Principal's Message

Dear Big Macs,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families to the 2023-2024 school year! I hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. 

As I enter my first full year in this new position, I am thrilled with the opportunity to lead my alma mater as the principal of the Canon-McMillan High School. I understand the importance of this role, and I will embrace all opportunities to work with educators, students, and families. Working together, we can collectively ensure that every student is successful at the Canon-McMillan High School. Therefore, our faculty & staff will follow the foundation of T.R.U.S.T., the mindset of focusing on "Every Single Student, Every Single Day" and the motto of "Expect Success!"

What is T.R.U.S.T.?

T.R.U.S.T. is a cornerstone of success. This is an acronym that all stakeholders can embrace to ensure all opportunities are met for our students.

T - Talk = Communication is key.

R  - Remember = Remember what our role is and why we are here.

U - Unwavering = We must be unwavering in our pursuit of excellence as Big Macs.

S - Secure = We will have each other's back and will have the same goal in mind.

T - T.E.A.M. = Together Everyone Achieves More.

What does "Every Single Student, Every Single Day" mean at CMHS?

This mindset stems from a student-centered approach to education, in which each student is treated as a unique individual with specific learning needs. It is our goal to have student-centered classrooms and to allow student voice in their educational experiences. By focusing on the student as an individual, we strive for each student to be provided with the necessary skills and resources to not only succeed in high school, but also to leave CMSD upon graduation with the ability to bring their post-secondary plan to fruition. It is our mission to meet the needs of our students and to provide them with the foundations for success in all facets of their lives. 

Why should we "Expect Success" within CMHS? 

As students transition to the CMHS, they come in with the expectations from the CMMS to "Expect the Best." Our team believes that it is important to build on those foundations to ensure that our students find success beyond the classroom with their postsecondary plan. Success can look different for everyone but if we strive to be better each day, then our odds of achieving success will grow every year. What I love about our foundation, mindset and motto is that it is a top to bottom expectation. We will utilize this for our administrative team, staff , students, and families.

Canon-McMillan High School values our family relationships and realizes that in order for the effective implementation of this initiative, we must work together. My administrative team and I are elated to begin working with all stakeholders to make this school year truly remarkable.

We look forward to building lasting relationships with each and every member of the Big Mac Community.
