It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Center Township Elementary School and Mr. Chad Broman as the assistant principal. We are very excited to join this extraordinary school community. We hope that this note finds you enjoying the rejuvenating days of summer and that you and your children are looking forward to beginning a wonderful school year together in August. We can assure you that we share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them a world-class learning environment.
When you register your child for kindergarten during the summer, you will be asked to choose a screening appointment date and time on July 15, 16, 18 or 19.
Dr. Brian White, Superintendent of the Butler Area School District, presented his recommendation for the future organization of our schools on Monday, June 10, 2019. His recommendation is based on numerous factors, including community feedback that was gathered at the School Organization Community Forums last fall.
At this point, we are once again asking for community feedback. We hope you will take the time to review Dr. White's report and share your feedback by completing a short survey.

Third grade students in Mrs. Lewis' class at Center Township recently created their own Wax Museum. Each student researched an animal, created a poster to display their learning, and then "turned into" that animal during our Wild Ones Wax Museum event. When guests pressed the "play" button, the "animals" came to life and shared information about themselves.
Center Township Elementary students recently earned a SOAR reward by displaying positive behaviors throughout April and May.
