Parents are encouraged to be involved in their teen's school community. Parents can participate at Centennial by contributing to the Parent Participation Organization (PPO) and Governing Board.
Parent Participation Organization (PPO)
The goal of the Parent Participation Organization (PPO) is to support our school by raising funds for worthwhile causes such as scholarships, Student Support Centre ( E-100), sports, and student activities and materials. In addition to organizing the Annual Artisan Craft Sale, the PPO contributes to the success of Open House, Academic Awards, and teacher appreciation.
Established by the MELS Education Act, our governing board meets monthly to discuss issues related to the school's Educational Project as well as general items, educational services, community services, and physical and financial resources. The Governing Board makes decisions that are deemed to be in the best interest of our students.The board is composed of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community representatives. Eight parents sit on the CRHS Governing Board, each for a two year term. Four parents’ term expire each year, requiring the election of four parent members on an annual basis. To be eligible, you must be the parent of a child attending CRHS during the 2013-2014 school year. Parents who are interested in active involvement in the life of the school are encouraged to run for election in the September.
