Principal's Message

TEAM Center Families,


Mayfield Together. Mayfield Strong! As Principal of Center Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! This is my 7th year as the Principal at Center and my 22nd year in the district. I could not ask for a more supportive and student-centered school community, and I am looking forward to partnering with all of you again this year to make it an amazing year!

Our school motto at Center Elementary is Center Cyclones CARE: We CARE about ourselves. We CARE about others. We CARE about our community. As a school community, we strive to provide a positive, personalized and supportive environment and an instructional program that motivates students to become lifelong learners. As a parent/guardian, please know that you are a valued member of this caring community, and we strive to connect with you as much as possible so we can work together to help your child grow. We know that the current pandemic adds extra stress to this transition into a new school year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our staff members as we work together to transition your child into his/her new classroom and routines.


Your partner in education,


Mrs. Kate Rateno
