Mr. Gottheimer’s Weekly Update #1 (8/29)


Welcome to the first week of school!


One of our district goals is to improve communication home so I have decided to post a weekly update about what is happening in each chorus class here at Canton Middle & High School.  I encourage students and parents to visit their respective class webpages at regularly and email or phone with any questions as this is merely an additional way to know what’s happening in the chorus classroom.  I look forward to feedback about this and future posts!
