Welcome to Chilliwack Central Elementary Community School

Located in the heart of downtown Chilliwack, Central school has been educating the citizens of our city for almost 100 years.  We have some wonderful plans for this school year . We recognize it will be a challenging time, but we continue to work together for health, safety and ongoing learning.

The staff members at Central are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for every child.  We are committed to improving student achievement in all areas which includes academic, social and physical skills that are essential to success both in school and in life. We know that sound thinking leads to success. Our desire is to see every child be successful at problem solving and have 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 outside of our school, are a few ways we try to stay in touch. Family 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
