    This year 12 students from schools in five states were recognized. We are proud to announce that our very own 8th grader, Porter Davis was one of the winners.
    Porter Davis
    Contestants were asked, “What punctuation error annoys you the most?” They were asked to find an online meme that illustrates the one punctuation error that sets them off, that makes them scream, that gets them into correction mode. They were asked to e-mail that meme to NPD headquarters along with no more than 250 of their most clever, brilliant, dazzling words to make their case why this particular punctuation error not only drives them nuts, but also has occasionally transformed them into the punctuation police.

About Us

  • Welcome to the home of the Canfield Cougars.  

    We are so excited to get the 2018-2019 school year started.  Below are a few statements that outline what Canfield Middle School is all about.
    Our Mission Statement: We invest in each student to prepare, challenge, and advance well educated, resilient and future-ready citizens.  
    Our Vision: Coeur d'Alene Public Schools is an education leader, promoting opportunities for innovation in learning and inspiring excellence in everyone. 
    Academic Goal: We want staff and students to give it their best effort every day.  Our staff uses proven instructional strategies to deliver state standards.  Students are held to high expectations and are given every opportunity to earn high test scores and academic grades.  
    Parent/Community Involvement:  Canfield is fortunate to have a very active Parent Volunteer Organization.  This group of dedicated parents graciously volunteers their time to take on many tasks, such as organizing school activities and raising money for classroom grants.  All Canfield parents are welcome to attend.
    Canfield Middle School is special because… we have a staff dedicated to high student achievement (we also have a beautifully remodeled building).  Our staff believes in a well-rounded education which includes math, reading, language arts, science, social studies, music, art, foreign language, physical fitness, and technology.  Our staff is supported by our students and parents which produces a positive and safe learning environment.
