Principal's Message

I am so excited to be a part of the Cannan Elementary Family! As principal, I am committed to cultivating a positive learning atmosphere for all of our students.


Cannan Elementary is located in Willis, TX and is one of nine schools in the Willis Independent School District. Cannan Elementary opened in 1999. Our school was named after Edward B. Cannan, well-beloved band director for Willis ISD from 1969-1978. He organized the district’s first choir and wrote the Willis School Song. He was inducted into the Texas Band Masters’ Association Hall of Fame in 1994. Our school is honored to bear his name and to celebrate his dedication to Willis ISD.


Attendance is very important to the success of Cannan students. Our instructional day begins at 8:25 AM, and a student is counted tardy after 8:25 AM. Dismissal is at 3:40 PM. Please make effort to have your child present for the entire school day. We have great activities going on at Cannan that your child would certainly not want to miss! We also provide attendance incentives that are awarded to our students who are present and on time each nine week period. Attendance is a critical component to improve the likelihood of successful completion of high school, as well as post-graduation success.


Our doors at Cannan are open to your support and participation. We need you, parents and community members, to become a part of the Cannan experience for our students. Please take time to go through the process to become a Cannan classroom volunteer. The process for volunteer approval may be found under the “Parent” column on our website.


Our Cannan teachers and staff are exceptional. We are committed to making a positive impact in your child’s education. Thank you parents, staff, and students for giving me such a warm welcome into the Cannan Family. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Now, let’s have a great  2016-2017 school year!
