Principal's Message



Principal PhotoMy name is Ms. Shelsy D. Williams and I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Central Middle School Principal. It is truly an honor and privilege to work with such outstanding students, faculty and staff, parents, families and members of the community. I am committed to the goal of providing your child(ren) with quality learning and support for life long success. At CMS, the students are our top priority, and I believe in the ability and potential of every student to learn.


As a part of the CMS family, I am looking forward to working with you to see what we can do cooperatively for the betterment of the faculty, student body, parents and families, and community.


The quest for success is significant. Our success will lead to the future successes of our students and community. It is my belief that the children of today are our leaders of tomorrow.


Through teamwork, there is nothing we cannot achieve. The entire CMS Faculty and Staff will provide an equal share in making our school a safe environment that is conducive to the learning of all. Our students will be encouraged to challenge the lessons our teachers create, rather than creating challenges for our teachers.


Not only am I here to lead with intent, but I am also here to foster support, to serve the students, teachers, the school community, to build healthy relationships and to be a resource to you.


Parents and community volunteers, we welcome and encourage your involvement, participation, and support here at Central Middle School.


As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at 337.457.5895 or via email at [email protected].



Educationally Yours,




“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”   2 Timothy 1:7
