70 students gathered in a gym wearing matching sweatshirts

The second annual State Sweatshirt Day took place Thursday, April 18. Over 70 student-athlete and student-artists gathered in the gym to take a quick video expressing their gratitude towards the Idaho High School Activities Association and Dairy West, the sponsors of the iconic state hoodies. The Century admin team provided pizza for all that sported their state hoodie today. Emryail, a cheerleader as well as a member of the soccer and track teams said, "This hoodie reminds me of how much hard work we put in to go to state and how much it’s paid off, and going there with people I love.” So far in the 2023-2024 school year, Century has been represented at ten different state tournaments.

The administration at Century High School has challenged each class to become the class with the least amount of tardies in a trimester, with the promise of a donut and juice party at the end of the trimester. The freshmen class has earned the party for the second time this year! They celebrated with donuts, juice, music, and prizes in the gym during TA time on Monday. Each freshman's name was put into a drawing for several different prizes including a Kindle, Lululemon belt bags, Stanley water bottles, Crocs, lanyards, and more. Cheyenne B, who won a pair of Crocs in the drawing said, attendance at school is important because it helps you keep your grades up and helps you know how to act for your future. Learners with perfect attendance across all grade levels were also honored with a certificate and their own drawing for prizes, which included a pair of Apple Airpods. The administration is seeing a decline in tardies, and they are grateful for all of the learners, parents, and teachers that make attendance a priority! 

instructor leading drama students on stage

Last Thursday, April 4, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival toured to Century High School for Shakespearience, and event designed to bring Shakespeare to life in schools across the nation. The troupe performed Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream for CHS students in two different sessions. Following the performances, selected theatre students were given the opportunity to participate in a workshop hosted by the cast. Upon reflections, Bryce J, a senior, reported “This workshop was very helpful and informative. Not only did we learn about theatre, we learned about ourselves. It was an honor to participate!” Shakespearience is an annual event made possible by the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, the CHS English department, and the CHS theatre department. 

Female student looking at books

Thanks to a grant written by Kathryn Luker at the Marshall Public Library, every CHS student has been gifted a brand new book to keep! With over 10 different novels to choose from, the collection had a variety of genres and writing styles. Students with an English class this trimester had the opportunity to pick out their book during class, and anyone without English this trimester was able to choose their book during lunch each day last week. Thank you again, Ms. Luker for your generosity and thoughtfulness! 

female student signing certificate

97 seniors were recognized at the second annual ISU Academic Signing Day on March 13, 2024. The seniors that earned scholarships to ISU were invited to sign a certificate, pick out Bengal swag, and pick up some free pizza! This group of ISU-bound seniors brought in $448,500 in scholarships, with 19 of those students being Presidential Scholarships! Congrats Class of 2024!

A group of performers on stage with ocean scene

Performances of Century High School's production of Spongebob the Musical were held March 7, 8, 9, and 11th. The show was a big hit across the community, with several performances sold out. Will Leavitt, who played the role of Spongebob, said, "It was really satisfying being able to work over the last few months with Bonman and the cast and crew to bring justice to the script. On top of that, to see the community love it is all an actor can ask for." The cast and crew have been working hard every day after school, and most weekends since the initial auditions in December to make the production outstanding. 

The production was adjudicated one evening by a professional with the Patty Duke Awards. If selected, the cast and crew of this production will have the opportunity to travel to Boise in May to attend the Patty Duke Awards, perform a number from the show, and participate in a workshop. The leads may even be eligible to audition further, and if selected, travel to New York City for more workshops and award opportunities (the Jimmy Awards). Last year, Qai Gerber, a Century High School Class of 2023 graduate, was one of few Idaho students selected to participate in the week-long New York City adventure. 

Congratulations to directors Ted Bonman and Shawn Ruth, and the cast and crew of Spongebob the Musical!

Enforcing Attendance and Tardies

Bell Schedule

While we certainly want out learner to be in school everyday, some amount of flexibility is necessary as we do not want to spread disease. If you are ill, please stay home until you no longer have a fever. You may attend school even though you do not feel "perfect". Each learner may miss up to five days per trimester. Once you surpass the five days, you may lose credit and be in a situation where you will have to "appeal" for your credit at the end of the trimester. Truancies may be issued for excessive or unexcused absences. We need you support to reinforce the importance of daily attendance and being on time. Every minute that a learner is late to class or misses class is a lost learning opportunity and disrupts the learning environment for all. We will be enforcing the following interventions for excessive tardiness including: 

  • Parent Contact
  • Periodic Tardy Sweeps
  • Lunch Detention
  • Truancies

It's a Tardy Party! Century learners competed to see which class had the least amount of tardies for the first trimester. The freshman class won and were able to attend a Tardy Party with donuts and juice for everyone. Those that had less than five absences/tardies were put into a drawing for some really cool prizes.

Qai Gerber and Payton Carter

Qai Gerber (Century High School) and Payton Carter (Highland High School) won the two Idaho nominations for the Jimmy Awards in New York City. Sponsored and fully funded by The Broadway League, both students were flown to NYC for 9 days where they worked closely with Broadway professionals on the Juilliard campus in all three areas of acting, singing, and choreography. Out of 140,000 students across the country who auditioned for this program, Qai and Payton were among the 96 students who were chosen to participate. The 9-day program culminated with the actual Jimmy Awards ceremony hosted by Corbin Bleu this past Monday evening. Qai and Payton and the other 94 students performed musical numbers at the ceremony to a sold-out audience, which included several Broadway producers, at the Minskoff Theatre, home of Broadway's The Lion King. It's an incredible honor to be chosen for this program, and we couldn't be prouder of these two Pocatello theatre students!

Payton Carter and Qai Gerber

Payton Carter, a Junior at Highland High School, and Qai Gerber, a Senior at Century High School, made it to the final round, top 8 in the state, of auditions for the Idaho High School Theatre Awards. The top two students will be announced on June 9th and will get a paid trip to the Juilliard Campus in New York. There they will get to work with industry professionals for a week, with the top two students from every other regional program in the country. At the end of that week they will get to perform at the national theatre awards ceremony, the Jimmy Awards. Congratulations Payton and Qai.

Qai Gerber also received a callback audition for the Jimmy Awards in NYC. The cast will get to perform a number from their show at the big ceremony in June at the Morrison Center in Boise.

Five Century learners repainted their school rock to include HHS

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."

Jamie Burtosky, former HHS student

Ms. Martin's CHS Anthropology Class sitting on log pole fence out in the mountains

On September 28th, the BLM's Pocatello Field Office staff hosted students from Century High School's Anthropology course, which is also an early college program through Idaho State University. The field trip took place on a beautiful fall day at the petroglyph boulder display in the Indian Rocks Area of Critical Environmental Concern, where the students learned how to document an archaeological site in the field. Century teacher Erin Martin joined BLM staff including archaeologist Amy Lapp, and geographic information system specialist Brian Holmes to teach the students about filling out site forms, photographing the site, using GPS, and making feature and site sketches.
