First, we were donating stuffed animals to poor kids who could not afford them just before Christmas. We were having a contest between all the classes to see who could donate the most stuffed animals. After Christmas they announced that Mrs. Hamblin´s class won at Canyon Elementary. So the high school kids came and brought us donuts for a reward. It was fun to hang out with them, and they were really nice to us. While we were eating donuts we challenged them to a multiplication game our class made up called Doritos. The whole class had a good time.

For our Valentines party the first thing we did was pass Valentines to everyone in our class. After that we had a party. At the party one of the games was where you had to suck up a candy heart with a straw. One of the moms was doing a root beer floats and we also had to figure out a scrambled word puzzle. We also did a lot of other fun games like Don’t Eat Pete, Bingo, and Minute to Win It. We'd like to say thanks to the PTA Moms who planned such a fun party!
Movie night at Canyon! Monday night means family night! All of the families were invited to watch a movie at the school, the movie was Inside out! All the student council members got to dress up as their favorite Inside Out character. there was a costume contest, popcorn, airheads, drinks, and of course, the movie, Inside Out. It was so much fun! There were so many cool costumes for the costume party! The winner of the costume contest got a candy bar, and a coupon. After we had the costume contest, we watched the movie. Everyone got popcorn and airheads.
School lunch week is when the students parents come to eat lunch in the cafeteria. When the parent comes he/she has to pay for their lunch. School lunch week is good for the kids because they get to have the experience to go to the school and eat with their kids. School lunch also allows the parents to not make their kids lunch. School lunch week always has a good amount of parents to come and eat with their child. School lunch week is also donating money for the school. So next time you see the lunch ladies tell them thank you for serving us food.
January 21st was the date of the Annual Science Fair held at Canyon Elementary School. There were many interesting Scientific Questions asked and then answered after experimentation and study. The winners will now be presenting their displays to the District. The students representing Canyon in the individual category are; Kolten, Nick, Taeber and Erik. A group of three boys will also be representing Canyon. They are; Adam, Kimball and Stuart. Good luck to each of these scientists.

Miss Hamblin’s class went to the Hearthstone Manor. We sang songs for the elderly. We sang “Jingle Bells,” “We Wish you a Merry Christmas,” and “Rudolph.” Mrs. Morley played her guitar. A few elderly people were singing along. Their voices were beautiful! We gave them some candy canes and a wreath that we each had made. We sang to two different groups. It was fun. Afterward we picked up trash on the way back to the school.
The mining presentation was really fun. We talked about what miners do, mining safety, and how they get samples from the ground (core samples). Everybody got a cupcake and pretended to take core samples. We got a straw and stuck it in the cupcake and took it out. It had three layers. Some people had more chocolate than others, that means they would have more to mine. After that we ate the rest of the cupcake. It was so good!
