Belief Statements

  • Students learn best when actively engaged in a curriculum that incorporates a variety of activities that accommodate differences.
  • Students learn when the school community maintains high expectations to enhance children's learning experience and performance.
  • Students learn best when provided an equal opportunity to learn.
  • Student performance is enhanced by mutual respect and meaningful relationships among students, staff and parents.
  • Students learn when physical, emotional, and social needs are met.                                                          

Central Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (CEPTO) 


CEPTO actively supports the educational process at Central Elementary.  We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month in the school library.   To find out more about the calendar of events and volunteer opportunities, click on the PTO link located on the left hand column.


Dear Parents:


In an effort to support our school-wide goal of "Going Green", we have made our school handbook and all of our permission slips and forms electronic. The following information is for you to review with your child. Please print and sign the Parent Permission Slip and return to your classroom teacher. If you cannot print this form please stop in the school office and we will provide a Parent Permission Slip for you to sign.
