Principal's Message

On behalf of all staff members, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Central Elementary School, home of the Central Dolphins. Happy 2017-18 school year! Each day we welcome close to 700 students, from preschool through sixth grade.

Here at Central, our instruction is based on getting all students to be college and career ready. We value and challenge each student as well as provide opportunities for success. We also encourage our students to be collaborative workers as lifelong learners. We believe in a balanced instructional program, so students will also receive instruction in fine arts, technology, and physical education.

The National School District motto is; "Children First, Relationships Matter and Whatever It Takes". We at Central embrace that thought, and here at Central School, each and every child is recognized for his/her unique contributions to our school. Students are recognized at our awards assemblies, and given the opportunity to participate in many activities.

I would like to thank you for entrusting us to your child's education. I know how important it is for a school to not only build a student's academic success, but also each child's emotional and social well-being.

Enjoy the 2017-18 school year and all the excitement it will bring! Please feel free to contact me for more information about our school.

- Vanessa Lerma, Principal
