Hello Parents,
      First off, let me say welcome. I am excited for the new year. My name is Mrs. Janzen and I have been teaching for 4 years. This is my 2nd year teaching Kindergarten and my 2nd year here at Centennial. I graduated from UCO and began teaching at Destiny Christian in Pre-K. I was also the Varsity head coach for the girls basketball team where I won back to back State Championships and Runner-up at Nationals in Pennsylvania. I am a huge sports fan and my favorite team is the St. Louis Cardinals. I have 2 kids living at home (5 total) and 4 grandkids. I love teaching and I LOVE Centennial Elementary!
      Kindergarten is such a fun time and we learn so much in a year. This month, we are already diving into letters and sight words. We will also be learning nursery rhymes. I can't wait to see all of them grow. I believe that this will be an amazing year and I can't wait to get started. 
News you can Use:
For the month of March, our Kinders are learning so many new things. We are still writing and getting much better at it. We start Dr. Seuss the first week of March and this is always fo much fun for our kids and our staff. We are doing a lot of prepping and reviewing for our report cards which will come out after spring break. I have been blown away by how much they have improved since the very first day.
