Superintendent's Message

Student of the Week

Congratulations to our Student of the Week, 2nd grader Cale Clayton. Cale is the son of Chet and Jennifer Clayton and has attended Canton since kindergarten. When he gets out of school he hopes to become either a banker or a biker. According to Cale, bikers help people out when they have problems. 

Outside of school, Cale enjoys baseball, basketball, and football and also enjoys jumping on his trampoline, riding his go-cart, and skateboard. His favorite subject in school is art because he really likes to draw. Something interesting about Cale that he wants people to know is that “he is more than a kid who knows how to do stuff. He is a leader with a caring heart for others”. 

According to Mrs. Kelly Lamar, Canton Elementary Principal, “Cale is an awesome leader at CES. He strives to make good choices daily. Cale always makes great choices at school in and out of the classroom. He gets along with others and has a positive attitude. I am impressed at his maturity in 2nd grade. CES is proud to have him on our team. He is definitely going to do GREAT things in his future. We are so proud of Cale and his achievements''! Congratulations Cale!

On Monday night our baseball team will travel to Athens, followed by another road game on Tuesday at Mabank, and then concluding the week at home against Van. 

On Tuesday night our Mighty Canton Band held an outstanding percussion concert. All of our groups and soloists did an amazing job! Also this week our Canton Choir participated at UIL. Treble got straight 1's on both stage and sight-reading. Chorale and Acapella got 2's on stage and 1's in the sight-reading room.

Go Eagles and Eaglettes!
