Welcome to Center School!

Our beautiful building serves as home to children in grades four and five. The Center School community is committed to ensuring every child is continually engaged in innovative and rewarding learning experiences. While students are moving through a transitional time in their education, we create an environment where students are embraced and challenged to grow as learners. It continues to be an honor and a joy to serve as the building principal in this community. I look forward to working with a talented group of professionals who aim to bring out the best in each and every student.

In the 2019-20 school year, Center School is excited to continue our work with the Profile of a Graduate, instilling empathy, creativity, adaptability, community, and curiosity in our learners each and every day. These dispositions will be actively reflected and embedded in the culture, instruction, and assessment in every classroom. We aim to meet the needs of all learners through personalized instructional practices that provide and support all students with rigorous learning opportunities. Students and educators will individually and collaboratively examine evidence of learning to set goals that will move our students and our building forward!

Social-emotional learning is an integral part of supporting our students’ development. Center School students have an opportunity to showcase their “Lion Pride” on a daily basis. Our four core values, be respectful, be open-hearted, be adventurous, and be responsible, are defined and on display throughout all areas of our building. Through the implementation of the Second Step curriculum, targeted social-emotional learning equips students with strategies and skills to manage their emotions and build positive relationships.

The support of the PTO has been instrumental in providing quality experiences for our students. Please take some time to browse their informative website www.ehepto.com. I look forward to creating and continuing the partnership with each family member, and community member to provide the best possible education for the children of Center School. We appreciate and respect that our parents share what is most precious to them--their children. That partnership and trust is critical to the success of Center School!
