Centennial Parent Organization

Centennial Parent Organization (CPO) is a parent organization that works in partnership with Centennial Elementary School.  All parents are members even if you have never attended a meeting!  CPO meets monthly at 6:00 p.m. in the Centennial Community Room on the following Mondays:


     August 28                              November 27                           March 19

The goal of CPO is to assist the teachers, administrators, and parents in giving our children the best education possible here in Polo.  We strive to contribute money and parent volunteers to help achieve this goal.   We also strive to get parents involved in their kids’ education and keep them informed of important events.
