Back to School!

School starts back Thursday, August 1st, and with a new school year comes the need for new school supplies. The following list  names the supplies your child needs to be prepared for class. Don't forget to come see us at Open House on Sunday, July 28th from 2:00 to 4:00! It is the best time to meet your teacher and go ahead and grab your paperwork.
 
Reminder: Tax free weekend is July 26-28, 2019.
 

Thank you, UTrust!!

 Utrust was kind enough to sponsor Centennial's fifth graders to go visit two historical Civil War sites in Franklin, TN: The Carter House and the Carnton Plantation. The students had a great time and learned loads about how the Civil War and the Battle of Franklin influenced the growth and development of Middle Tennessee. We want to express a huge thank you to UTrust and encourage others to visit these locations.
