  •  Mission Statement
    The mission of Canopy Oaks Elementary is to provide all stakeholders a safe and positive learning environment that promotes responsibility and critical thinking skills necessary to thrive in our global society.
    A diverse community of life long learners experiencing success while becoming conscientious and responsible members of society.

     School History
    Our school property and the neighborhoods north to Lake Jackson were part of a 691 acre dairy farm owned by C. C. Sellers, who had been a high school teacher. Later, it became a hay and cattle farm with the last cows being sold off due to the drought of 1998.  
    The ground-breaking ceremony was held on July 17, 1997.  New school "I", originally proposed to teach Pre-K to 8th grade, opened to 6th grade with the foundation of another building under the P.E. field for future growth.  The Ribbon cutting ceremony was held in August 1998 and approximately 325 students in 25 classrooms attended Canopy Oaks that first year.  The last 6th grade class was in 2004. Over 700 students are currently enrolled in 36 Pre-K through 5th grade classrooms.
    The students voted to name the school Canopy Oaks after the large trees on Old Bainbridge Road, chose the Cardinal as our mascot, and our school colors of Hunter Green and Khaki.  
    Mrs. Carol Bishop Barineau was the principal until she retired (1998 - 2010), followed by Mr. William (Billy) Epting (2010 - 2012), Mrs. Brooke Brunner (2012 - 2014), Mr. Paul Lambert (2014 - 2020), Mrs. Staci Mortham (2020 - 2024) and the current principal, Mr. Clayton Cloud (2024 - until present).
