Welcome to Polk Central Elementary School, home of the Rockets!

It is my privilege to serve as your principal and work with our amazing students and teachers on a daily basis. Here at PCES, we value each member of our school community and seek to identify and utilize each person’s strengths for our community’s betterment and our students’ education. 

Our focus is to build relationships with students and families while delivering rigorous lessons relevant to our community’s needs. Our educational philosophy revolves around increased literacy and math foundations while incorporating hands-on learning and exploration. 

Polk Central Elementary School is a focal point in our community where families come together to celebrate learning and growth. We look forward to working alongside each of our students and families! 

Best Wishes for a Fantastic School Year,

Dr. Kim McMinn
