A Big Thumbs Up I would like to give a big thumbs up to all of the students, parents, and teachers for being flexible and having patience while we navigated through these first two weeks of schools. Parents and teachers have been a good example of teamwork for our students by adapting to this new type of learning and working together for the benefit of our students at Caneyville Elementary. We know it has not been easy at times, but we appreciate all of the grace and collaboration to help make this year successful. Mr. Basham (Thumbs up picture, c/o Mrs. Helm, was created out of words our Caneyville faculty and staff felt described the first two weeks of school.)
