CENTENNIAL ELEMENTARY

SELF-REPORTED INDICATORS

Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.

SCHOOL-LEVEL FACTORS

Social and Emotional Well-Being

The CCC (Character and Culture) committee has been vital in establishing a safe culture where children and adults alike can thrive. Specifically, the CCC worked to create our four Tiger Traits; Kindness, Respect, Self-Aware and Persistence. These traits are taught explicitly, modeled and reinforced with positive awards. This has led to a warm and welcoming environment. In addition, the CCC takes care of adults as well. Together, they support others through potlucks, grievance gifts, baby and wedding celebrations, after school yoga and educational learning experiences. Their goal is to support through the journey of life within and without of the school walls. Our CCC has been the foundational base for Centennial. The success appears in each nook and cranny of the building as students, staff members and families feel the warmth that has become Centennial culture. It is a place that ALL can excel.

Literacy Professional Development

Literacy has been an area of focus for Centennial. All K-6 teachers are participating in LETRs training. This professional development is provided by the state and helps our teachers become literacy and language experts. Teachers are learning and deepening their understanding about the instruction needed to help students become successful readers. Professional development and literacy materials are aligned with the Science of Reading and Utah Standards.
