It’s Our 100th Post!

It’s hard to believe, but the Central Office Sentinel is marking 100 weeks of sharing Wildcat highlights with the community!

100 anniversary

We began by introducing our new high school weight room and celebrating the groundbreaking ceremony of our new Fine Arts Center back in the early winter of 2011. At that time, the dream of a Jenison Public Schools facility for our own musical productions, concerts and plays was no more than a pile of earth that once stood beneath the administration office. Today, we’re just weeks away from the grand opening of this long-awaited venue!

In the spring of 2012 we showed appreciation for our athletic boosters led by a committed group of parents, and we honored teachers who received “Rockstar Awards” from Josten’s Leadership team.

In the fall of 2012 we used our change to change hunger and gave coats and gifts to the community during the holiday season. We praised the students who went above and beyond in our DECA program and praised our ECC for the wonderful care given to the youngest wearing green and white.

In the spring we recognized the teachers among us who make us great and those whose greatness was recognized by the hall of fame.

Our blogging journey over the course of two years has garnered thousands of visitors and has expanded our Facebook community from a couple of hundred to over 1,200 involved parents and Wildcat fans.

But most importantly, this journey has been a weekly “cup of coffee” with you. It’s been our opportunity to tell you about the wonderful things happening in our classrooms, on our athletic fields, in our band rooms and on our stages. It’s been our opportunity to remind you that even though the world sees brick mortar, we’re all heart.

Thanks for joining us. We’re proud to open our (virtual) doors to you!

  1. Congratulations on this great communication piece. I think it’s very effective.
    Just to let you know, I “abrogated” (that’s the new journalism word for plagiarized) the Junior High balloon car story for the paper and Facebook. Nice photos!
