Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community:
Welcome to the new school year!
I hope you all had a great vacation and many opportunities to relax, get rested, and spend time with family and friends. I am sure students are eager to come back to school, meet their new teachers and class mates. We are very excited for the new school year.
It is with a heavy heart that I would like to let you know that I will be retiring from CPS and from Canty as of September 15, 2018. I have spent over 11 great years working with the school community and serving our wonderful students and their families. Canty is one of the highest performing schools in Chicago.
Permit me to take this opportunity to express my personal appreciation for the efforts the teachers, staff, students, and parents have made. We have continued to put emphasis on the quality of academic programs available to Canty students. We have demonstrated that our students are learning well, and they rank high on all measures of academic achievement. I am very proud of our students for their hard work and all accomplishments. I am so happy that during my tenure at Canty we were able to acquire a beautiful and very functional addition with a lunchroom and a kitchen that our school never had. It gives our students a positive and comfortable environment during their lunch breaks.
I want to assure you that Canty School and community has been my second (or maybe even first!) family and will always be. I wish all of you a wonderful school year and all the best in the future educational and personal endeavors.
Łucja Mirowska-Kopeć, Ed. D.
