Orientation & Schedule Pickup

Thursday, August 16th at 6pm




On behalf of the entire staff of Canton Middle School we look forward to welcoming you back for the 2018-2019 school year.  It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and it’s about time to return to school.  The first day of school will be on Monday, August 20th at 7:55 AM. Monday the 20th will be a 12:30 dismissal, the following school days will be a regular schedule from 7:55am until 2:50 PM.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve to their highest potential.  We recognize that in order for your child to be successful, children need cooperative support from both home and school. Our teaching staff is excited to partner with you this year to make sure that your child receives the best education possible.  It is the combined efforts of parent’s enthusiasm and involvement from home and a teacher’s ability to help them learn at school that inspire children to do their best.

To help start this partnership this year we are going to have an Open House on Thursday, August 16th at 6pm.

Below is a brief example as to how open house will be conducted.  Please be aware that this is a special time that staff has set aside to provide information to every parent and student at one time.  This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and and have a better understanding of Canton Middle School’s processes and rules that are in place this year to help your child be as successful in their education.

Please note, in order to help staff get prepared for the start of school, this orientation will be the only time schedules will be given out.  Parents, please be prepared to stay through the entire meeting in homeroom to receive your child’s schedule.  The entire meeting and rotation should only take about and hour and a half.

If you are unable to attend this orientation your child will need to report to B Building gym upon arriving to school on the first day.  Staff will be in there to assist your child in locating their homeroom class where they will be given a copy of their schedule.
