CJH Choir earns superior scores

Canton Junior High Choir has been busy this year. Forty seventh and eighth grade students participated in the Solo and Ensemble in October 2016, with 29 of them getting a superior score.  On Feb. 23, 20 sixth graders participated in SoloFest at the CJH and received Superior scores.

Canton is in a new Region, which is very tough, but one of our seventh graders, Cathrine Hook, made it into the All-Region choir.

The Canton Junior High Choir is performing in the Region 3 UIL Concert and Sight-Reading competition on Tuesday, April 4.

A spring concert will be held Monday, May 1. We would like to invite the public to come out and watch the choir perform.

The CHS Bachelors in Black

As parents of seniors at Canton High School, we are here to support our students as they complete their high school journey and graduation ceremony with the excitement and joy it is intended to have. 
Too many times an evening like graduation ends in tragic loss due to poor choices driven by the excitement of celebration.  Project Graduation exists to create a safe and celebratory environment for our graduates on their most special night.  Not surprisingly, this is a costly proposition.  But with your help and that of our generous donors and sponsors, we can provide this safe and fun environment at Shenaniganz in Rockwall.
