The mission of the Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation is to connect the financial, material, and social resources of the Canon-McMillan community and the Canon-McMillan School District for the benefit of the students of Canon-McMillan.

Programs and Services

  • The Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation focuses its funding on innovative programs that normally are the dreams of educators and students but are beyond the regular school district budgets. This year added the extra dimension of Covid. While some might look at this experience as a total negative, our Foundation believes that it gave teachers and students different ways of looking at how education can take place. The Foundation has the opportunity to take advantage of what we learned.
  • When the Foundation added the Mac Pac organization it now "feeds" both the minds and bodies of students with food insecurities. Covid interrupted Mac Pac but it has how resumed. The program supplies food over the weekends through an anonymous bagged food supply that is distributed on Fridays. It is a great partnership and together we intend to expand food preparation tools like microwave or toaster ovens to families who need them.
  • This Spring, even with all the original scheduling problems that Covid caused, the Foundation was able to complete its goal to give 9th graders the opportunity to be trained in CPR by a professional trainer and the help of local EMTs. This places more than 300 trained students in the community currently with the ability to help people in cardiac distress. It is one of our goals to find financial support to continue this program every year. The health impact on the community is a gift to all.
  • Our support of the "Zoo in the Classroom" has watched the program include high school Zoology students, their teacher, and their animals travelling to 2nd grade classroom to having the elementary students travelling to the high school to visit the animals be taught there by the high school students. Covid put a stop to travel but undaunted the high school students used the time to design animal videos and create video visits to the classrooms. This program makes the Foundation very proud.
  • The Foundation is creating a network of "Little Libraries" throughout the District. These book filled glass-fronted cabinets are posted outside the building so anyone can take a book and return it. We have had success with our "starter" library and we intend to stock puzzles there too. The Foundation would like to make this a community service project for students to build, paint, supply and service them. The Foundation would need to create a fund to buy the kits and maintain them.
