Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community:
I hope you all had great and relaxing vacation and now are looking forward with enthusiasm to the new school year. With this letter I would like to officially welcome you to our school.
Starting my eleventh year as a principal at Canty, I would 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 three things: motivated students, supportive families, and dedicated staff. 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.
On August 22, Mayor Emanuel surprised us with his visit at Canty to announce our great accomplishments in NWEA results for English Language learners as well as all other successes.
This year's school motto is:
DIVERSITY: EMBRACE IT, SHARE IT, CELEBRATE IT
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 would, like to invite you to our Open House/Curriculum Night which will take place:
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 @ 6:00 – 7:30 for grades PK-3
Thursday, September 21, 2017 @ 6:00 – 7:30 for grades 4 – 8
On both days, we will start with a short assembly for parents in the Auditorium which will start at 6:00 pm sharp. From the auditorium you will be able to go and visit classrooms. The first session will start at 6:30 pm and the second session at 7:00 pm. Hope to see all of you at the Open House.
I look forward to working with you this school year. Let’s make it the best one ever!
Łucja Mirowska-Kopeć, Ed. D.
