Superintendent's Message

December 10, 2018.
 
The Canton FFA sends out a huge “thank you” to all those that donated items, attended the meal, or bought auction items at last week’s “Blue Jacket Gold Standard” event!  It was a success and will help to continue to grow the Canton High School FFA Program.
 
We also want to congratulate our Junior High Band Program on having 34 students make the All-Region Band!  The future of the Band program is certainly bright!
 
In this week’s activities, the High School Choir will host their Christmas Concert on Monday evening in the Auditorium at 7pm.  Also on Monday, the Junior High Basketball teams will be taking on Athens.  The Boys will face the Hornets at home, while the Girls will be on the road to Athens.
 
Tuesday evening the Junior High Band will perform their Christmas Concert at the Larry Davis Auditorium.
 
Also on Tuesday, the High School Basketball teams will be at home.  The Boys will take on Caddo Mills and the Eaglettes will be taking the court against Dallas Christian.
 
The High School Girls Basketball teams will be hosting Venus on Friday and the Junior High Girls will be hosting the Canton Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
 
The Elementary sends us the Canton ISD “Student of the Week” this week!  Miss Neveah Busby is the daughter of Dustin Busby and Catherine Lane and she is in Ms. Lide’s 1st grade class.
 
Neveah says she enjoys Art and Reading and one day she would like to become a doctor.  She enjoys swinging on the playground, reading, playing outside, and playing school.  Neveah says she also enjoys doing chores with her mother.
 
CES Principal, Mrs. Lamar says, “Neveah has made so much progress this year in her motivation to read.  Ms. Lide talks about how she likes to help others.  She has a kind heart and brings others so much joy.
 
The Eagle Vision trait for the week is, “Lead by example.”  Do great work, remain positive, and lend a hand along the way.
 
The Eagle Etiquette reminder is “Listen to others; talk, don’t text.”
 
And the Quote of the Month for December is “God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.”
 
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!
 
Respectfully,
 
Jay Tullos
