  • Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

      

    Center School is a primary building with students in kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade. We currently have five kindergarten classrooms, five 1st grade classrooms, five 2nd grade classrooms, and four multi-needs classrooms. At Center School, we focus on providing a well-rounded education for our students.  This year, we will continue using the reading and writing workshop model. This model of teaching allows the teachers to focus instruction on individual students’ needs and abilities. We also use Words Their Way as a method for teaching spelling and word patterns. Students will continue to learn math through the Envisions math program, along with other supplementary materials that will engage them in hands-on learning and math reasoning. We also explore social studies and science using various non-fiction reading materials and by providing hands-on learning experiences. 

    Center School is a PBIS school. While focusing on creating the love for learning, we also promote positive behaviors and good character with our Center Dolphins. Students participate in monthly activities that help to foster kindness and good character.   

    During this next school year, the theme for Center will be Under the Sea Center, where we will be building a great environment for all students and staff to enjoy! Throughout the entire year, students will be challenged to work together to build a great school filled with kindness, hard work, and a love for learning!  We will work together to form a Center team, building the best students, friends, and classmates. 

    I look forward to a year filled with creating wonderful memories with our Center students, staff, and families.
