     At Central Elementary:
    • We are Responsible
    • We are Respectful
    • We are Safe
    • We are Team Central! 
    Students will learn how to be responsible, respectful, and safe in our classrooms, along with all other areas of the school including the hallways, restrooms, cafeteria, and playground.  We acknowledge and recognize our students when they meet these expectations on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  Be sure to ask your child about how they are being responsible, respectful, and safe at Central, and help us celebrate their commitment in these areas!
