Principal's Welcome

Cannonsburg Elementary School serves 200 students in kindergarten through grade five. The principal of Cannonsburg is Mike Westgate, who is also the Director of Library and Media Services for Rockford Public Schools. Cannonsburg has nine classroom teachers and six paraprofessionals.  In addition, the school has a resource room teacher, a reading specialist, and teachers for music, physical education and art. Special Services personnel include a school psychologist, speech and language teacher, social worker, occupational therapist, and a behavioral interventionist on staff, as well as a gifted and talented program. Technology enhances our curriculum and all students receive instruction in our school computer lab and with other mobile electronic devices and learning management systems. We have a wonderful library where we promote literacy and learning.


Cannonsburg Elementary is fully accredited by AdvancED and the Michigan Accreditation Program. The State of Michigan awards letter grades to all schools through the "Education Yes" program based on test scores and school improvement data. Cannonsburg has been awarded an "A" for the past seven years. All Rockford Public Schools are Blue Ribbon Exemplary Schools, with Cannonsburg receiving its state and national awards in 2001.


We strive for excellence in our education. I hope that this brief introduction to the Cannonsburg Family proves to be helpful, and we want to assure you that we will all do our best to make your child/children and you feel comfortable and "at home” at Cannonsburg.
