Superintendent's Message

Dear Caniff Parents,                                                       


                As we end the summer vacation for our students, school is quickly approaching. I am thrilled to be among the first to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! As I begin my fourth year serving this incredible school community, I find myself, once again, energized to partner with staff, students, parents and the Hamtramck community to further support our school.

                At Caniff Liberty Academy, I look forward to renewing our efforts together staying on the “Caniff Path.” Throughout the year, we will focus on three core beliefs to service our community, being safe, respectful, and responsible. Together, our students will commit to the principles of character education through action projects to improve our Hamtramck community.

                We will continue to focus on ensuring the core of our daily work with children, teachers and parents is the vision within the Hamtramck community. In order to support our parents and most importantly our students, we have special dates to highlight.

How wonderful it is to be constantly expanding our enrollment and adding new staff members to our dynamic CLA team! We look forward to seeing you at our Welcome Back to School Days, these are the following reminders:

  1. Friday, August 24th 2:00 pm-4:00 pm is Back to School Carnival- there will be food, rides and activities
  2. First day of school is Tuesday, September 4th from 8:30 am-3:35 pm

Whether you are a returning family or a new family at Caniff Liberty Academy, I know that you too will find CLA is a great place to be as we embrace another wonderful year. On behalf of the Caniff Liberty Academy staff, we welcome you to an exciting school year and look forward to working with you as a true partner in your child’s education.
