Due to summer construction, in addition to our school year ending early this year (last day May 27th, 2022 at 12:15), we will also be starting school a week later this coming 2022-2023 school year.

Start of the 2022-2023 School Year:
September 7th: Back to School Night

September 12th: 1st Day of High School (ELEM individually scheduled testing day) 
September 13th: 1st Day of Elementary School



We have received many inquiries regarding summer SAC. Due to the scheduled construction at the school this summer, we have been looking into other options. Unfortunately, we couldn't secure an alternate location. Therefore, we are unable to offer summer SAC this year. Thank you for your understanding.

 


Physical Education Teacher/Volleyball Coach/AD
This is my 25th year at Mabel-Canton. I am the volleyball coach, athletic director, and teach elementary physical education.

I am married to Stephanie and have three daughters, Sadie (16 years old), Sophie (13 years old), and Sahara (11 years old).
Elementary Physical Education
Parents: Just a reminder to make sure tennis shoes with nonmarking soles are being worn in PE class. We are experiencing more black marks on the gym floors then in recent years. Some of these marks are being made by dress shoes or boots. Some of these marks are being made by casual type of shoes that are meant to be used for outdoor activities. Many types of “skate board” shoes are on the market and are quite fashionable, however most of these are not meant to be worn inside on a gym floor. A lot of shoes are clearly labeled whether or not they can be worn inside. If you are unsure please ask a store worker if they should be worn inside on a gym floor. Brands such as Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Asics, Converse, etc. are going to be safe brands. However, you don’t have to spend $100 on shoes for your elementary student. There are many cheaper alternatives that will not leave marks on the gym floors. I also want to remind parents to send tennis shoes to school with their kids. As the weather becomes cooler, more boots are being worn and it’s easy to forget your tennis shoes at home. Please check your child’s backpack each morning to make sure that their tennis shoes are in there. Thank you, Mr. Morken
