Dear Canaan Parents/Guardians:

More events will be added as we move toward the end of the year. We would like to encourage all of you to attend as many school functions as you can. Contact your child’s teachers to see if you can help in anyway, they would be most grateful. If you have any questions call your child’s teacher or me.

I urge all parents to insist that their children wear a helmet while riding their bike. Bike helmets do save lives and it is a State Law. Please help us prevent any needless tragedy, thank you.

Please feel free to call or stop in with any questions or problems. Thanks for your continued support.
