Century Welcome Back Letter and Theme



               965 N. Sunnyside Avenue, Clovis, CA  9361

                 “Building Pride in Every Way”

August 2018

Dear Century Parents:

 I hope all of you had a relaxing summer and are looking forward to school starting on Monday, August 20th.   For your convenience, some important information is included in this letter.

Both Century and Clovis Unified’s theme this year is “Better Together.” Our world is changing, and students need effective communication skills and excellent cooperative strategies in order to become successful. Our theme is a strong reminder that every person on campus must be a contributor and that we should combine our diverse skills and abilities in order to maximize achievement and “Build Pride in Every Way.” Century’s beach vintage style adaptation to the theme is a subtle reminder that we need to have fun, put our tiger paws in the sand, ride the waves wherever they take us, and enjoy our educational journey as a team.  Century Tigers truly are Better Together.

CLASSROOM ASSIGNMENTS: Student classroom assignments will be mailed out on August 8th to all families that have completed their on-line Annual Information Update on Parent Connect. Completion of this important information is mandatory. If you need assistance, please visit the CUSD website for instructions.

(All other mornings of the school year, students should report directly to the blacktop.)

A morning Campus Club may be offered for afternoon kindergarten if the numbers dictate the need.

FOOTBALL: There will be a Football meeting on August 20th from 3:15-4:15. (First Day of School). This is a players only meeting to discuss how to sign up online, go over expectations, and take measurements for football gear. 


All SPORTS:  Information and links concerning football, cross country, and girls’ volleyball tryouts and practices will be emailed to Century families prior to Monday of the first week of school.  We will have a limited supply of paper permission slips.  We are requesting that everyone try to fill out permission slips on their phone or on a computer.  **This year we will need to do signups for each season separately.  Last year there were some technical errors trying to sign up for the entire year. Students cannot attend practice until the online permission slip and the online information updates are complete. Our 2018-2019 Athletic schedule is posted on our website.

DRESS CODE: Clovis Unified School District’s Dress Code will be in effect with the first day of school. I know that many families are shopping for new school clothes, so here are a couple of things to remember: 1) shorts/skirts/dresses are to be no shorter than 5 inches above the top of the knee and not higher than mid-thigh, 2) shorts are to be hemmed (no cut-offs or frayed edges), 3) shoulder straps must be 2 inches wide, 4) footwear must have a fastened strap behind the heel, and 5) only Buchanan Area hats will be allowed to be worn by Buchanan Area students. If you are new to the school district or otherwise have questions about the dress code, please review the dress code policy in our Century Student/Parent Handbook which is located on the website.


NEW APP and WEBSITE: Century will not use the remind app this year.  Instead, CUSD has developed an app that works with our website to give you the most up to date information, calendar, and reminder system.  More information will be sent home soon

PARENT HANDBOOK: Our new parent handbook will be online when school starts.  There are a few changes.  Keep up with the rules and policies of the school by reading the Tiger Bulletin each week.

We’re going to have a great year,

Brion Warren
