The truth is we all need encouragement and motivation. Everybody needs somebody who sees the best in you. There are too many people putting others down in this world. Be a positive influence in someone’s life.

PARENTS, A CHILD’S FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT TEACHER!

Parents, if you expect your child to not argue with you, they will not argue with us.

If you expect your child to speak in a respectful tone, they will use a respectful tone with others.


However, if you let your child argue with you, they will argue with us.

If you let your child speak to you in a disrespectful tone, they will take that tone with others.


If you have your child follow rules and hold them accountable for their actions, they will respect and follow the rules that they encounter outside of your home.

If you allow your child to break rules without consequences, they will not do what we ask either.


You see, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We can only build on the foundation you’ve laid at home.

WINTER WEATHER PREP

Please subscribe to Canby School District on FlashAlert.


As the temperatures continue getting colder, it’s time to start preparing for winter weather and the snow bus routes, school delays, or closures that can come along with it.


When inclement weather strikes, the district will make decisions about school as early as possible -- sometimes even the night before, but our goal is by no later than about 5:30 a.m. on the day of the weather event. The message will go out via FlashAlert and will then be reported on most news websites and TV stations.


To make sure you’re set to receive the information, again, please subscribe to Canby School District on FlashAlert. Now is also a good time to update your text preferences online by listing your phone number. For more information, please see our inclement weather page.
