Mission Statement

The Centerville Primary Village North PTO is actively committed to enhancing our children's educational experience with contributions of financial support and volunteerism. We collaborate with parents, teachers and staff to enrich our children's education and foster the wonder of learning. We create an environment that helps strengthen the connection between home and school.

PTO Supports Our School

We work hard to provide your family with both fundraising and non-fundraising events to create many wonderful family memories. Your involvement through joining, volunteering, and participating in PTO sponsored activities gives your child the great experiences you have come to expect from Centerville City Schools. Our primary events throughout the year include the Little Elk Rally, Winter Carnival, Fitness Challenge or Run and Read, and Book Fair.

The money the PTO raises helps purchase classroom equipment and supplies, books, supplemental field trips, art enrichment programs and supplies, playground equipment, cooking classroom supplies, and a whole lot more!

Message from the Principal

Thank you for your support of Centerville Primary Village North! Your children continue to excel due to the wonderful partnership between home and school. Please consider supporting our PTO which provides so many benefits to your child's learning experience. We look forward to this school year with your family.

Mrs. Cline, Principal
