Canyon Elementary students enjoyed celebrating Dr. Seuss Day. We started the day with "Parents and Pastries." Families enjoyed a donut and milk in the cafeteria and then found a spot to read together. We had a schoolwide readathon with guest readers. In addition, students were able to wear hats for the day. Many classes had additional activities to honor Dr. Seuss. It was a festive day.
Fifth and sixth-grade students participated in Canyon's annual Spelling Bee. Forty-eight finalists from fifth and sixth-grade competed for the championship. Words such as sagacity, relinquish, chilblains, and treacle were spelled or misspelled until we had a champion. Congratulations to our Spelling Bee champion, Bayler Broadbent. Other students who placed were: second place-Gavin Bown, third place-Mack Bramell, fourth place-Olivia Nelson, and fifth place- Jackson Wilson. We are proud of all of our spellers!

Feburary 19-22, 2019: Please bring your used or new shoes to the school for the shoe drive. There will be boxes by the office to drop them off.
These shoes will benefit families in poverty stricken countrues by allowing women to sell the shoes and build micro-economies within the cities they live.
This week, our fabulous PTA sponsored a Teacher Appreciation Week. We were definitely spoiled! The decorations were amazing. We were treated to a massage, breakfast, lunch, Italian sodas, daily drawings for fantastic prizes, cookies, candy, and a spa certificate. We are so grateful for the support that our PTA gives us. Thank you so much!!

This year's wax museum was amazing. Fifth-grade students learned about the presidents of the United States of America. Each student dressed up as a president or president's wife and gave a speech highlighting important events and facts about their assigned president. All classes and parents were invited to attend one of their performances. It was a great experience for all!
