"What are your thoughts about the virtual graduation? Are you angry? Is the district to blame?" -Steven

Dear Steven,

 

I am very sad that our 2020 seniors don’t get to have the graduation that we would usually have, but at least they can get some of their recognition and be able to walk across a stage even if it isn’t the stage at the Events Center.  I can’t express how proud I am of our graduating Class of 2020! They deserve more than we are allowed to offer at the moment but there is nothing that we have not yet tried to make it more special for them. No, I am not angry. There is nobody to be held responsible, it is a virus that is unpredictable and uncontrollable at the moment, the administrators and teachers just want to keep the students and their parents safe during these uncertain times. I hope this cleared everything up! Have a wonderful day! 

"What to do when someone does not leave you alone?"

-Brad

Dear Brad,

 

     I’m sorry that you are feeling uncomfortable due to someone not leaving you alone. There are a couple things to consider when it comes to situations like this: What is bothering you about them? Why do you feel bothered? Did they happen to sneak in your dog house and take your milk bones, or are they just wanting someone to comfort them? It can be hard to show compassion when you feel angry or annoyed and, yeah, maybe the person doesn’t go about asking for help the right way but I heard a wise troll in Frozen say, “People make bad choices if they’re mad or scared or stressed but throw a little love their way and you’ll bring out their best.” So maybe before doing anything that you might regret try to figure out more about their situation first. I hope this helped if not please feel free to send in another question. Thanks Brad!

"What have you been doing since the schools closed for COVID-19?" -David

Dear David,

 

Thank you for asking! Since we are supposed to be social distancing I have been watching all the movies that I haven’t watched yet or in a long time with a  nice cold bowl of water and milk bones, I have been waking up earlier for my daily walk to the City Park so I could beat the crowd (and get to chase the squirrels a bit). But now that Spring Break is over I have been checking my woof mail (my school email) to make sure that I am keeping up with all of my work so that I don’t fall behind. I hope this gave you a sneak peak of what I have been doing these past few weeks so far, I hope you are well and that you’re keeping up with your classes. Be safe and wash your hands! 

"How do I get my crush to like me?" -Daniel

Dear Daniel, 

 

To win your crush’s heart you should be confident! Put yourself out there! I know it can be scary, but sometimes you just need to take that leap of faith; the worst thing you could do is do nothing and spend the rest of your life wondering “What if?” Another thing you should do is try to find any common interests you both share, like, “Hey do you like Milk Bones?... Me too!” or “Do you like to go to the park and play frisbee?... Really? Me too!” The more you have in common the better. But most importantly just be yourself Daniel, don’t try to be someone you aren’t just to impress your crush, it tends to get a little hard to keep up with. I wish you the best! 

"How old are you?" -Spike 2.0

Dear Spike 2.0,

I have recently turned 147, which in dog years is 601. It's a miracle I'm still on this earth. 

"How many times a day do you brush your teeth?" -Ye

Dear Ye,

Being Centennial’s mascot, there are a lot of rules that I have to follow and always keep in mind, one of them being to always look my best and be the best dog I can be. I always brush my teeth twice a day (with the occasional Milk Bone)----once in the morning after I chase the newspaper man, and then right before I go to sleep in my dogbed for the night. Doing this keeps my teeth sparkly and my breath minty! Thank you for your question!

"Do you put mayo on your eggs?" - Douglas

Dear Douglas,

I do not support eggs and mayo going together because it is a food crime.

"What's your role in the civil rights movement?" - codpro2468

Dear codpro2468,

I had no role in and played no part in the civil rights movement due to the fact dogs only live to around 15.
