We Welcome our New Principal - Mrs. Sienkowski!

Mrs. Sienkowski will be recommended as our new principal at Thursday's school board meeting. She wanted to share the following message with you:

Dear Central Families,

I am thrilled to become a part of the Central family as your new principal. I have been teaching for 16 years now. Over the past 6 years I taught 6th grade Language Arts at Ben Franklin Middle School. Prior to that, I taught both 4th and 5th grades at Central, so I really feel like I am coming back home! I am also a Central parent, as my son, Sam, will be a 3rd grader. I appreciate what a wonderful, caring place Central is and I look forward to getting to know you and your children and ensuring there is a smooth transition as you get to know me. Please feel free to contact me any time.


Mrs. Sienkowski

Box Top Challenge

Mrs. Doran's first grade class won the Box Top Challenge by a landslide! The class was rewarded with an extra recess which the kids just LOVED! Thank you to all students and parents who sent in Box Tops. We collected over $700 worth which will be used to directly impact our students! A big thank you to Mrs. Parks and Mrs. Stone for helping count out all of our box tops!!!
