    May 30th update


    Senior Slideshow


    May 17th update

    Use Senior Slideshow submission link (until Noon on May 30th) to send in pictures for the Senior slideshow. Please use the following guidelines when submitting a picture. Graduation is a formal event. Therefore, the senior picture should be a professional-looking digital picture that is in color with both eyes visible. Additionally, the picture needs to include your whole head and has not been distorted in any way. Since it is a portrait, there cannot be anyone else in the picture and no props, pets etc. Students are to follow all school rules, including the dress code in the portrait.  If the picture is too dark, or does not follow the guidelines, then it will not be used and your most recent school picture will be used instead. This picture will also be used in the yearbook and presented as a portrait (vertically aligned photo). We reserve the right to zoom in on full body photos. Plans and photos may also be emailed to Mr. Leatherwood at dleather@columbus.k12.oh.us

    A copy of the Senior Slideshow will play at graduation rehearsal on Tuesday May 30th.

    Diploma Presentation --- We make every effort to allow our students to personalize their graduation experience by choosing a Centennial staff member (from all four years of high school, including office staff) to award them their diploma.  If you do not select anyone then Ms. Porta will award you your diploma.

    You should ask the Centennial staff member if they would be willing to give you your diploma at graduation.  You may have a back up presenter in case a situation arises and the staff member is unavailable. Please indicate who you would like to present your diploma by filling out the following Google form. https://forms.gle/etDzds1fbvUwiWHX8
