 Central Elementary is committed to the individual needs of our students.  We are dedicated to improving student performance, teacher instruction and the enhancement of knowledge and skills required for working, living and learning in our ever-changing society.  Each day, students are encouraged to model character, integrity and maturity as they strive to grow into productive citizens.  We continuously work to meet these challenges and ensure our students are prepared for their future. 

We encourage everyone to take an active role in their child’s education by communicating regularly with their teacher, attending school events, joining the PTO and reading with your child daily. Together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish together!
