One of our school district goals is to increase expectations for student reading. In Centennial School District, we enthusiastically encourage our students to read in and out of school all yearlong. We do this because we know that reading is a critical skill that opens doors to opportunities for our youngsters.
The Suggested Reading Lists can serve as a guide:

Participation in Centennial's voluntary SIZZLING SUMMER READING program is a wonderful way for students to develop lifetime reading habits. Please join us in encouraging your child to read daily during the summer. Below are a few guidelines to follow in order to participate fully in the program.
- Students are to read books not previously read.
- Parental involvement in book selection is encouraged.
- When a book is completed, the reader fills out the appropriate information.
- Parents and guardians sign the response form and return it to the child's teacher in September.
- Most importantly, talk about the books your child is reading, ask questions, and discuss new words.
Participants will be recognized in school with certificates and with special displays.
Thank you for your support of Centennial's expectations for student reading. By working together, we will help assure high achievement on the part of our students.
Middle and High Schools
Our school district continually strives to increase expectations for student reading. We know reading is a critical skill that opens doors to opportunities for our youngsters. Therefore, families and teachers working collaboratively to encourage independent reading for our students is paramount to encourage students’ success. Although our middle and high schools do not require summer reading we strongly encourage students to read throughout the year.
