Superintendent's Message

“Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops.” - Henry Adams

Student of the Week

Our Canton ISD Student of the Week is senior Amrie Clower. Amrie is the daughter of Jeremy Clower and has attended Canton since kindergarten. Her favorite subject is math and she hopes to become a physical therapist. She is active in softball, NHS, Art Club, and Interact Club. 

Mrs. Parker says, “Amrie is willing to help wherever is needed and whenever. She goes above and beyond! Amrie always has a smile on her face. She is a model student and represents CHS well.” Congratulations Amrie!


With graduation next Friday I would like to recognize our top 3 graduating seniors. This year’s Valedictorian is Noe Mendieta, Salutatorian Katie Jo Keller, and third-ranking graduate Haley Luce. Not only are these students exceptional academically, but they are also great representatives of what makes our district so special. 

Congratulations to our Eaglette softball team as they made history by defeating Lindale in two games to move on to the Regional Semifinal round for the first time in school history. Congratulations to our players and coaches. We will face Van Alstyne this week.

Congratulations to our Eaglette golf as they finished up a terrific season at the Class 4A UIL State Meet this week. Taryn Clayton finished tied for 11th and the team consisting of Taryn, Bella Irwin, Caroline Stern, Jayme Robertson, and Casey White finished 10th. 

Good luck to YoYo Jiang and Abby Thelen as they will compete in the Class 4A UIL State Academic Meet next week in Austin.
