Can I request a teacher for the 2016-17 School Year?


Can I write a letter about the teacher I want my child to have or not have next year?

Yes, you can write a letter sharing the characteristics of the ideal teacher your star scholar needs to be successful in the classroom.

Do you take specific teacher requests?

No we do not take specific teacher requests because staffing can change at anytime and any CES staff members will meet the needs of your star scholar. Specific teacher requests will not be honored.

When is the optional letter due to Mrs. Hilliard describing the characteristics of the ideal teacher for your star scholar?

We say goodbye and hello!

At the end of the school year we will be saying goodbye to Mrs. Bryant, ELL teacher and Ms. Kasey Smith, 4th grade teacher. Mrs. Bryant will be teaching at Frederick High and Ms. Smith will be teaching at Monocacy Elementary. We wish them the very best.

Mrs. Dreda Kelley will be joining our staff effective July 1. Mrs. Kelley is currently a teacher at Brunswick Elementary. We wish everyone a great start with their new venture.

Staff for 2016-17

The last Centerville Connection will go home on June 2, 2016. In that edition, we will list our staff and their assignments for the 2016-2017 school year, as we know them at that point in time. This information, as well as teacher profiles will also be available on our school website later in the summer.

Lost and Found

Don’t forget to check our school lost and found for any missing items. All unclaimed items will be donated to charity on June 20th. Thanks.

Lunch Supplies

The PTA has graciously provided forks and spoons to our students that do not have the items in their packed lunches. The supply is getting very low so a request has been made for parents to double check the packed lunches to make sure those items are included. Thanks in advance your your assistance.

Change of Address or Moving

If you have a change of address or moved from the address we have on file at school please contact Mrs. Welch @ 240-566-0103 to share your new address. This will allow all mailed current and summer communications to reach you in a timely fashion.
