A Message from the Principal...
Welcome to Ella Canavan Elementary. At Canavan, we encourage students to reach for the stars everyday. While our focus is on student learning, we work to make sure our students have multiple opportunities to explore different activities. With club choices such as chess club, theater club, glee club, bell choir, 24 club, garden club, knitting club, art club and many more, the possibilities of finding an interest are high.
Our PTO is very active at Ella Canavan. Through their dedication, they are able to sponsor many programs at our school. Some of the programs PTO sponsors include MadCap Puppets, COSI, Kidscripts by Magical Theater, agendas for grades 2-5, a book for every student during Right to Read week and field trips for each grade. With their generosity we are able to extend learning beyond the classroom and provide enrichment opportunities for our students. To learn more about our PTO, feel free to come to a meeting. PTO meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Canavan Media Center.
