Eagle Vision Quote of the Month
 
Do what's right, even when nobody is looking.
 
This past week the district’s enrollment reached 2,200 students. This number is an all-time high for the district.
 
Congratulations to our Student of the Week, Brody Wampler. Brody, a sixth grader, is the son of Cody and Amber Wampler. Brody enjoys basketball, hunting, riding dirt bikes, and taking care of animals at home. His favorite subject is science and when he graduates he hopes to become an engineer. Brody is involved in UIL Music Memory and Art. Something interesting about Brody, that people may not know is that he went to Mexico on a mission trip and had heart surgery when he was 5. 
 
Mr. Rhoten, Canton Junior High Principal, says “Brody has done an excellent job of stepping into the junior high campus as a solid 6th grade leader. Brody leads by example and always seems to make wise choices”.  
 
We would also like to congratulate Canton FFA member Jessica Stephens on being named District 21 FFA President. Way to go Jessica!
 
Our junior high UIL academic teams finished second at each grade level in district competition this week.
 
On Saturday, January 25th the Canton Choir will host its Showstoppers Fundraiser Dinner in the Canton High School Commons from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
 
Congratulations to our Rotary Club Student’s of the Month. From the high school Chris Hobbs and Olivia Norrell and from junior high Georgia Crayton and Ford Robinson.
