Welcome to the site of
Canterbury Elementary School.
This year’s CES school-wide theme is Civics and Citizenship. Students will be covering topics such as why there are rules at home and at school, what patriotic symbols mean, and how people can effectively work together in groups. They will be learning about our nation’s past, the constitution, and how our government works. This will all tie in well with our social curriculum, Responsive Classroom, where children learn how to take care of themselves, take care of others and take care of our environment. “There’s a tie in to participation that comes from learning about civics at a young age and through higher education. Successful people are those who understand how government works and what it means to be a citizen.”Taylor-Thoma, vice chairperson of the Maryland Commission for Civics Literacy.
