CF Schools enrollment close to last year
by Ken Haggerty


Two months into the 2017-18 school year, enrollment at the Cannon Falls Elementary School is pretty close to last year, which is a nice surprise with a smaller Kindergarten class this year, reports new Elementary principal Jennifer Chappuis.

Enrollment last year:

Kindergarten: 77.

Grade 1: 83.

Grade 2: 91.

Grade 3: 86.

Grade 4: 91.

Grade 5: 84.

Total: 512.

Enrollment this year:

Kindergarten - 66.

Grade 1: 81.

Grade 2: 84.

Grade 3: 95.

Grade 4: 87.

Grade 5: 93.

Total: 506.

Chappuis says the year is off to a great start. "I am just so impressed with where we are at with our PLC (Professional Learning Community) process," said Chappuis. "The work that is being done on those 1/2 day early releases are intentional with regards to Math and Literacy."

At the middle school/high school, Principal Tim Hodges reports grades 6-12 enrollment ended the 2016-17 year with 648 students and two months into the 2017-18 school year, they are even with that at 648 students.

2017-18 enrollment:

Grade 6: 87.

Grade 7: 96.

Grade 8: 98.

Grade 9: 101.

Grade 10: 86.

Grade 11: 86.

Grade 12: 94.

Total: 648.

"Our PSEO (Post Secondary Education Option) numbers haven't changed much since I've been here," said Hodges about the program that allows high school students to enroll at area colleges. "We have five full and 17 part time PSEO students, which is about normal for us," he said. In Grade 11, there are five PSEO students; in Grade 12 there are 17.

Hodges said last year they had 151 seats taken in AP (Advanced Placement) classes, which are offered as part of the CFHS curriculum and allow students the chance to earn college credits. This year they are down to 121.
