  • 2020-21 Principals Welcome Letter & Digital Learning Guide

    Happy New School Year!  Thank you for making Centerville Elementary such an awesome place for our students to learn! Our theme for the 2020-2021 school year is, “Generals Connect” This theme was inspired by our desire to build strong partnerships with our students, families, and the community.  Here at Centerville, we believe that with the support of our families and community, our students can look forward to a great school year.   Starting the school year digitally will be a new and different way of teaching and learning for both our students and teachers.  As we embark on this unprecedented journey together, we pledge to do our best to provide engaging and meaningful instruction through our digital classrooms while building positive relationships with our students.
