Principal's Message!

Dr. Zampillo

Hello Central Middle School Students and Families,

I hope all of you have had a great Summer! I am excited to serve and lead the Central Middle School community starting in the 2022-2023 school year.  
In the short time that I have served as Central’s Principal, I have learned that it is a school populated with outstanding students, dedicated staff, and a supportive parent population. With these things in place along with being located in a strong community, I look forward to working with you, our kids, and our staff in order to do great things for the students of Central Middle School.  
My vision for Central Middle School is to ensure that it is a fun, nurturing, and safe place that ensures all students have the opportunity to learn and grow successfully.  The administration, faculty, and staff will strive to make this happen by establishing strong, positive connections with students while exposing them to engaging, equitable, relevant, and fun learning opportunities. 
In addition, we will make sure it is a priority to form strong partnerships with our parents as well as our community members because these collaborative relationships are necessary to ensure students are provided with everything they need to successfully grow academically, personally, and socially. 
I am grateful to have been granted the opportunity to be part of such a special school community and look forward to what the future will bring for the students of Central Middle School as we work together to provide them with the great educational experiences they deserve. 
Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or need anything from the Central Middle School community.  I look forward to the great things we will do together!

Go Panthers,
Joe Zampillo, Ed.D.
Central Middle School Principal
