Principal's Message


December 2, 2022  

Canal View Families, 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It’s hard to believe it’s already December and that there are just three more weeks until our holiday recess. We anticipate the next few weeks will be filled with learning and fun as we explore the many ways that our school community celebrates a variety of holidays. I hope you and your family enjoy this busy time! 

Please see below for important updates:  

Report cards  Report cards are now live in your child’s Infinite Campus Backpack. Please remember to both view and acknowledge the report card for each of your children. Our data indicates that many still need to do this! If you need assistance, please let us know. If you have any questions about your child’s progress, never hesitate to contact their teacher.   

Universal Pre-Kindergarten    Attention all families who have children who will be 4 years old by December 1st 2023: The Spencerport Central School District Universal Pre-K (UPK) application is now live on our website (,included%20in%20the%20daily%20schedule.)

SEL and Zones of Regulation  As you know, this year our master schedule includes a 30-minute SEL (Social Emotional Learning) block in which students and staff work together to make connections, build relationships, and engage in community circles.     In addition, students learn strategies for managing and regulating emotions. A common approach throughout the building includes teaching students the Zones of Regulation. One of our school counselors, Mr. Simmons, has compiled a parent resource. Please take a look and ask your child to teach you about zones at home! Click here for more information: Zones of Regulation - Parent Info.pdf   

Cartons for Christmas  Thank you so much for your generous donations for Cartons for Christmas. Our student leaders gathered a great deal of items to donate to those in need. This was a great way to kick off a season of generosity. Thanks again! 

Save the Dates  Holiday Recess - Our holiday recess will take place from Monday, December 26 through Monday, January 2. We will welcome students back to school on Tuesday, January 3.
