    Free books to families


    All students will be receiving books for them to keep and read starting Thursday, October 1. These will be delivered via buses. We want to ensure our students in PreK-5th grade are reading or being read to as much as possible. We have approximately 4,000 books being delivered to grades Pre-K through 5. These will be delivered starting Thursday and into next week, so that one to two grade levels a day can be delivered to students. Car riders can pick up their books at school starting Friday, October 2. The books will be in the bin outside the front door. 



    Our vision at Central Elementary School is to work in partnership with families and communities using a holistic approach to empower students to become responsible and engaged citizens.



    Our mission at Central Elementary School is to have a safe, orderly and effective school that provides a wholesome learning environment and strong, competitive learners.
