On Wednesday, March 9, the Centennial School Board approved a new wellness policy created by the district's Wellness Committee. Some policy highlights are:
Hello everyone. Katie Cadigan had to leave her position as HAS Coordinator. Thanks for ALL your hard work Katie! I have taken over her position and am excited to continue her work.
A bit about me: I have worked for Centennial School District since 2005, teaching for two years at Centennial Learning Center as the Health and PE teacher and working as an Educational Assistant. I graduated from Evergreen State College in Community Health and Education, and went on to Concordia University and received a Masters In Art of Teaching with an endorsement in PE and Health. My health secrets are northwest fruit (especially blueberries with soymilk), riding my bike, and I take a boxing class at Dishman Community Center. I believe that when we feel good, we are happy, productive, caring people. I want healthy environments and access to health resources to be a way of life for everyone.
Stay tuned for updates, info, resources, and news!
