Eagle Vision Quote of the Month
 
“Make the very best of everyday, regardless of your circumstances”.
 
Student of the Week
 
Congratulations to our Student of the Week, Leah Birch. Leah is a 7th grader and started going to school in Canton last year in the 6th grade. Leah is a scout member, who enjoys horseback riding and wants to learn how to barrel race. She also enjoys planting and caring for flowers in the garden at home.
 
When Leah gets out of school she isn’t sure what job she would enjoy, but she knows she wants to get married one day, as family is very important to her. She said her sisters call her a hero because she would be willing to put herself in harm's way to protect them. Leah enjoys all of her classes because she is eager to learn, but if she had to pick one she would say it is history.
 
Something interesting about Leah that people may not know is that she has five siblings who all attend school in Canton. Her first experience with public school was last year when she moved to Canton. Leah says she is shy but is always willing to make friends. She admits that she is more likely to open up around smaller groups.
 
According to Mrs. Dawn Boyd, Canton Junior High Principal, “Leah is a sweet young lady. She sees the good in others and is eager to make new friends. She loves learning and is a hard worker.” Mrs. Boyd also added she believes Leah “can accomplish anything because she has the right attitude and determination”. Congratulations Leah on being named Canton ISD’s Student of the Week!
