    Welcome to Center Grove Elementary School! 

    Center Grove Elementary School serves kindergarten through fifth grade students in White River Township and is part of the Center Grove Community School Corporation.

    I am pleased to lead an experienced staff that is committed to giving every student an Exceptional Educational Experience.  At CGES we strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our students and their families.  I am excited to help continue this tradition of excellence.  The amazing staff works hard every day to engage students in high quality instruction that supports their learning!  The commitment of the CGES families to building a strong foundation for their students is another key to our success!  

    At CGES we live by the Knights Creed which commits everyone to be responsible for doing their part to make CGES an awesome place to learn and grow!  We are committed to creating safe and positive learning environments that provide every student with the best learning opportunities!  The staff is dedicated to academic excellence and high expectations which leads to successful learning!  

    The staff at CGES is committed to building responsible citizens for our community.  By working with students on social skills, we are able to give students the tools they need to form and maintain positive relationships.  Students are encouraged to be kind and to take a stand against bullying.  The social and emotional needs of our students are a priority!    

    At Center Grove Elementary School, we are committed to providing a positive educational experience for your child.  I take my role in your child’s education very seriously and am pleased to be a small part of the success that I hope they experience at CGES!  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns regarding your child’s experience at CGES.  You can reach me at 317-881-1720 or bucklerc@centergrove.k12.in.us
