Canaan Vision 2028
Please take our community survey
The Canaan Vision 2028 Committee would like your help. Please take a few minutes to fill out our Community Survey. This data will help us develop our new Vision for Canaan Schools, and will inform our strategic planning over the coming years.
Paper copies of the survey will be available in locations around town. If you would like us to mail you a copy, please reach out to the school and request one. Our next opportunity to provide feedback will come at our community lunch and forum, which will take place on February 4th.
Fifth Grade Teacher
Our staff corner this month is highlighting our fifth grade teacher, Ms Nicole Jeralds. Nicole joined the Canaan Staff in 2017, and over the last few years has taken part in the Vermont Rural Education Collaborative Mini-grant program. VREC mini-grants go towards paying for student-led projects within schools in Northeastern Vermont. This year Ms Jeralds class will be creating carts stocked with supplies to be used at the school’s family outreach events. The representatives from VREC in charge of awarding the grants said that Canaan’s fifth graders had the best pitch of any group this year. Kudos to Ms Jeralds and the Fifth Grade for their hard work.
On December 5th our school was visited by a couple of members of the Muddy Paws sled dog team. Students got to try out the roles of the dogs and the driver. And of course spend some time petting the hard working pups.
The early release day for January has been rescheduled. It was originally scheduled for January 13th. It has been rescheduled for January 20th. This is also the end of the first semester, so middle school and high school students will start a new term on Monday the 23rd.
Community Service Day
For Veterans Day our 7-12 students did community service events in remembrance of our veterans. The picture shows the 7th graders helping to winterize the community garden.
