At home, I sit in my big soft chair and enjoy the communications with my students and their parents! I am missing all of my students.
I miss seeing my students and hearing what they have to say. I miss having them share solutions to math problems with the whole class and I miss our read aloud and making mind maps.
I admire how both parents and students have adjusted to at-home learning. It has been so fun to see the cute, fun pictures and hear the recordings in response to the online learning activities. Students have been amazingly flexible and terrific problem solvers with this new way of learning. I am so proud of your efforts and I send my appreciation for all the parental support.
Canyon Elementary students had prepared for an Art Gallery Night on March 16. Unfortunately, it was canceled along with our school dismissal. Our art teacher, Mrs. Humphreys, students, and teachers worked so hard to prepare for this event. These pictures are a sampling of the art on display that night.
We are now in our second week of school dismissal. It is now time for Utah schools to show our Utah School Spirit.
Please join us in Utah School Spirit Week.
Post a selfie using #utahschoolspirit and tag your school #Canyoncubs or district on Twitter/Instagram.
We want to hear from students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members. Have fun!
