Central Elementary School Staff

Our staff strive to nurture students as they become lifelong learners. Students participate in various types of learning activities led by these highly-qualified teachers.

Each year District 62 Education Foundation delivers Mini-Grants to teachers and administrators. This year, the foundation awarded 39 grants totaling $35,000, which is $12,000 more than the previous year. Endowments, an annual benefit, featuring entertainment, a banquet, silent auction, and Cents for Kids, an employee payroll deduction program, fund mini-grants.
