It is my pleasure to welcome you to Central Elementary!  Our commitment at Central Elementary School is to provide a safe, nurturing and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.


At Central, we are committed to providing our students with positive learning experiences through a challenging academic program that will prepare students for an ever-changing world.  We inspire and motivate students to achieve their fullest potential in order to be successful today and be prepared for tomorrow.


We believe that working together and maintaining open lines of communication help make the home-school connection a successful part of our students' education.  We encourage family and community participation in all classroom and school-wide programs.


At Central Elementary School we aspire to prepare and motivate our students by instilling in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and compassion. We are both a PBIS school and Trauma Informed School. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.  We focus on students’ social emotional learning in addition to their academic growth.  We believe that before students can be successful academically, that they must be successful socially and emotionally.


Central Elementary School is dedicated to the intellectual, personal, social, and physical health of our students. Our highly qualified staff recognizes the value of professional development in order to rigorously challenge students. Our teaching practices are both reflective and responsive to the needs of our students. Through diversified experiences, our students discover their potential, achieve readiness for college and careers, and succeed in a safe and caring environment.

I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached at 596-4386 or [email protected].  I am honored to serve as your principal at Central Elementary School!
