards!

Do you know that the CHS PTSA has received over $14,000 from Publix over the years?!  That is a lot of money - and it takes no effort at all.  Just use your scan card every time that you make a purchase at Publix.  If you do not have a scan card, you can get one at the front desk.  They are available throughout the school year.  You or your student can pick up extra cards for grandparents, friends and neighbors to use.  Everyone buys groceries, and having these cards scanned when you shop at Publix is an easy way to help CHS PTSA!
