From the Principal

My name is Jijill cesll Hunt!  I  am the principal of Centerville Elementary School!  I am a former Centerville Elementary School  teacher who once attended elementary school here as a student at CES.  I am thrilled to help you and your child reach their fullest potential in school all while inspiring a love of learning  from an early age.  I have high expectations for our students to set them up for success in the future.  Our primary goal is to have all students reading on or above a third grade level by the end of second grade.  I believe closely related to this is instilling a love of learning in students.  WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO LOVE LEARNING and in return LOVE SCHOOL! We believe this sets students up to be lifelong learners!   It is my hope that CES will become both you and your child’s happy place! It has a been a great school year at CES.  We are looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year!

Centerville Elementary is looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year!  Below you will find some important information about Centerville Elementary and the new school year.
