Champion Challenge

Did you know cowboys think reading is important?  The Champion Cowboys that participate in the Champion Challenge Rodeo held early summer in Spanish Fork recently visited Canyon Elementary.  Their message was #1: It's important to read!  They challenged the students of Canyon Elementary to make sure to meet the reading goal for the month of March.  All students who do that will be entered into a drawing to win tickets to the rodeo!  #2:  Bullying is no good!  They taught what we should do if we witness bullying.  It was a great assembly.

First Annual Art Show

The halls of Canyon Elementary were mysteriously changed to an exceptional Art Museum on Feb. 29.  The artwork filled the walls and created a wonderland for all who attended.  We even had visitors from the Utah State Board of Education, who asked to borrow some of the pieces for display in their building in SLC.  Thanks to the PTA, who planned, hung artwork and provided refreshments for this first annual event.

Dr. Seuss Week Celebrations

Leaping, reading, pretending and having fun were all part of Canyon Elementary's celebration in honor of Dr. Seuss and Literacy.  Monday was "Leap Day", so we "Leaped into Literacy" by wearing green and participating in Musical Lilypads!  We wore crazy socks in honor of the Dr. Seuss Book "Fox in Socks" and another day was dress like a Dr. Seuss character.  A favorite tradition at Canyon Elementary is Parent's and Pastries.  Parents and students lined our halls before school started eating donuts and reading together.  The week culminated with a readathon.  Canyon School loves literacy!

Beckett proves that you don't have to be big, to be a Chess Champion.  Beckett competed in the Nebo School District Chess Tournament and came out a winner.  I've been told that this is not even his first time.  Congratulations Beckett!

Orchestra and Band Visit Canyon

You know that spring is right around the corner when.....not the groundhog.....but the Jr. High Orchestra and Bands visit Canyon Elementary.  Their purpose is twofold; to perform and to recruit.  Both assemblies were very well done.  It will be a hard decision that our sixth grade students will have to make.

Fourth Grade Rendezvous and Bartering Bash

The rendezvous was a great. In Miss Hamblin’s class we did a long jump, a hunting game, and a strength pulling game. In Mrs. Perkins’ class we had fry bread with honey and homemade root beer that was clear. We also did a ring toss it was really hard. In Mrs. Cook’s class we played a stick game that was fun. We also panned for gold. Before the Bartering Bash we collected beaver pelts. Then we got to spend them at other people’s shop and we got to earn them too.  We all bought a bunch of stuff.  It was so fun!

Box Top Competition

For the box top competition each class brought in box tops for two weeks.  We would count them and cut them right along the line. The box tops give us money for our school.  We won with over 773 box tops. They gave us cookies and slap bracelets.  We were excited to win!

Drums

Our teacher, Miss Hamblin, assigned us to bring ice cream buckets to make (paint) drums out of the buckets. Each fourth grade class brought in 30 or more buckets! We took the buckets to the art room. There were different colors to paint them with, but we had to put dish soap in the paint to get the paint to stay on the plastic.  When they were painted we waited a day for them to dry. We are using the drums in our 4th Grade program in March. Thanks to Mrs. Jex for helping us complete this fun project.
