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!
