Message from the Principal

October 14, 2021

Dear Canaan Parents/Guardians:

Please be aware that there will be no workshop taking place on November 1st. It will be a regular day for students and teachers. 

Students will be participating in the 2021 Walk-a-thon during their gym class (October 18,19, 20). Any donations students bring in will be for special materials and activities in your child’s classroom. 

Volunteers from the Canaan Fire Department will be conducting Fire Safety for our students on October 21 and 22. The smoke house will be set up and each class will have the opportunity to go through it along with getting valuable information about fire safety.

Giving tree applications were sent home last week. If you need another copy, contact the office. The Giving Tree applications are due back by Friday, October 22.

There are plans being made for a flu clinic for students and staff the first part of November. When a date has been finalized, more information and a permission form will be sent home.

Lifetouch Picture day was re-scheduled for Thursday, November 18th. We should be getting new picture envelopes to send home the first part of November. Parents will be able to go on-line and order pictures just like in the past few years.

The first trimester ends on November 12. Report cards will be sent home the following Friday. Parent/Teacher conference days are November 22 and 23. Please contact your child’s teacher to set up a time to meet in person or by zoom. There is no school for students the week of Nov 22-26. Enjoy the time off.

It’s hard to believe that the first trimester is almost over. It has been a great school year so far. I am always available if you have a question or a concern.
