Canon School accepts awards
Stacey Lane~ 4/23/2014
The Canon School Board held a public meeting April 14 at 6 p.m. in the school library.
The evening was filled with awards and recognition, including the "Exceptional Record Keeping Award" from the Yavapai County Health Department and a first place “Best in Show” distinction for a float at the recent White Cane Parade that consisted of student-made paw prints, dog bones and students dressed like puppies to accompany this year's theme of “It's a Dog's Life.”
There was also recognition of Jessica Smith for receiving the Third Grade Reading Grant from the Yavapai County Education Foundation. The $500 grant is designed to build fluency, comprehension and phonics in the third grade. Smith further reviewed her reading center program for the classroom.
Rick Barrett delivered the principal's report, followed by the superintendent's report from Angela Jangula. Discussions included finger printing rules and regulations, the AIM's testing that was in progress, transportation funds and the sale of the old school property. Also discussed were property taxes and approved contracts for the next school year.
Canon School officials are looking forward to the Family Field Day on April 25. Parents are encouraged to attend and participate in the day's events scheduled to begin at 8:45 a.m.
