" It is an honor to serve as the principal of C. B. Eller Elementary School! It has been a wonderful start to our school year. Everyone is working extremely hard to make this the best school year ever"!!!
C.B. Eller staff and students had a great first week of school thanks a lot in part to our new principal, Mr. Chad Mann.
PreK students raised 196.4 pounds of food for the local food bank at Tri County Christian Crisis Ministry. The students had hands on experience in helping those in need by going to Tri C and organizing the donated food onto shelves. It is never too early to begin learning to help others and especially those in need.
Safety Patrol team members work hard everyday keeping C.B. Eller clean and safe. These students learn pride and responsibility by assisting students in both the morning and afternoon car line and being in charge of our schools recycling program. We are very proud and thankful for this outstanding group of students! Keep up the great work.

Mr. Chad Mann was officially crowned "King" of Sir Readalot's Castle on Monday, Oct. 13th. Proceeded by his court, his highness was fitted with royal regalia including a cape, scepter, and was crowned by none other than Wilkes County Schools' superintendent, Dr. Marty Hemric. As "King Mann" announced the opening of C. B . Eller's book fair, he challenged all students to develop a love of reading and to become a reader! We invite everyone out to our school's book fair.
Fabulous first graders used pumpkin seeds for interactive learning in math. Students grouped seeds and counted them by tens. One of their pumpkins had over 800 seeds! Great job 1st grade.
