The mission of CES is to provide opportunities for knowledge to all students while nurturing the skills necessary for students to become life-long learners and better understand their role as a citizen.

 A Note From the Principal:

jill cesMy name is Jill Hunt!  I  am the principal of Centerville Elementary School!  I am very excited to begin my second year as principal at CES!  We had a fabulous year last year and I know this year we will only improve!  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!  The best is yet to come this year at CES!  2016-2017 will be a GREAT year!
