Centerville's Canned Food Drive is on!  Merit Club challenges all first period classes to collect an average of 3 donations per person in the room. If your first period class meets the challenge, there is a prize in store for all winning classes.  Donations must be non-perishable.  They can be canned, boxed, or packaged food.  Greatly appreciated items include pasta, tuna, cereal, soups, and beans, but all of your donations are appreciated.  All items will be donated to the TriCity Volunteers, who will in turn dispense them to our neighbors in need.  Please help if you CAN!


Holiday Fun Run is coming.  Students, don't miss out on the opportunity to run with some of your favorite holiday characters:  Olaf, angels, reindeer, turkeys, and maybe even the BIG Guy of the holiday season.  Sign up at F3 at lunch.  There will be about 60 prizes that will be awarded, and to win, all you have to do is signup and complete the run...even the last place runner MIGHT win a prize.  Special prizes for the first place finishers.  We only allow about 200 runners, so sign up ASAP.  Cost is 50 cents.

Centerville Mustangs- It is very important that we all pitch in and take care of our campus, but sadly students are not throwing their garbage out after eating at lunch. Not only is this harmful to our campus and environment, it is a burden to our hardworking staff that have to pick up after you. Students are no longer allowed to eat on the blacktop at all. If you eat on the blacktop, you will be asked to move. If you are caught eating on the blacktop, littering, leaving your garbage behind, or throwing any food or drink item, you will get a lunch detention or lunchtime campus cleanup. You may still continue eating at the lunch tables, in the gym, on the side of the gym outside, in the game room (when open), and between the F-G wings.


Yearbook:  You can order a yearbook online at (school code is  703282). With the early bird discount (offered until Dec. 31st), the cost is $30. After that, the price will go up to $35.


Did you know that it is a California state law that anyone aged 18 and under operating a bicycle, scooter or skateboard, or using roller skates/blades must legally wear a bicycle helmet.  Violating the state’s bicycle helmet laws can result in a fine up to $25.  It has been noticed that several students are not wearing a helmet.


Students, it really helps our traffic issues when you ride your bike or walk to school.  We just want to remind you to be extra careful and follow traffic rules.  Also, be sure to fully lock your bike.  Make sure your bike lock goes through your bike frame and also through the bike racks.  We've had some students that have experienced bike theft and we want to be sure to prevent this in the future.
