On Dec. 4 and 5, Centennial hosted its annual Winter Spectacular in the auditorium from 7:00 to 9:00.

The Winter Spectacular is a showcase of the fine arts department. The two hour long show is full of amazing performances by Centennial’s most talented. The Winter Spectacular featured Madrigals, Color Guard, Musical Theatre, Drill Team, Junior and Senior Dance Company, orchestra, and Jazz Band.
The show was full of amazing choreographed dances, beautiful musical solos, and overall enthusiasm by everyone who was involved. The Dance team choreographed a number to “Let It Go” as well as other winter classics, and the Madrigals performed classic holiday songs such as “Ding a Ding a Ding,” “Bagels and Biscuits,” “Deck the Halls in 7⁄8,” and “Jingle Bells.”

The show had a few bumps in the road, but all performances do. Overall, it was an amazing show and the passion of the performers really came through. If you didn’t get the chance to go this year, make sure to check it out next year! It gets better each year!

On October 20, Centennial students pulled into the parking lot to see writing filled parking spots that celebrated National Writing Day.  Mr. O’Brien’s Advanced Composition class arranged the event, and they were at each lunch running different writing activities. During lunch,  the Advanced Composition students had games, posters, and contests that the other students could participate in.  They asked students why they write, and the students were able to put their response on a huge poster.

In Mr. Eisenstein’s physics class, students pushed Eisenstein’s car across the small road leading to the teacher parking lot in order to apply concepts taught in the classroom to a real world setting. Students recorded measurements in order to calculate push forces exerted by the students and the friction coefficient inside of the car.

On September 18, Centennial had a dual spirit day.  The official theme was Character Day, but the seniors voted separately to have an unofficial 80’s Day.  The school was filled with a mix of TV characters, movie characters, and 80’s characters.  Throughout the building, 80’s music floated down the hallway from where it was blaring from the multiple boom boxes around the school.
