Teacher Welcome Message:
Hello Parents,
      First off, let me say welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I am excited for the new year. My name is Mrs. Janzen and I have been teaching for 5 years. This is my 4th year teaching Kindergarten 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 5 grandkids. I love teaching and I LOVE Centennial Elementary!  I am very excited for this year to begin. Go Cardinals!!!

September News:
I can't believe that we are almost through September. We have already learned so many things since school started. We are beginning to write simple words that we sound out and we are learning our sight words. We are reviewing the letters that we have learned so far which are Mm, Ss, and Aa. We have learned all about colors, Community Helpers, and apples. We also have been practicing our Nursery Rhymes. So much fun!!!
