Welcome to DeSoto Central Elementary!

Dear Jaguar families,

As the principal of Desoto Central Elementary, I would like to extend a warm welcome to every family in the community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence!

My hope is that all children will LOVE school and that we will nurture a learning environment that is positive and safe, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.

Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community. It truly does take a village! Education is a joint venture and Team DCES greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.

By working together we can help each child achieve an excellent education in a safe and positive environment.

We look forward to another year full of adventure and student growth!



Lisa Nye, M.Ed.
