Most of Centennial’s clubs had their own booths, some selling cultural cuisine and others having carnival games. It was a fantastic sight seeing all different groups of people coming together to show their support for their peers and for the school.

The carnival had a great turnout and students are already looking forward to next year’s event.

Today, February 21, Centennial students participated in a walkout to protest gun control policies.  Many students spoke their minds to the student body advocating for change.  Chants broke out as many people are very passionate about this subject.

The school was open to the students expressing their beliefs.  The walkout was done in an orderly way and all views were respected.

Some were not expecting a big turn out, but many joined in support of change.

“The event displayed a great sense of unity among Centennial students” says sophomore Lien Hoang.

The walkout falls on the one-week anniversary of the school shooting that happened in Parkland, Florida.

Carlsen is a professional improviser herself, and believes improvised acting is fun because you get to interact with the audience.

Words: Jordyn Blanken

The Soaring Steppers is Centennial’s first step team.  The students work hard together on bettering each other while also performing at basketball games during halftime.  The students also provide a safe place for boys and girls to talk and to step.

Step is a form of percussive dance in which the participant’s entire body is used as an instrument to produce complex rhythms.

The Soaring Steppers meet during Eagle Time and after school on Tuesdays-Thursdays in Mrs. Moody’s room (906). The Soaring Steppers are looking for boys and girls that have, according to Moody, “…dedication, hard work, perseverance, and a positive attitude.”

Tryouts to join the team will be held in October.  Come out and join the team!  The student president is Sarah Fakeye.
