From the Principal

My name is JiPrincipal Hunt 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!

Positive Behavior System

Centerville Elementary implements a school wide behavior matrix in accordance with a positive behavior system model.  Students will be rewarded each nine weeks for exceptional behavior, attendance, and homework completion.   Obtaining a Discipline Report automatically results in a loss of the privilege for the PBS Reward Day for that time period.  The behavior passport also includes homework responsibilities. If a child does not complete his or her homework three times within a 9 week period he or she will not be able to attend the planned rewards for that period.
