Centennial Middle School Parent Support Organization
Meet your 2017/2018 CMS PSO Officers:
~My name is Kris Cardille and I am the current 2017/18 CMS PSO President and my favorite thing is planning the Staff Appreciation Events! I live in Blaine with my husband, Dan, 8th grade son, Zach and furbaby, Buster. When not in the middle school I am a substitute teacher at the elementary schools in Centennial and in the spring I am an assistant softball coach at the high school. I love to travel, do crafts, take pictures, scrapbook, and go to Zach’s activities. Zach is involved in football, basketball and band at the middle school. The PSO is so much more than fundraising. For me the PSO has been an easy way to meet parents and teachers and make some lifelong friends along the way.
~Hello. I'm Judie Offerdahl your current 2017/2018 CMS PSO Vice President. I currently have an 8th grader, Ella, at CMS. My youngest will be attending CMS next year as a 6th grader. It's been great to get to know some of you through Ella's participation on the swim team, the plays and musicals and band. When I'm not enjoying time with my family or working as a first grade teacher at a neighboring district, I enjoy travelling, reading, running, cheering on the Seattle Seahawks, and eating chocolate. I look forward to helping the PSO be the best it can be.
~Hi! I am Allison Iwan and your 2017/2018 CMS PSO Treasurer. My husband, Chris, and I have two tots, Max (age 19) and Isabelle (age 13), and two pups, Oscar and Lulu. By day, I am a Research Coordinator at the University of Minnesota, School of Public Health. My hobbies include quilting, puzzles, food, and working out. I'm looking forward to having fun with the CMS community as we "Help Grow People" together!
~Hi, my name is Gail Willenbring and the current 2017/2018 CMS PSO Secretary. I live in Circle Pines with my husband Scott, our 8th grader Caitlin, and our Ragdoll cat Sapphire. I am a 25 year employee at 3M working as an IT Security Analyst. In my off time, I enjoy travelling, scrapbooking/crafting, reading, yoga, church activities, and getting together with family and friends. I’m excited to see what the PSO can accomplish this school year and where it can take us into the future!
~Hello. I am Josh Schendel Technology Support for CMS PSO. I have twin 6th graders at CMS and one 9th grader at CHS. I also have one very active 2 year old. My time is split between all 4 children and my day job. I am excited to support CMS PSO.
Hi! My name is Tracy Schendel and I am a member of the CMS PSO. This is my first year on the CMS PSO as my son and daughter are both in 6th grade. I live in Lino Lakes with my husband and fellow member, Josh, and my children Alex (14), Kellen (12), Shea (12), and Asher (2). I'm currently a stay-home mom but I am also a Special Education teacher and hope to return to the classroom when my youngest is in school. I'm excited to be a part of the CMS PSO and look forward to working with this fun group on some great projects to help all of our middle school families and the CMS community as a whole
The Centennial Middle School Parent Support Organization operates with no membership fee!
All CMS staff and all parents with at least one child enrolled at CMS are voting members with one vote per household.
Join us monthly at 7:30am on the second Monday each month for our membership meetings, provide feedback and participate, and see your ideas put into action. We meet at the Caribou in Lino Lakes (across from Target).
