Dear Central Families,

It’s that time of year again; time to get back to routine, time for early to bed and early to rise, and time for Central to welcome our students wishing them a happy, safe, and challenging school year!

I feel inspired and proud to open the 2018-2019 school year as your principal.  In my first few months here as principal I was overwhelmed by the amount of support shown by teachers and families, and pledge to show this same desire, and dedication to the Central school community. 

September 4th marks not only your child’s first day of school, but also the first day for us to reclaim our commitment to providing excellence through a rigorous curriculum, high degrees of support, and countless opportunities for your child to be part of the Central school family.

The staff at Central is proud and remains steadfast in our mission of serving children, providing a world class education.   

We look forward to welcoming students on September 4th and hope to see you at Back to School night on September 11th at 6:00pm in the auditorium.


Dr. Christina Cortellessa

Central Middle School Principal
