School Supplies 2018-2019

Following the lead of many other schools in our district, we have opted to go with pre-packaged supplies again for September. We were able to purchase high quality school supplies at bulk prices and will be charging a flat fee for students in September. This will save time and cost when back-to-school shopping.  

The cost for these school supplies are:

  • Kindergarten - Gr. 3  $30.00
  • Grades 4 - 5  $35.00

If your child's account was not paid in the 2017/2018 school year you need to purchase the supplies and bring them to school the first week of school.

Please contact the school and/or your child's teacher for a supply list.

The Chilliwack School District has moved to a centralized, electronic registration system. Our schools no longer accept paper registration forms. This online process provides parents and guardians an option to register their child at any time, even over the summer break. This includes registration for K - 12, French Immersion and out of catchment requests. You will be required to:
1. Provide a valid email address
2. Upload a copy of the child’s birth certificate
3. Upload proof of residency

Welcome to a great year at Central Elementary School! Located in the heart of downtown Chilliwack, Central has been educating the citizens of our wonderful city for almost 100 years.  We have some wonderful plans for this school year; it promises to be an exciting time for all of us in the Central school community!

The staff members at Central are committed to improving student achievement in all areas, including the academic, social and physical skills that are essential to success in school and in life.  We know that sound thinking leads to success. Our desire is to see every child be successful at reading, writing, speaking and problem-solving, with solid language and number skills.  We want every child to experience enjoyment and personal satisfaction and to learn to work effectively with others as they develop into caring, contributing members of our community.  The decisions made at Central will reflect this commitment.

We maintain an open communication policy with you at home. Our website, class and school newsletters, and our parent bulletin board in the school are a few ways we try to stay in touch.  In addition, we welcome you to come into the school and talk with us and to get involved in whatever capacity fits your family schedule.  Parental involvement in a child's education is a key indicator of future success.

Please do not hesitate to call the school office (604-792-8537) if you require more information or wish to speak with a staff member.  We look forward to a great year together!

Kindest regards,

Mrs. L. Waddington, Principal
