Holiday Treat Day - Yummy Donations Needed for Tuesday, December 18

Greetings - It is a tradition for the PTSA to provide treats for the Century staff one day during the holidays.  Holiday Treat Day will be Tuesday, December 18th and we are in need of generous families to provide cookies, bars, fruit or candy (gluten free options are appreciated) to show gratitude and spread "Holiday Cheer"  to the Century staff.

Treats can be dropped off between 7:30 and 8:15 A.M.  in the circle in front of the main entrance.  Volunteers will be there to take the treats from your car and bring them into the building.  We are also in need of volunteers that morning to help with taking the dropped off treats into the building.

Please click the link below to sign up to provide treats and/or help transport the treats into the lounge arranging them for the staff to enjoy.


Thank you for your generosity,
Century PTSA

Century Parking Lot

Century Families,

Winter has arrived early!  With that, please use extra caution, more patience and understanding in the parking lot during drop-off and pick-up times.  The parking lot can be a stressful time if we allow it to be.  Overall, I continue to be impressed with the orderly nature of all that use our parking lot.  Congestion can lead to frustration, which can lead to rash decisions.  At CHS, this is a very, very rare occurrence and I thank you very much for your continued patience and focus on safety.

Much appreciation,
Chris Fogarty
Principal

Senior Photos and Quotes Due to Yearbook - December 10

Senior Photos - Deadline - December 10, 2018
All senior photos should be sent via email to centuryhighschoolmnyearbook@gmail.com
All electronic photos should be in jpeg format.
You may turn in a scanned copy of your photo if that is the only option - but as a warning, the quality will not be as good as a photo sent via email.

Senior Quote - Deadline - December 10, 2018
Senior quotes can be no longer than 100 characters. If your quote exceeds this limit we will ask you to resubmit. Please do not attempt to turn in an inappropriate quote.

NOTE: If you do not receive a "thank you, we've received your message" email, that means we did not receive your photo, quote or question. Please keep this last point in mind. We are not responsible for photos that are not published in the yearbook because they were not received. Sometimes things go wrong and emails don't make it to us, please make sure you've gotten a response.

Questions, quotes, senior photos, or any other concerns can be sent directly to centuryhighschoolmnyearbook@gmail.com

Century Parents


We believe that pepper spray, or something similar, was discharged inside of Century High School. Due to precautions related to the smell of this spray, we are evacuating the building. Rochester Fire Department will be evaluating the situation and students and staff will return once we receive the "all clear" from the Fire Department. 

All staff and students are safe.

We appreciate your patience and partnership in keeping our students and staff safe.

Sincerely,
Chris Fogarty
Principal
