Message from the Principal

October 13, 2020

Dear Canaan Parent/Guardians:

This November weather has been exceptional. Every day we are in session with students is a victory!

  • The first trimester ends this Friday, November 13. Report cards will be coming home next week.
  • Picture retake day is on Thursday, November 19th. If you would like to have your child’s pictures retaken, please send the picture package back to school and they will be re-taken on the 19th. If you would like to order pictures at this time, contact school for a picture envelope. 
  • Friday, November 20th is a workshop day for teacher that was added. It will not be listed on your school magnet as it was just recently added to the schedule. No school for students on the 20th. 
  • There is no school for students Nov 23–27. The teachers will be doing parent/teacher conferences on Monday, November 23. Please contact your child’s teacher to set up a zoom or a telephone conference. On Tuesday, November 24th, the teachers will be having a workshop day. The rest of the week is Thanksgiving break. No school for students the whole week. Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the time off with your family. 

Please make sure your child is dressed properly for recess. Everyone goes outside at recess for some fresh air and fun. 

Afternoon pick up at school will continue as is. A couple suggestions for rainy days or very cold days; wait in your car until there is no line then come up for immediate dismissal. It takes us less than ten minutes to empty the gym. You do not need to stand in line. If you are doing a pick up in town do that first, we will keep the students warm and safe until you arrive. Everyone on school grounds should be wearing a face cover. 

From the entire staff and student body, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a great week off from school. 
If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to call or email. I am always available.
