On Wednesday, June 3, the 2015 incoming freshmen class had their first visit to Centennial. The eighth graders went on a guided tour through Centennial and learned about the many events that occur here each year. Their guides were current Centennial students who told them about what an average day is like at Centennial and answered any questions. In the media center, the eighth graders learned about the different clubs at Centennial and what they do. The eighth graders could meet and question Centennial students who were involved in a large amount of activities.  The visitors watched a variety of performances by Centennial’s Senior Dance Color GuardCompany, Acafellas, Awkward Improv Team, and the Color Guard.
