January is School Board Recognition Month. When you have the opportunity please let our board members know how much you appreciate their service to the students and staff of Canton ISD. We are very blessed to have such an outstanding group of board members.
 
Student of the Week
 
Congratulations to our Student of the Week, 5th grader Daniel Zarate. Daniel is the son of Cenobio and Tina Zarate. Daniel has attended Canton since kindergarten and when he graduates he hopes to become a mechanic. Daniel is involved in CYFA football, soccer, and basketball. Daniel also enjoys playing outside with his cousins and on his PS4. His favorite subject is science and he dreams of playing in the NFL when he gets older.
 
Mrs. Angie McLeod, Canton Intermediate Principal, says “ Daniel is such a pleasure to be around. He comes to school every day with a positive attitude and seems to always be wearing a smile.”  His teacher Mrs. Dennie says, "Daniel is a terrific all-around student! He jumps in to help anytime his classmates or teachers need it. He has a very strong work ethic, always puts forth great effort, is considerate, and truly cares for others." We are so proud of Daniel and look forward to watching him achieve many great things throughout his future! Congratulations Daniel!
