CENTERVILLE ELEMENTARY DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
December 15, 2016
I want to personally thank you all for getting the student information updated over the last week. We went from 197 incomplete to 8 in the span of a week. I cannot stress the importance of having this complete. Keeping our students safe with updated information is critical for us to be able to provide your children with the best care possible.
We recently had our lockdown drill in conjunction with the Barnstable Police. This is an important safety drill that we conduct every year. The police evaluate us on our response and we strive to improve based on their feedback. Like fire drills, these are annual drills that we conduct to ensure that our staff and students know the expectations in case of a real emergency. All of our drills this year have been very successful!
We had a fun-filled well attended movie night here last Friday! I want to extend a big thank you to the parents who organized the event and to Mr. Preston who volunteered to be the school representative to the event. The students were well behaved and patient as Mr. Preston corrected some technical difficulties. A great night was had by all!
I have some news about a special staff member who has worked at Centerville for the last twenty-two years. Mrs. Turnbull will be retiring at the winter break and will not be returning to our school. She has been a wonderful teacher to so many students. We are sad to see her leaving us. We have just hired Mrs. Elizabeth Chamsarian to be her replacement. Mrs. Chamsarian has been a member of our staff for the last two years. We will be hiring a teacher to take her place over the next few weeks. We welcome her into her new role as our resource room teacher.
From all of us here at Centerville Elementary School have a safe winter break.
Centerville Elementary School is a safe environment in which all individuals are treated with dignity and respect. Students are educated using a standards based curriculum. Our instruction utilizes best practices to meet the individual needs of all of our students academically, socially and emotionally.
