Music is intrinsic to the complete human being and therefore must be cultivated in all students.
Through creating, performing, and responding to music, we will generate an autonomous, musical lifestyle evidenced through beautiful, tuneful, and artful expression.  These Artistic Experiences and meaningful opportunities will enrich students’ lives as well as the lives of others.
All elements of music require experience above explanation to glean from them the highest artistic experiences.  The repertoire of the Canterbury Music Programs must be of the highest quality to encourage these deep musical experiences and open the doors of life’s later pursuits that we never knew were closed.

Health and Physical Education are requirements for all students grades 5-8. In Dr. Helen Baldwin Middle School Physical Education classes, all students learn, practice and enjoy demonstrating competencies in a variety of skills relating to team activities, games and sports. Students are assessed through skill development, cognitive knowledge and effective behavior relating to how maturely they work together within team settings. 

Safety is my #1 priority, and all students are required to wear closed toe sneakers and come prepared with a change of Physical Education clothes for class. To be exempt from P.E. class, and given an alternate assignment for any period of time, students must submit a written request from a physician to the school nurse. A note from a parent/guardian requesting a student be excused from class for one day must state the reason and needs to be successfully approved by the school nurse before the student reports to P.E. class.

Students are financially responsible for damage to and/or loss of library materials. Any student who fails to return library materials or does not pay for lost or damaged materials will be denied his/her borrowing privileges.
