Thank you Coach Canning for allowing your athletes to stop by your room every morning to drop off their bags and chat for a few minutes, and for providing them a lifestyle incorporating discipline and a hard work ethic. They love the compliment you provide once a year that stays with them for a long time :) They realize you truly mean it whenever you give it!
We appreciate all that you do for your students and athletes, helping us all to be a PROUD SKYHAWK!!
