As the principal of Central Elementary School, I believe that the most important role on the campus is to make sure that we have established a safe learning environment for all students.  At Central School, we have been proactive in being trained and utilizing the Positive Behavior Intervention System.  There is a proactive system in place for setting the guideline expectations for student behavior on the school campus.  Examples of the PBIS system include:
  • playground training days at the beginning of each school year.
  • our Wolf Rights for all students and staff on the campus.
  • student expectations for all areas on the school campus.
  • student expectation passport day activity that occurs in the 2nd semester of the school year.
  • a system for students to inform the site administrators of any concerns.
  • a district hot-line available for parents and students to report any needs.

Also, as the principal on the campus, I understand the importance of establishing a high quality educational system that meets the needs of all students.  As a teaching staff, we  continue to build our skills and knowledge around constructivist, project based, and inquiry learning methods; thus, all students are being afforded the following:

  • a safe learning environment where educational risks can be taken.
  • opportunities to apply the knowledge learned to real world applications.
  • learn to work collaboratively with others.
  • learn to work independently.
  • learn to communicate effectively.
  • learn to construct their own ideas.
  • to learn by doing.
  • to be creative. 
As we continue to move down the common core educational path, as defined for us by the federal government, it is my responsibility and goal to provide all students with an education that meets the rigor of the common core standards and the goals of 21st Century learning.  Education is moving in an exciting direction, and I am proud to be the leader of a great learning community.
