Principal's Message

Dear Central Elementary Families,


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. Wow, saying 2022-2023 seems so unreal when many of us thought 2000 would never come.

Allow me to reintroduce myself as the Principal of Seaford Central Elementary. I am humbled and excited for this opportunity to lead such a wonderful staff. I am eager to continue the extraordinary work that we do every day. We will continue to teach, support, and show love to our students. 


We are slowly returning to what we consider "normal" activities, like being able to see our students' smiles, taking field trips, and allowing parents to come to certain events! How exciting!  Our experience with Covid-19 taught us that schools and teachers are an integral part of our society. Being IN school, for many children, is a necessity. Teachers are important and so is the partnership between home and school. It truly does "take a village to raise a child".


I know our families will agree that education/knowledge is essential. Whether you are pre-k, elementary, middle school, high school, or beyond, once you have knowledge of something, that knowledge is yours forever. We all should strive to be lifelong learners because you can learn something new every day! 


All of us here at Central will continue to teach and model how to Leave the World Better than You Found It.” We will always expect our students to be respectful, responsible, safe and most importantly, KIND! It is my hope that you will join us in teaching, modeling and expecting the same.


Like and follow our Facebook page, Seaford Central Elementary School, and our Instagram page at Seaford_Central_Elementary, to see all the great things happening at our school. You can also follow Seaford School District’s Facebook page to see more great things happening across our District.


Let’s work together to make this an awesome year!



Ms. Chandra Phillips, Principal
