We are proud to be an American! Our local Veterans visited our school for Veterans day and Miss Nuttall's class took the opportunity to color a picture and write them a kind note. Not only did the Veterans smile and enjoy the notes, but the third graders beamed with pride as they participated in this kind act. It's amazing what a little kindness can do for all involved.

First grade has been learning about the democratic process. We wrote speeches and made posters to decide whether turkey should be our main dish for Thanksgiving dinner or not. Then we held a class election and voted. Our results were tabulated and those exercising their right to vote chose to eat turkey!! It was a close race decided by just 2 votes!
Are you a book lover? If so, 3rd Grade has you covered. We have been working hard on our Halloween Character Book Reports. We were asked to read a chapter book and turn a pumpkin into our main character. We found 28 books that we either LOVED or liked and shared them with our classmates. So, if you are looking for a book suggestion just ask the 3rd graders at Canyon Elementary.
Sixth-grade students have been studying the galaxy. One goal in this unit is to help students analyze and understand how far our planets really are from the earth and from the sun. They do this through detail research, rocket sketches, rocket building and launching of the rockets.
