The staff at Central Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2016-2017 school year. We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student. We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students. Learning involves hard work by the teacher, the parent, the student, and the principal.
At Central, we value and challenge each student and provide opportunities for success. Instruction is based on the Indiana Academic Standards. We are constantly employing research-based, student-centered programs and instructional strategies to facilitate the highest level of student achievement, such as whole-brain teaching and mastery learning. We are committed to providing every child with a quality 21st century education.
Research and experience shows us that parent/guardian involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school. To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:
- Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
- Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
- Monitor your child’s homework and progress regularly.
- Expect and support positive behavior at school.
- Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.
In addition, there are numerous volunteer opportunities in which we welcome you to become involved at Central Elementary. Volunteers make a tremendous positive impact and enrich our educational program.Your child’s teacher and our Parent-School Organization (PSO) will provide more information as we progress through the school year. Please consider supporting our school in this way.
I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at (219)763-8015.
