Centre Avenue Elementary School was filled with excitement during the last week of school, as students and staff participated in the school’s annual talent show. For the event, staff members performed two hits from the Beatles. Many students were also recognized with outstanding attendance for the school year. They received Perfect Attendance and Amazing Attendance awards.

Reading Partners

Students and volunteers had a great time celebrating a year of being "reading partners."   Every year at Centre Avenue School, Ms. Tener organizes this wonderful program in which students, staff and volunteers spend time each week reading and getting to know each other.  On June 21, 2019, everyone involved in the program received certificates, exchanged thank yous and cooled off with some ice pops!  Thank you to everyone involved and we can't wait for next year!

As part of their unit on the Living Environment, third graders from Centre Avenue dissected owl pellets with the assistance of students in the AP Biology class at the High School. This activity fostered an opportunity for connection between the students and allowed for an engaging learning experience.

Sixth Grade Picnic

The end-of-the-year sixth grade picnic for students of Rhame Avenue and Centre Avenue Elementary Schools was held on June 19 at the large playground area in Bay Park. The soggy weather did not dampen the spirits of the students in attendance, who enjoyed the company of their classmates while playing soccer, volleyball and baseball, as well as eating and socializing. Centre Avenue students donned their senior-designed camouflage tees and Rhame Avenue students wore their autographed Class of '19 shirts. The event served to bring both school communities together to celebrate the end of their elementary educations.
