About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Shannon Ritter, Principal


Centennial Elementary School first opened its doors in 1989. Located in the southeast corner of Olympia, we serve students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade.

In September of 2018, a two-story intermediate building was completed and is home to our 4th and 5th grade students. The main building modernization is close to being completed. The original footprint for the school remains the same with the addition of a second gym, a new entrance to the building, a re-designed drop-off area and parking lot. The three main pod areas are restructured to allow for small group intervention and extensions . The library received a face lift as well in order to better serve the needs of our students. The changes to the library include an enhanced focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Our closely-knit community takes great pride in Centennial Elementary, which is well known for its parent involvement, academic rigor, music and choir programs, high volunteer rates and an experienced, talented and caring staff. The mission statement of Centennial Elementary School is to ensure high levels of learning for all. Our vision is to strive to promote a curiosity for learning. All staff members work collaboratively to provide meaningful learning opportunities for all students, with an emphasis on academic achievement and social/emotional growth.

Community members and parents are encouraged to come in and lend a hand. Parents may become involved with the school through volunteering or by joining the active Booster Club. A strong partnership with the families and community enhances the academic and social opportunities for students at Centennial.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.
 
Due to pandemic-related school closures, 2019-20 MAP assessment data is not available.
