MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
A BIG WELCOME to Center Grove Middle School
Central! We are going to have a SUPER year! As we
continue this journey, one very simple thing is evident
at Central…this staff focuses daily on excellence.
Each staff member has high expectations of
themselves and in turn will have high expectations of
our students. We will start by creating an environment
that is welcoming and safe. We will strive to create
engaging and rigorous learning experiences that will
push each child to reach their highest potential. We
believe that during middle school students should
experience variety and use this window of time to
dream, explore, and achieve! This will allow them to gain the necessary
skills to be fully prepared for High School and beyond.
Middle School Central’s program offerings are designed to meet this
unique age. We are here to support students in their academic and
social growth. We know that this is a time in their development that they
are changing physically and emotionally more than any other time in their
life. We will utilize best practices to design lessons that focus on standards
based content while simultaneously building character. This will help each
child meet our high expectations for learning and behavior.
We look forward to partnering with each and every student, parent, and
community member. I am committed to communicating openly our
areas of growth, our efforts to improve, and most importantly celebrations
of our success! TOGETHER, we can accomplish anything!
Mr. Craig Smith
