Welcome Back to School!
Dear Centerville Students, Staff and Parents,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. I am very excited to serve all of you in my ninth year as your principal. Last school year was the most successful one at every level; academically, athletically and as a school community. As great as the last school year was for Centerville, the 2019-2020 school year has the potential to be even better. To do this, your continued help, leadership and support will be needed at our great school!
I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
I believe that all schools should prioritize three areas: student safety, student success, and creating life-long learners among all students and school staff. For students to learn, they must feel safe at school, both in the classroom and around the school campus. With a safe and productive learning environment, students and teachers will optimize their time at school, and parents and community members will feel comfortable communicating and building relationships at Centerville ISD. This will lead students, teachers, and staff members to continue their focus on student growth and achievement. Student success is rooted in creating life-long learners who develop the ability to self-reflect on their own progress, allowing them to adapt and communicate with teachers, staff members, and parents to make gains in their learning. In the same manner, teachers will continue to self-reflect, communicate, and collaborate with students, parents, and other teachers to help students achieve their highest level of success.
I am looking forward to another amazing school year in service to our students, parents, and community.
