This past week the Canton Lil’ Dribblers hosted the National Tournament.  We want to congratulate all of our students that represented Canton very well in the competition.  A special congratulations goes out to the Canton Major Division Boys team that won their division and kept the National Championship Trophy right here in Canton!

This week Canton Intermediate sends us our “Student of the Week!”  It is 5th grade student, Jason Mitchell.  Jason is the son of Charles and Sue Mitchell and he is in Mrs. Dennie’s classroom.  He says that his favorite subject is Science and his dream is to become a professional basketball player one day.

In school Jason is part of Student Council.  Outside of school he likes to play basketball, baseball, and football.  He also really enjoys going fishing on Lake Tawakoni with his grandfather.

CIS Principal, Ms. Robison says that Jason is one of the most dependable students on our campus.  He is involved in student council and uses his leadership skills at school every day.  Mrs. Dennie adds that Jason has great manners and is a friend to all students.

We are proud to have students like Jason Mitchell setting a high standard for all of our other students to meet.  Congratulations Jason and keep up the great work!

This week’s Eagle Vision Trait is to, “Give respect to gain respect.”  Treat others as you would like to be treated.

The Eagle Etiquette reminder is to, Use “Please”, “Thank you”, and “You’re Welcome” when appropriate.

The April Quote of the Month is, “Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it.  Right is right, even if no one is doing it.”

Make sure to keep up with all the campuses and district happenings by following us on Twitter.  We want to thank our community for all their support, and hope everyone has a great week!
