Principal's Message


Dear Canal View Families,


Greetings from Canal View.  The purpose of this message is to share information with you about upcoming events here at Canal View. 


The first thing that I would like to talk about is the upcoming Bivona Lessons for our students in grades three through 5.  Starting during the week of September 23, our students will participate in Child Safety Lessons presented by a member of the Bivona staff.  This is the second school year that our District is working with Bivona on the presentation of these lessons.  The lesson schedule is on our website under the Parent and Community tab.  The schedule is also below:

September 23 --  Ms. Gannon, Mrs. Straub and Mrs. Kingsbury will have lessons in their classrooms.

September 24  --  Mrs. Demitrovic, Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Chatterton will have lessons in their classroom.

September 25 --  Mrs. Dwyer, Ms. Welch and Mrs. Judd will have lessons in their classrooms.

September 26  Mr. Rice and Mrs. Milam will have lessons in their classrooms.

During these lessons, your child’s teacher will be in the classroom; either Mrs. Balys, Mrs. Loveland, Ms. Okeen or Mrs. Goldstone will also be in the classroom.  I will also visit classrooms during these lessons.


If you would like more information about this program, please go to the Canal View website, click on the Parent and Community tab and you will fine Bivona: MBF Child Safety Matters.  Here you will find a parent letter and an Opt Out letter. 


The next thing that I want share with you is the Canal View celebration of Homecoming Week which starts on Monday, September 23.  Our theme is “There’s No Place Like HOMEcoming.”  Here is our schedule:

                        September 23              Oz the Great and Powerful  --  wear green and bling.

                        September 24              Twister Tuesday  --  wear mismatched clothes and/or crazy hair.

September 25              Ruby slipper day  --  bring your favorite slippers to school and wear                                                                         them during the day.

September 26              Somewhere Over the Rainbow  --  Tye dye or grade level color day.

September 27              Lions, Tigers and Ranger Bears, Oh My!  --  wear your Ranger gear or                                                                         your blue and gold.

I hope that this will be a spirit filled week for our students!

Our final event is Canal View’s Open House on Wednesday, October 2.  We are inviting you and your children to come to school to show off some of the great work they have already done.  Please come to school between 6:00pm and 7:00pm to visit your child’s classroom!  We hope to see you there!
