Random House Childen's Book author Peggy Eddleman came to our school today for a special presentation about writing and finding your strengths and using them to better the world. She is the author of several book, her most popular being Sky Jumpers, and Sky Jumpers, The Forbidden Flats.
She even had an invention contest earlier this week, where students drew a picture of an invention they thought of. Peggy chose six winners from our 4th, 5th and 6th grades!
Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.
Many Canyon students chose to participate in our Reflections program this year, where the theme was "The World Would Be a Better Place If..."
Pictured are our very own Reflections finalists holding their certificates. Congratulations students!
The 5th graders in Mrs. Patrick's class have been learning all about the regions of the United States.
The cooperative group presentations were the culminating portion following learning how to do research. Each group researched a region of the United States, prepared maps, visuals, a creative way of indicating their region's name, costumes, and active listening guides to be used during presentations for recording of facts by the students. The information learned through the presentations set the stage for all further Social Studies units throughout the year.
Because Nebo's theme this year is "Be the Magic", Canyon faculty and staff decided to dress up as characters from Disney movies for Halloween! What a great job they all did, and they had so much fun dressing up alongside the students!
2nd grade did an amazing job with their Halloween program! They performed it once for 1st and 3rd grades, and once for their parents! Great job students!!
All the students at Canyon had a great time dressing up, showing off their costumes in the costume parade, and participating in their class' parties.
The Utah SNAP (Student Neighborhood Access Program) is a program that promotes students to find safe walking routes to school, and to either walk, bike or scooter to school 4 out of 5 days of the week!
Many of our Canyon students do this, but there were several that kept track of their "walk more in 4" days on a calendar, and turned it in to be entered to win a prize.
Congratulations to our 2014-15 Canyon Student Council Members. Their campaign included writing an essay about leadership, making a poster, and preparing and giving a 1-2 minute speech in front of the entire 4th, 5th and 6th grades.
These grades then voted for their top 3 candidates, and the decision was made!
Last week our 5th graders got to visit the Springville Whitehead Electricity Power Plant. They took them through 3 stations. The first station showed them two big generators and the control room for the electricity. Then they took them to a hands on station, where the class got to generate their own electricity, hold a small plasma ball, and play with a big magnet. The last station was set up for electrical safety. At this station they fried a banana, pickle, and a hot dog. They explained the dangers of electricity, and how to avoid getting shocked. Mr.
Do you walk to school? Lots of our Canyon students do every day, and even more walked today for the National Walk to School Day!
Leo the Lion from Real Salt Lake's professional soccer team came to help the kids get to school safely! The kids were surprised and excited to see him early this morning.
PTA emphasized safety by celebrating Green Ribbon Week for all of our students to stay safe. They put on a coloring contest, and we had some great artwork! Pictured are the kids who won, with their prizes. Students also wore green and signed a safe walking pledge.
