Welcome to Canterbury Public Schools

Superintendent’s Message:

Hello from the Canterbury Public Schools team!
January Town Newsletter

CPS Mission StatementIn collaboration with our community, the Canterbury Public Schools will develop, foster, and cultivate all students to their highest potential, through rigorous academics within a safe, nurturing, and respectful environment.
Central Office Happenings as reported by Superintendent Dr. Lois DaSilva-Knapton
As I enter my third year as Superintendent, I am continually amazed by the deep sense of community that sparkles in Canterbury.  I love representing the Canterbury Public Schools while attending various Leadership meetings around the state.  From my point of view,  we are well loved.  Our staff and students continue to thrive in our educational setting.    For the second year in a row, the Canterbury Board of Ed. was awarded the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) Board Leadership Award for high standards, dedication, and teamwork.

In addition, one of our teachers at CES, Sergeant Louise Fletcher, pictured below, is an active National Guardsman and was called away for active duty last school year for an extended amount of time. Canterbury Public School was honored as a 2015 Employer Support Freedom Award Finalist in recognition of exemplary support of National Guard and Reserve Member Employees.  Canterbury went above and beyond to support Sergeant Fletcher and her classroom in the her absence. We are so grateful to her and her accomplishments in the National Guard. 

I look forward to the months ahead as we continue to provide our students with rigorous academics as well as enrichment activities.
