Welcome to Canvas

Students in grades 6-12 are using a classroom management system called Canvas. We are very excited about the parent portal where you can find valuable classroom information to support your student such as: assignments, grades, classroom notes, and assessments. Although, all teachers have been working toward total implementation, they are in different stages. Thus, you may find differences depending on grade level and content area.

Canvas does not replace PowerSchool, where we house all final grades, transcripts, and attendance. Your students’ grades will be kept up-to-date in Canvas,  Canvas, will provide a greater wealth of information. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades and assignments or access to additional information, please contact the classroom teacher first.

parent meeting

Canvas/PowerSchool Event for MS & HS Parents
When: Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

Where: Middle School Media Center 6:00pm - 7:00pm

In our continuing efforts to partner with parents for the academic success of students, the district is providing parents with the ability to access Canvas. Canvas is the Learning Management System being used at the middle school and high school. 

Manitou Springs School District is also providing all parents with a PowerSchool account.

The District hopes that these resources will provide you with specific information about your student’s curricula, so you have a better understanding of the work that teachers and students are doing. We hope you use this information to communicate to students that the skills and content identified in these courses are important to master. In addition, we hope this information provides parents with an opportunity to ask students to share ideas and opinions about what is being learned and keep track of attendance.

We like to invite you to Canvas/Powerschool information meeting on Wednesday, September 18th. Both HS and MS parents are invited to this learning event. The event will be held at the Middle School Media Center from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Light refreshments will be served.
