Congratulations to Mrs. Oxborrow who received a grant from The Nebo Foundation. She received $200 to go towards an iPad for her Kindergarten classroom!
To celebrate Easter, Kindergarten participated in their Annual Egg Drop! Students put a raw egg in various containers, using any matierals they could hoping that their egg won't break! Then our brave principal, Mr. Harlan stood on the roof of the school and threw the eggs off one by one!
The kids (and parents) had so much fun and loved seeing if their egg stayed in tact or broke!
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Also zebras, elephants, crocodiles and countless other animals performed in Kindergarten's zoo program here at Canyon. They all did such a good job performing for their parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters and everyone else that came to support them. Some of the parents also joined in, and made some great monkeys!
The students learned a ton of songs, with dance moves to go along with them. They also each had their own animal with speaking parts to go along with them!
Great job Kindergarten!
This month our spotlight is on our facilitator: Sarah Blackhurst!
Here's a little bit about her:
Where you grew up: In Payson, UT on an orchard. We grow peaches, apples and cherries. I absolutely loved growing up on a farm.
Family: I grew up with 5 brothers and 0 sisters. I am a lucky mama of 2 boys: Will, 8 and Owen, 5
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Ed from Utah State University, Master's Degree in Education from Southern Utah University, Administrative License from Southern Utah University.
Congratulations to the 3rd graders for graduating from the radKIDS program! Every week for an hour, 3rd grade has been working hard on learning safety skills and physical defense skills to keep themselves safe.
They've learned that 1. No one has the right to hurt me! 2. I don't have the right to hurt anyone else unless they are trying to keep me from safety, and then I can stop them! 3. If someone does hurt me, it's not my fault and I can tell!
Thanks to all the parents and students who contributed to our annual Box Top fundraiser!
Here are the grade level winners:
K: Money, 1st: Snell, 2nd: Marsh, 3rd: Brindley, 4th: Perkins, 5th: Nielsen, 6th: Nuzman

Great job everyone!
And a special thank you to Cora Barrett and Karen Ferrara from the PTA who helped organize, promote, cut and count the boxtops. It was a lot of work!
