Wes Woodward
Principal at CES

As the principal of Carpenter Elementary School, I welcome you to our website and hope that you find what you need here.  I feel that actual learning is the most important focus a school should provide.  There are many areas that we can help students learn and grow in.  Obviously, for a school, the academic learning is at the forefront but we also value character education and have embraced the Cowboy Code of Conduct (or Cowboy Ethics) to help us emphasize this with students.   

We know that no person or organization is perfect but we feel strongly that we should be continuously working to get better at what we provide for students.  I encourage you to offer suggestions to us using the form on our school homepage to help us improve.  If you would rather visit in person you are welcome to come to the school during school hours to visit with us.

We love the opportunity we have to work with the children of the Carpenter area and want to work with you to help them become responsible, respectful, lifelong learners.  We additionally want to help them to be resilient and be able to think and work through any challenges they may face.

I am happy to work in such a wonderful community that instills the values of hard work, integrity and caring for each other.  This helps the students learn by example of what they want to become and gives us a brighter outlook for the future of our community, state, and country.

Let us know how we can help your individual situation.


Wes Woodward
