Dear Canty Families
I am excited to be joining the Canty school community as the school leader on April 29th. I am a long time resident of the Northwest side. I have been married for 19 years and am the proud mother of three children ages 7, 8 and 17. Over the past 20 years as an educator in Chicago, I have been a teacher, instructional coach and an assistant principal most recently at Prescott School. I am challenging myself to learn more and more names each day.
In addition to all of the fun things happening the end of the school year, students will be taking the NWEA assessment. This is the assessment students will be able to show what they know. We are very excited to see how much our students have learned this year and to celebrate how much each of our students have grown.
As the weather becomes warmer, it is important that the students are in school everyday for the entire day. Please plan appointments and family trips accordingly. Attendance is a large factor in our school’s rating and early dismissals count. Please help the whole Canty community by coming to school for the whole day, every day.
I am looking forward to a great remainder of the school year and getting to know all of you!
