Principal's Message

  • Hello Bulldog Families,


    I want to welcome everyone to the 2020-21 school year. I am deeply honored to be the principal at Centennial High School. Working with all of you amazing students, families, staff and community members is truly fulfilling. Being able to build on the excellence and tradition that Centennial has built over 140 years of educating Puebloans is both humbling and challenging. I am excited to introduce new generations to the excellence and honor of the Bulldog way!

    This year has been like no other in history. It has interrupted learning for our students and has changed how we function as a community. It is important for you to know we are working hard to engage and connect students with Centennial High School. We are diligently working to prepare for the safe return of our students, so we can continue rigorous learning, whether it is delivered in person or by virtual instruction. Please know we strive to live up to our school vision which states, “ Building upon our tradition of excellence, Centennial High School will inspire a passion for rigorous learning to prepare students to thrive in an ever-changing world.” In the effort to prepare all of us to live this vision, I want to challenge everyone to exercise flexibility, adaptability, and a positive attitude as we continue to face the uncertainties related to the Covid pandemic.

    Whether this is your first year or your last year attending Centennial, our goals remain the same: provide you with a safe learning environment, provide rigorous learning opportunities, and prepare you to live a fulfilling life. Welcome back Bulldogs! I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you this year!
