Message from the Principal

Dear Central Families,

There is something very special about the beginning of a new school year - for the kindergartners who say good-bye and are apart from their families for the greatest number of hours ever; for the parents who have an even harder time saying that good-bye; for the friends who are reunited to tell the tales of their summer; for the teachers and principals, the custodians and office staff, the aides and assistants who have been anxiously awaiting the kids’ arrival. Whatever our age or how we fit into the equation, we all go to bed the night before the first day with a wonderful sense of excitement. A new beginning - and beginnings are everything. 

I’m delighted to continue at Central School where I have served as the assistant principal for 5 years and now as principal. I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive families. September is the time of year to reconnect with old friends and welcome new friends.

Our year is off to a wonderful start, and it’s hard to believe that the children arrived just a little over a week ago. As I walk into classrooms it is already obvious that students are busy, routines are in place and beautiful artwork is beginning to cover the walls of classrooms and hallways.

In our brief time since the school year began we’ve enjoyed a lovely welcome reception for new families to Central School, a beautiful breakfast for the staff provided by the PTA, the first Grade Level Rep meeting, two staff meetings and a half day visit from Annie Ward, Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. I think it’s safe to say we are all settling in and off to a wonderful start to the new year.

Once again, we welcome all our new families and staff members to Central School and are certain you will quickly come to know all that makes our community so special! 

Warm regards,

Joanne Hindley
