These 3rd and 4th graders are our new Student Ambassadors. With the goal of making Canal School a more welcoming place, they have been challenged to look for students at recess or lunch that need someone to play or sit with and reach out to them. They have also started giving new students tours of our school.
Student Ambassadors - back L to R: Nyagoa Yoy, Keegan Holland, Olivia McCartney, Nathias Thompson, and Fatimah Al-Shuwaili. front L to R: Keisha Burns, Ester Wani, Stacia Gagnon, Leah Noone, Claire Filiatrault, and Ondrae Thompson. Missing from photo is Accalia Peterson.
Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Gundersdorf, has been selected amongst her peers as Canal's Teacher of the Year. Mrs. G., as her students call her, will represent Canal in the Westbrook Teacher of the Year process as well as the Maine Teacher of the Year process.
Update - Mrs. Gundersdorf is now a finalist for the Cumberland County Teacher of the Year! We are so proud of you!
Update - Mrs. G has been selected at Westbrook's Teacher of the Year!
We are collecting Box Tops. Please help our school by sending in your Box Tops instead of tossing them in the trash. Each one is worth 10 cents for the school. Your help with collection would be greatly appreciated.
