Superintendent's Message

Student of the Week

Congratulations to our Student of the Week, 7th grader Trinity Nations. Trinity is the daughter of Keith and Audra Nations and has attended Canton since PK. When she gets out of school she hopes to become a veterinarian. She is active in cheerleading, cross country, and volleyball. She also enjoys riding horses, being in the band, and math. 

Something interesting about Trinity is that she has a pet deer named “Bucky” and she loves spending time with her sister Paisley. Her mom is a counselor and her dad is an IT Director. 

Mrs. Dawn Boyd, Canton Junior High Principal, says, “We are so thankful to have Trinity at Canton Junior High. We love seeing her smile and how involved she is in CJH events. Trinity is an asset to CJH”! Congratulations Trinity!

District

On Tuesday night our HS Eaglettes completed a clean sweep of Lone Oak with both the JV and varsity teams winning in straight sets. On Friday night the HS Eaglettes swept all three at Mineola, with the varsity, JV, and freshman teams winning. 

On Saturday our JV Eaglettes captured the championship in the Lindale Tournament.  The HS Eaglettes will wrap up non-district on Tuesday against Gilmer and open district play at Mabank on Friday night. 

Congratulations to our Running Eaglette Cross Country Team of Olivia Freeman, Favor Cantrell, Gracee Wilson, Lana Stapleton, and Kimber Holly on winning the Panther Relays this past Thursday. Our cross country runners will compete this week at the Van Invitational on Saturday. 

On Thursday our 7B defeated Mabank 6-0, 7A defeated Mabank 28-0, and our 9th-grade team won 35-27 over the Panthers. On Friday night our Eagles fell to Mabank in a hard-fought 35-21 decision. The Eagles will face Ferris this week in Ferris with kickoff slated at 7:00 p.m.
