Superintendent's Message

Student of the Week

Congratulations to our Canton ISD Student of the Week, senior Elisa Lajqi. Elisa is the daughter of Val Lajqi. She has attended Canton since kindergarten and her favorite subject is English. When she gets out of school she hopes to become an optometrist. 

Elisa serves as a drum major in the Mighty Canton Band and outside of school she enjoys listening to music and playing games. Something interesting about Elisa is that she is bilingual and does not know how to swim. According to her, she has no plans of learning how to swim. 

According to Mr. Dusty Spencer, CHS Principal, “Elisa is an outstanding leader on the CHS campus. She is serving as one of the drum majors for the Mighty Canton Band, where she recently played a huge role in placing second and securing a silver medal. She is very deserving of this recognition and I look forward to watching all the things she will accomplish in the future.” Congratulations Elisa!


Over the holiday break, our varsity Eagles defeated Union Grove and Bullard. On Saturday afternoon our Eagles fell to Center by a score of 59-40. The Eagles will travel to Community on Tuesday and will then compete in the Van Tournament on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

The varsity Eaglettes fell to Paris this past Monday, but bounced back with a resounding win over Chapel Hill on Tuesday. The Eaglettes will be back in action on Tuesday against Sulphur Springs and will compete in the Winnsboro Tournament on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Monday our junior high Eagles will host Athens, while our junior high Eaglettes will travel to Athens. 

On Thursday night our FFA will host their annual Auction and Dinner starting at 6:00 p.m. in the Canton High School Commons. Please come out and support our chapter with a great evening of fellowship and entertainment. 

Have a great week!

Go Eagles & Eaglettes!
