Hanawalt Elementary is excited to announce that we are becoming a Canvas school.  What does this mean?  Canvas is a learning management system that supports your student’s learning and provides a way for a parent to connect to the learning taking place.  As we are just starting on this journey, we expect many different levels of usage by teachers, students, and parents.  Please be patient as we are learning how to best support your learner.
