Celebrating 65 Years at Canty School
Our Principal, Dr. Mirowska-Kopec, speaking to the Board of Education on behalf of Canty School, July 24, 2013. The Honoring Excellence portion of the Board Meeting allows for the Board President, members, and CPS leadership to formally recognize positive accomplishments of the CPS community. Canty was recognized for excellence in ISAT performance. Our school is number three out of the seven schools in the district where students’ Composite Exceeds scores went up by eight or more percentage points in 2013. Go Cougars!
We need your help! Traffic around the school presents serious safety issues during morning arrival and afternoon pick up. In order to secure student safety, we will be closing Panama at Waveland and Grace at Paris every morning from 7:50 am to 8:05 am. At dismissal, we will be closing Panama at Waveland and Grace at Paris from 2:45 p.m. to 3:05 p.m. This will begin on Monday April 22, 2013.
At 4:15 dismissal from after-school programs we cannot block the street a second time as this is not an option. Therefore we are asking that you:
• Do not park on the school side of the street
• Do not double or triple park
• Drive safely around the school
• Watch for students walking when you drive out of the alley
We have and will continue to ask Chicago Police Department for help with this situation.

SNOW DAY MAKEUPS
To ensure students receive the valuable instructional time that was intended for January 6, 7, 27 and 28, CPS is making changes to this year’s academic calendar. Communications to parents are enclosed and should be distributed to students to take home. Employee communications will be e-mailed to affected employees.
The changes are as follows:
March 28th will become a student attendance day.
June 11th will become a student attendance day.
June 12th will become a student attendance day.
June 13th will become a student attendance day.
June 16th will become the first day of students’ summer break and a non-flex teacher PD day.
June 17th will become a non-flex teacher PD day that will be totally teacher directed.
June 18th will become the flex-PD day for teachers, which means that schools that redistributed the last flex PD day will not have teacher attendance but will have PSRP attendance.
June 23rd will remain the first day of summer programs for all students
