Third Graders at Canyon just completed RadKids. In this class children gain valuable lifesaving skills as they learn to recognize, avoid, resist and escape from danger. In radKIDS, children learn from a comprehensive curriculum that addresses school safety, bullying, home safety, fire safety, bike safety, dog safety, out and about safety, strangers, how and when to call 911, good/bad/uncomfortable touch to name a few. After each subject is taught we practice safety drills so they get a chance to practice what they are learning.
Miss Nuttall's 3rd grade class wrote a friendly letter to Sr. Moss, our intern Principal, also the Spanish teacher at the Jr. High and asked him how to say our colors in Spanish. Well, today he stopped by and taught us Amarillo (Yellow), Verde (Green), Azul (Blue), and Rojo (Red). These third grades can't wait to take Spanish. Thanks Sr. Moss!!!
As part of the DARE program, K9 officers visited with fifth grade students. Below is a list of what students said they learned.
The dogs bite really hard.
I learned that you should never do anything that's wrong. You will never now the price that you will have to pay.
I learned that K-9 dogs are very strong, fierce, and have very sharp teeth. They're also really obedient to commands that the officers gave them. They have an amazing sense of smell.
Don't do drugs; no matter what. You want to get into a mess with those kinds of dogs?
Lions, Tigers, and FOSSILS!!! Miss Nuttall's class invited Mr. Sorensen, from the District Office, to their classroom to ask questions about fossils after reading a book about dinosaurs. Mr. Sorensen brought fossils and answered all our questions. Have you even seen a Megalodon tooth? What about a Utah Raptor? All the students in Miss Nuttall's class can now day they've seen both. Thanks Mr. Sorensen.
