Principal's Welcome

Cannonsburg Elementary School serves 225 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 seven full-time classroom teachers, one part-time teacher, a resource room teacher, reading specialist, and teachers for music, physical education and art. Technology enhances our curriculum and all students receive instruction in our school computer lab. We have a wonderful library where we promote literacy and learning. We also have a variety of special service personnel servicing the students, including a district gifted and talented program and special education.

Cannonsburg Elementary is fully accredited by AdvancED, formerly the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges, 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.
