Canyon Elementary recently held the Student Council Elections. Eleven were chosen out of the 36 students that volunteered for that responsibility. Each student wrote an essay explaining why they felt like they would be a good Student Council member. After reading the essays, twenty students were then asked to give a speech in an assembly for all the fourth-sixth grade students. Everyone of these speeches was exceptional. It was a hard choice, but the final student council members were announced on Monday, September 19. Congratulations!
US Synthetics came and taught the 6th grade about PDCA which stands for plan, do, check, and adjust. PDCA helps you with daily problem solving. We did a project for PDCA and there were two rounds. The first round you built a tower using index cards and the goal was for the tower to be able to hold a package of index cards. The second round you had to follow the PDCA process and you had to figure out what would work or what wouldn’t work and whatever didn’t work then you wouldn’t try it again. Also, you would try and improve on your height you got for your tower.
