WELCOME 
Mrs. Jan Crump 


I consider it an honor and a privilege to be the Principal of Polk Central Elementary!   After graduating from Mars Hill College, I received a Principal Fellow's Scholarship and decided to pursue my studies in Educational Administration at Appalachian State University.   I have been an elementary school principal for 20 years.   As the leader of our school, it is my desire for our students' best interest to ALWAYS be at the heart of every decision we make!  We want to strive daily to be best at not only educating our children, but also at providing top notch care for their social and emotional needs.  I have always believed the saying, "Children don't care how much you know until they know how much you care!"  The moment you walk through the doors at Polk Central Elementary, I hope you can feel our staff members truly do care about each and every one of our children.  I am very proud to be a Polk Central Rocket and thank you for partnering with us as we help our students SOAR!
