Whether our students are from the United States, Canada, Mexico or Japan, they have one thing in common. They are learning how to be influential citizens in this world and we are lucky to have them.

This week, Centennial students are participating in Multi-Cultural Week to celebrate their heritage and cultural diversity. The school is having activities during the week, and on Friday, November 17, 2017, students are encouraged to wear a shirt from another country, a jersey representing an international team or an outfit representing their culture.

However, the best way our students are celebrating Multi-Cultural Week is by helping another country. Centennial students are hosting a fundraiser to help schools in Puerto Rico that don’t have electrical power. Helping Puerto Rico schools allow our students to learn more about what is happening in the world and how they can help. Our diversity is something to celebrate and the students are excited to help those in need.

Centennial students want to raise enough money to fund five gas generators. Each generator costs approximately $680.00, which means five generators will total $3,400. This goal is possible if each student gives $2.00-$3.00! Help kids in Puerto Rico have an educational experience like our kids in Provo and donate before the end of the week.

You can donate online at or in the Centennial Middle School main office during the school day. Cash is accepted and checks can be made out to “Vivint Gives Back.”

Our students continue to amaze us each day as they celebrate our differences and willingly take a stand to help those in need.
