Central is a safe, caring place where all children can learn and grow. Our goal is to develop strong connections between home and school, working together with you to develop the whole child, while celebrating the joys of childhood.

During this school year, we will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Central by focusing on kindness, exploring STEM education, building a love for independent reading, and implementing the best instructional strategies to increase student achievement.

We continuously review and revise our programs to align our curriculum with the Academic Standards. All students are provided high quality core instruction as well as early identification of academic and behavior needs. Collecting, utilizing, and analyzing student data on a regular basis, each child is monitored for success. The goal is to provide a strong academic support and a systematic approach to prevention and early intervention.

Many parents ask what they can do to prepare their child for school. The single most important thing you can do for your child is to read with them. Creating an environment rich in books and a love of reading significantly boosts your child’s learning potential.

Another important indicator of school success is becoming involved. We encourage your participation in the education of your child. We have a very strong PTO, which provides many opportunities for volunteering. You can also be involved at home by talking to your child about school, asking questions, supporting teachers and chaperoning field trips or classroom activities. We welcome parent volunteers!

Our staff is one of the finest and most dedicated anywhere. We realize the importance of your child’s education and we take that responsibility very seriously. Please check out our website for information, activities and updates at www.plainfield.k12.in.us.

We are looking forward to a great school year!
