Our Principal

Dear Comet Community,

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year.  It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you back to another great school year.  I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying all that Colorado has to offer. We are experiencing extraordinary times, and the pandemic has left us all dealing with different circumstances. Our goal at Century continues to be providing all students with the best possible education. We value our collaboration with families, and look forward to partnering with you throughout this school year, whether virtually or in person.

The year has been filled with a few changes with Century’s administration team; we currently have two assistant principals: Jennifer Viers and LaShauna Quarles, who joined our Century team from Westlake Middle, and one dean Justin Goodman, who joined us in January from Thornton Middle. The administration team is excited to work with the Comet community to provide substantial leadership that will be a seamless transition to remote learning and beyond.   

Each year brings positive change.  This includes a few additions to our staff!  

  • Halie Greenwell - 6th grade Counselor

  • Sky Hand - Creative Writing/Junior Great Books

  • Karen Spriggs - Learning Specialist

  • Barb Monroe - ParaEducator

  • Lori Badsky - ParaEducator

  • Taylor Dushane - ParaEducator

  • MacKenzie Saenz - Speech Language Pathologist 

  • Lou Doran - Learning Specialist Long Term Sub

  • Brian Dumas - In building substitute

We have had numerous facilities updates since we left in March thanks to the bond monies provided by our community. The drainage and concrete around the exterior of the building has been updated to decrease standing water in and outside of the building during heavy storms or melting snow!  We have all new wireless routers that have been installed throughout the building to connect to all of the new interactive whiteboards that have been installed.  We also have all new enhanced lateral fiber to help with connectivity. 

Back to school night will be quite different this year. We do have in-person sixth grade orientation meetings scheduled. Families of incoming sixth graders should have already received communication regarding this. If not, please call our office. For all students and parents, on August 24, 2020, we will hold a virtual back to school. Instructions, with pertinent links, will be sent to you on the 24th.

Now that we know we will be starting the school year remotely, teachers will be back attending professional development beginning tomorrow.  We will continue to keep you updated as we plan more around the first few days of school.  

  • Learning will occur synchronously, and for the most part students will follow their traditional school schedule with the time outlined in our bell schedule.  

  • We are anticipating that Wednesdays will have more of an asynchronous approach with opportunities built in for student help.  We will communicate out more information as this becomes available.  

  • We will be taking attendance for each class period daily.  If your student needs to be absent from a class period or the entire day, please contact the attendance office at 720-972-5278.

  • Students will be able to access all of their classwork using one learning management system: Schoology.

Finally, If you have not completed online check-in, please do so as soon as possible so you can view your student’s schedule when it is released in Infinite Campus.  You will not be able to view this if you have not completed online check-in.

To stay informed of all that is taking place at Century, please visit our website, Facebook page, or InstaGram account on a regular basis for current news and upcoming events. Also, continue to monitor your student’s Infinite Campus (IC) account for academics and attendance, and reach out to our staff if you have any questions.

The staff and I are eagerly waiting to welcome you to another wonderful school year and look forward to seeing families and students, either virtually or in person, very soon!  We have missed all of the students tremendously!  

It’s a great day to be a Comet!
