Principal's Corner

Mr. Ornelas


Greetings Central Middle School parents and community members,

As the new principal at Central Middle school, It’s an honor to be part of the Puma family!  Central will continue with its tradition of pride and excellence no matter what type of learning environment we might have, face to face, remote, or hybrid.  Everyone can rest assured this school year we will continue on the same path to achieve greatness; not only on state accountability ratings but in all aspects.

Major contributors to outstanding campus performance are relentless students and the outstanding and dedicated teachers at Central Middle School.  Through input and collaboration among all stakeholders which include parents, teachers, central office personnel and administrators, we will continue on the same path.  Our administrative team will implement and provide a safe and inviting environment for learning and enjoyment to take place on campus or remotely as we all know everlasting memories will be created through academics, fine arts and athletics.  

On a personal note, I have had the opportunity to serve this great school district and community since 2002, as a math teacher at Dr. Armando Cuellar Middle School, as a campus instructional facilitator at Dr. R. E. Margo Elementary and most recently as an assistant principal at Weslaco High School.  I bring with me attributes that I have learned throughout this journey to build trust and relationships that's needed to continue moving Central Middle School forward.  

Please feel free to email me at if you have questions and follow us on social media where we will be posting updates.  I look forward to serving this great educational community, The Central Pumas Family!
