A Letter to You from your Child’s Principal, Ellie Webb

Dear Centennial Parents and Families,

Welcome to an another amazing year at Centennial Elementary!

My name is Ellie Adkins Webb, and I serve as the grateful principal of Centennial Elementary School.  This will be my 2nd year serving as principal of Centennial and 24th year in education (composed of 10 years of campus / district leadership and 14 years of classroom teaching in the states of Texas and Oklahoma).

As a faithful advocate for public schools achieving excellence in educating children, I work to realize my life’s calling: to support children in knowing they are safe, loved and fully empowered to realize their endowed potential to become caring, contributing citizens.  I’m invested in your child’s current and future success. Simply, I love people, and children are some of my very favorites!

As a passionate mom, grandma, and educator, I know what your child (and his / her safety, happiness, and success) means to you. As your children are the most precious things in your world, I want to assure you that they are also most precious to our Centennial staff.  Providing a safe, caring, student-centered, fun and creative learning environment for your child which facilitates “productive struggle” that grows all learners is my aim.  My question will always be, “What if she / he were my child?”

In working with our campus teams to continue the tradition of excellence that has been firmly established at Centennial Elementary (an award-winning “National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence” and “Great Expectations Model Campus,”) it is our aim that you and your child feel warmly welcomed and excited coming to school each day! In an environment of high expectations and high support, our students, staff and community will continue to thrive to exceed expectations.

I’m grateful to serve in the wonderful Edmond Public Schools.  I’m also both humbled and honored to lead this incredible Centennial team, including Mrs. Kerner, our new assistant principal, to partner with you in your child’s learning journey!  It is my hope to earn your trust as we form the strong foundation, together, for some of your child’s most important formative years.

At your service, with kind regards,

Ellie Adkins Webb
