Principal's Message


June 19, 2020


We made it to the end of this unprecedented year! I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve learned over the past 3+ months, and I can honestly say that my favorite takeaway is that we have a wonderful Canal View community filled with people who pull together in the midst of crisis

I am so appreciative of the community support and communication throughout the pandemic. As your new principal, my goal has always been to connect, listen, and learn, even while the building has been closed. I am grateful for every email, phone call, and Zoom session that allowed me to continue to serve you in a variety of ways. 

During the school closure, Canal View staff regularly reminded me of just how proud I am to be a Ranger. They collaboratively supported student and family connections, distance learning, item retrieval, the grade 5 car parade, kindergarten screening, food distribution, materials drop off, and more. At any given time, I was turning volunteers away simply because I had too many staff members willing to come and help. I know I speak for the entire Canal View staff when I say that we love your children and have missed them immensely.

As we transition into summer, I hope you will all take the time to rest, relax, and have fun with your families. Congratulate yourselves and your children on a job well done! I will be taking a social media break but will be available via email or phone call should you need anything. 

If you are interested in accessing some educational resources this summer, consider having your child engage in the online learning programs that are attachedThese resources are optional but are available to you all summer long should you decide to utilize them. In August, the district will provide additional resources and activities to help your child prepare for the 2020-2021 school year. These resources will be optional as well. 

Finally, I want to provide you with a yearbook update. We have eagerly awaited the arrival of yearbooks, but Lifetouch is behind on printing due to COVID-19. When our shipment arrives, we will determine next steps in how to get them to you. I appreciate your patience with their arrival

It has truly been an honor to serve as building principal of Canal View throughout the past six months. Thank you for welcoming me so warmly. I am looking forward to our long future together!

With Gratitude,

Denise Lemcke
