Welcome to The Center School
The Center School is a part of the Nashoba Regional School District which consists of Stow, Bolton, and Lancaster. The Center School houses students in grades PK-5 and currently has 630 students enrolled. The Center School building project was completed in the fall of 2012, in time for all students to begin the school year in the new building. There are presently 29 classrooms and the staff totals 70 employees. Our class size varies from 18 to 25 depending upon the grade. We provide a strong academic program featuring high expectations and current educational practices which enable students to maximize their individual potential and become valuable citizens in our community.
Letter from Mr. Mulkerin, Principal:
July 16, 2015
Dear Center School Families,
I am very grateful and excited to be the new principal at the Center School. I officially started on July 1st and I have learned so much already about this great school and community. Mrs. O'Brien and Mrs. Rogers have facilitated a successful start for me. I have also had initial meetings with several other administrators and district staff as part of my entry plan. As a newcomer, I can clearly feel the welcoming and supportive culture of the Nashoba Regional School District!
As a parent, I understand the complexities and demands of raising children and the importance of a positive home-school relationship. That positive relationship is a priority for me as a principal as well. A major step to begin this relationship with you will be to hold two "Meet with Mr. Mulkerin" evening events this summer. My hope is that the schedule offers an opportunity for all families to attend one of these events in light of work and vacation schedules. Please consider attending one of the following evenings: Tuesday August 11th 6:30-8:00 or Tuesday August 18th 6:30-8:00
These informal meetings will take place in the Center School cafeteria. Feel free to stop in during that time so that we can meet and begin our partnership. If you are unable to attend, I will be scheduling other events during the school year to give us an opportunity to meet.
When I am not at school, I am very busy with my family. I live in Northborough with my wife and two boys. Our recent adventures include building a tree fort and taming our veggie garden. I also try to run early in the mornings and read as much as possible. Prior to the Center School, I was the principal of the Whittemore Elementary School in Waltham. I have also been a teacher, special education chairperson and special education administrator. Being a principal brings me the most joy of any professional experience thus far.
I am very appreciative and grateful to be serving the Nashoba Regional School District as Principal of the Center School. I look forward to my work ahead and I am extremely excited to meet our students. I want every single student to feel the importance of their individuality, believe in their abilities, and achieve their greatest potential.
Ross Mulkerin, Principal
