Parent Connection:

Are you a gardener or a volunteer with time for green space care? The courtyard off the lunchroom at Centennial needs helpers who can pull weeds, clean up trash and generally keep the space looking beautiful. A person handy with a saw and hammer would be helpful, too, for repair of the gazebo roof. Ideas for the courtyard are also welcome. Please send interest or questions to either teacher Mary Malloy at (the volunteer overseer of the green space) or PTSA leader Melanie Mader Paul at  

 Open House will be held Tuesday, September 11th at 6:00 pm.
