Back To School Letter

Dear Parents, Guardians & Students,                                                         

I hope you have had time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather.  School is just around the corner, and all of us at Central Elementary are anxious to see you!

I am looking forward to serving our students as Principal for a 14th year and continuing to find ways to make every student grow in education.   I am very happy to be working in a great district where all stakeholders; administrators, teachers, parents, support staff, and community members are focused on what is best for all students.

Below, you will find information pertaining to registration and a variety of other topics.  Please take some time to read through this letter.  If you have any additional questions, please contact the school. 


In Education,

Eric Stotts, Principal
