Principal’s Message

Hello and welcome to Centerton Elementary School, home of the Firecrackers. Our caring and nurturing staff provides an exemplary instructional program that focuses on student success. We strive for students to experience a well-rounded education that helps them harness their uniqueness and strengths.

Our school community is extremely active and is supported by very dedicated members. We are proud of the efforts made by our children, staff, and parents. At Centerton, we work together as a TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More. As a TEAM, we know our school will continue to excel. Centerton has been recognized as a Four Star and National Blue Ribbon School. Our staff will continue to provide distinguished curricular programming while our community supports our efforts.

Parents, families, and caregivers are the most critical part of our school success. You have a key role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come to school ready to learn. I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. Academics require practice, just like piano, sports, and dance.

There are many ways you can get involved at school. Check out our awesome PTO. They do so much to support our school programs. They provide many activities for all of our students. They also support our teachers by funding projects and activities and showing appreciation through acts of kindness. Your participation in the PTO fundraiser is a major part in making all of our activities possible.

You will find your child’s teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with them. I look forward to working together as a TEAM to educate your children. I am honored to be your Principal at Centerton and I know we are going to have an AWESOME 2016-17 school year. Fire up, Firecrackers!
