TALENTED AND GIFTED
Central Elementary recognizes the needs of the gifted students by offering differentiated learning opportunities and enrichment in each classroom. Services for students are provided for in the regular education classrooms.
PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION
We have a very strong PTO who is involved in many different ways. PTO helps by running the Book Fair, organizing Staff Appreciation Week, COSI and many other events. The PTO also is a primary fundraiser for our school. Over the years, they have purchased Smartboards for each of the classrooms, accucut die cuts, playground equipment and many books. They have also sponsored such events and COSI on wheels and other assemblies. For more information, contact the school’s office.
Volunteers are an important part of Central Elementary. Many volunteers help to make our school run efficiently. On an average week, the total hours that our volunteers help the students equal to having three extra people per day. Some of the volunteers assist with “book talks”, running papers, helping students who are struggling, helping students who are accelerating, listening to children read and many other activities. We rely on our volunteers and are very fortunate to have so many that are willing to help. Many of our volunteers are not only parents but also community members who believe in the importance of education.
