Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community:
I hope you all had a fine vacation and are looking forward with enthusiasm to the new school year. With this letter I would like to officially welcome you to our school.
Now starting my tenth year, I would also like to use this letter to tell you why I am so pleased to be part of this school. Canty School is considered to be among the finest in the state. Our school is routinely recognized for educational excellence. Such recognition doesn’t occur by chance. It is the result of two things: motivated students and dedicated staff members. I am a strong believer that the real strength of Canty lies in the collective talents of an exceptionally well-trained and dedicated teaching staff, involved parents, and hardworking students.
We are celebrating the opening of a new addition which houses spacious lunchroom, state-of-art kitchen, Music room, Computer lab and fourteen classrooms. Finally, our students do not need to eat in the auditorium or walk from modular units into the main building for specials. We are under one roof! August 28, Mayor Emanuel joined us for the official ribbon cutting ceremony. It was a great, well attended celebration. On September 20th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, we will hold a Grand Opening of the new addition. Please stop by to see the new building.
This year’s school motto is: Embracing Our Differences. Changing the World. Since we are a diverse community, we would like to enjoy our similarities and learn from our differences. Our academic focus this school year is “Differentiation, Socio-Emotional Learning, and Accountability”. Our goal is to provide all students with the opportunity to excel in academics, athletics, and fine arts so that they may become positive, contributing members of our school and community.
I look forward to working with you this school year. Let’s make it the best one ever!
Łucja Mirowska-Kopeć, Ed. D.
