Principal's Message


June 17, 2022

Canal View Families,

Happy last day of school! I am incredibly grateful to all of you for your partnership this year. We have been through a great deal this year, and we have continued to persevere through challenges and to have fun along the way. I am so proud of all students and staff!

Please see below for some end-of-year updates:

Canal View Bus Loop Tradition

Many of you may know that it is a beloved tradition for staff members to use water blasters to spray the buses at dismissal. For safety and security reasons, we kindly ask that parents and students do not participate in this tradition from the parking lot. Thank you for your understanding.  

Reminder - Picnic Tonight!

We hope to see you at our parent association sponsored family picnic this evening! The event runs from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. There will be pizza, a Kona Ice truck, a scavenger hunt, and more! My own kids and I will be here serving pizza in the cafeteria. Come join us! This is a free event.  

A Message From Our Librarian, Mrs. Valenti

Want to know how to help keep your child engaged in learning over the summer? READ! 

  • Read to your children
  • Read with your children
  • Bedtime read-alouds 
  • Pass-the-book shared reading
  • Family/friends book club
  • Mini research project 

Allow your children as much choice as possible on what to read.  If your child is looking for something new, the elementary librarians created printable lists of books for each grade level at this link:

From this link, you can get to eBooks by clicking the Summer Reading tab at the top and then the grade level the student is entering.

All public libraries, including Gates and Ogden, have summer reading activities and programs that can be found on their websites. Happy reading!

Have a wonderful summer, Canal View! Best of luck to our fifth graders and to any students heading to new schools in the fall. I will miss all of your kids tremendously!
