It’s been a long week for lots of reasons but this picture is just amazing. Thank you Century admin, students and staff for welcoming our Highland Rams and sharing your building with them. I may have cried when I saw this.

30+ Band and Drumline students from Century and Highland in the CHS Band room

The Century and Highland Drumline met up at CHS last night to spend some time to get to know each other and just hang out as kids. The HHS drummers have been stuck at home and feeling pretty down since their band room was lost. It was a really sweet event, Highland wanted to help Century get their equipment ready for marching band season as a thank you for sharing their school, band room and equipment. Century gave Highland a tour of the band room and showed them where to find everything they'll need while they are there. 

"This is a unique opportunity for our CHS and HHS percussionists to create more connections in their community and are looking forward to more "drummer hangs" in the future. As Highland Band alumni (2009-2013), it means a lot that we are able to help out the music students so that they are able to still have an experience in the classroom that wouldn't have been able to be done virtually, especially for those seniors."

Take Flight You Put the MORE in MORE Together

As the school year winds down, I have reflected a lot on the many accomplishments of our district. We have indeed taken flight this year!

Instructionally, we have learned to adapt in an ever-changing world of technology and yet remain committed to personal learning and interactive experiences. Academically, we strive to meet our learners' needs in our classrooms with engaging, problem solving, critical thinking and collaborative opportunities. Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities continue to flourish with numerous district, state, national and academic championships. 

As with any success, these results do not come without the preparation, drive, hard work, passion and dedication of each team member. These values are the foundation of our culture and I am fortunate to be on a team that exhibits these characteristics on a daily basis. 

In the past couple of weeks, it has been affirmed to me that our district truly embraces our motto of "More Together." In our efforts to adjust to a devastating fire, I watched, listened and facilitated multiple meetings in which representatives of administration, the Board of Trustees, Maintenance & Operations, Food Service, Transportation, Technology and a BLT came together to brainstorm ideas for solutions that capitalized on each team member's valuable input to maintain the continuity of learning and activities while making efforts to minimize disruptions. It was obvious through this experience that this type of problem solving happens continually throughout our district. Please know how much each of you are appreciated as you take part in daily discussions that have the same goals in mind. 

It is with admiration and respect that the Board and your district leadership flight team recognize all of your contributions not only this week, but the entire year. And please, enjoy a fun experience with your gift card.

Superintendent Dr. Douglas Howell
