Meet Our Principal

Mrs. Jeanie Sienkowski

Central Elementary School is a wonderful place where students are loved, supported, and challenged.  Together we work hard, practice kindness, and have fun!

As an educator  in the Valparaiso Community School district for 18 years, I have always valued the relationships formed with kids and families and I look forward to developing lifelong relationships with you, our Central families.  My husband, Scott, is a P.E. teacher at Memorial and Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools.  Our daughter, Sydney, is an 8th grader at Ben Franklin Middle School, and our son, Sam, is a 4th grader at Central.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, and reading.  


I love being a part of the Valparaiso community and I look forward to seeing you throughout the year at both school and community events. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me about any questions, concerns, or ideas you might have.  We are Valpo!
