Letter from the Principal

Central Families,


I am honored to be your Principal this year! I look forward to a super year of learning and growing! It is our wish that each day we ENGAGE, EDUCATE, and EMPOWER every student! 


I am a Rockingham County native and a graduate of Rockingham County Schools. I attended UNC-Chapel Hill as a NC Teaching Fellow where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching at Williamsburg Elementary as a Kindergarten teacher and then moved to teaching 5th grade. I earned a Master’s Degree from NC A&T while teaching. I also earned my Administration License from Appalachian State University. I served as an Assistant Principal at both Monroeton and Wentworth Elementary Schools. I served as the principal of New Vision School of Math, Science, and Technology prior to moving to Central. I have been the principal of Central since 2018 and I love being a Panther Cub! 


It is our goal at CES to offer a safe and nurturing learning environment where students are challenged to grow and learn to be the best that they can be. I look at growth and educational excellence as a team effort between students, teachers,  support staff, parents, community members and administration. Here at CES we strive to offer a differentiated approach where learning is personalized for students. We expect to see students reading, writing, thinking, talking, and doing each day.


This year, our theme is:  SUPERHEROES


Central Elementary is where superheroes LEARN their powers! 





Letter from the Assistant Principal

Dear Panther Cub Families,

I am deeply honored to work at Central Elementary School, with its long history and sustained culture of academic excellence. I will work hard to maintain the legacy of success already established here. I am committed to working in a partnership with Mrs. Frazier, students, parents, and staff to nurture the academic, social and emotional development of each of our students.

I am thrilled and privileged to be a part of this wonderful community. I have twenty-one years of educational experience. My most recent educational experience was as a high school assistant principal at Rockingham County High School. Prior to my administrative career, I taught seventh grade and eighth grade science at Rockingham County Middle School. I am currently enrolled at Virginia Tech, working to obtain an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.

I am excited for the possibilities this school year will bring. I believe with a positive attitude, a growth mindset and good character we all can achieve great things. I am proud to be a part of the Panther Cub Family at Central Elementary. 


In partnership, 

Lori Beth Davis
