The school is hosting the first-ever Eagle Expo tonight from 5:30 to 7 pm tonight.  The exhibition will be on replacement of Centennial’s usual Open House and will be an opportunity for students to showcase what they have been learning in their classes.

Not all classes will participating in the exhibition, but all teachers will be there. As Principal Mairi Scott-Aguirre put it, “It’s a first try. It would have been a disaster if I had all the students and teachers participate.”

This is a great opportunity to bring in more parents and members of the community so they can learn more about Centennial and what it’s all about.

Scott-Aguirre has been elaborately planning this for a while. The exhibition has deeper meaning and learning goal, “One of the elements to deeper learning is to have a real audience…puts you in a new position.”

That’s exactly the teachers’ goal; give students real-life, real-world experiences.

“I think that the first year it might have a lower showing of what we would like, but if this becomes an annual thing, then as the years go on the population will grow,” said Stacy Vanderpool.

Most teachers aren’t expecting this to be the most incredible exhibition ever, but they have their hopes high.

Social Studies teacher Edgar Brambila-Perez said, “It’s something we’ve never done before. (I’m) not sure how it’s going to go, but administration is excited to see how it goes.”
