A Note From the Principal:

Hello!  My name is Jill Hunt and I want to welcome you to the Centerville Elementary School website.  Thank you for stopping by our website to see the neat and exciting things we are doing at CES.  Check back with us as we will be updating the website frequently this year.  I am proud to be the principal of this great school where I, myself,  went to elementary school back in the day.  I enjoyed teaching here for three years and I am happy to be back after being an assistant principal at East Hickman Intermediate.  Elementary school aged children and early childhood education is my passion.  I am thrilled to be here and hopefully will inspire a love of learning in each and every child at CES.

Here at CES we are partnering with our sister school, Centerville Intermediate,  to help bridge the gap between the two schools and make the transition between elementary and intermediate smoother.  Grade level teachers at Centerville Elementary have met and come up with Grade Level Goals for each grade level in the areas of behavior, math, and reading to help students reach their fullest potential.  Teachers created these goals with preparation for the Centerville Intermediate School rigor in mind and with teaching students to read at the forefront.  Our goal is to have every student reading on grade level by the time they leave 2nd grade.  Our second goal which is of equal importance is to instill a love of school in each and every students’ heart!  Together with the help and support of you our parents we believe we can attain these goals.

Jill Hunt

Positive Behavior Rally

Our 3rd PBS Rally was a hit!!  Students that have had great behavior and have shown responsibility by doing their homework enjoyed a great movie with popcorn in the gym on the big screen!  Our afternoon included our PBS Rally with staff/faculty games, students of the month announcements and teacher of the month announcement!  First grade and Second grade teachers were challenged in a relay, with First Grade teachers winning!  The losing team captain had to “drink” a Thanksgiving Feast.  Mr. John West took one for the team!!  You’re a good sport, Mr. John!  We love you at CES!!

Centerville Elementary uses a positive behavior system along with a behavior passport that will allow students to earn the opportunity to attend scheduled reward days.   Each experience will be different to help promote students wish to obtain the reward.  The behavior passport also includes homework responsibilities, as well, and  students must have no more than 3 homework marks, and no more than 7 behavior marks in order to attend the reward day activity.
