Canyon Elementary Student Council sponsored a canned food drive during November. There were 1,153 food items collected. Based on the number of items donated, class names were submitted into a drawing for a party. Ms. Nilson's first-grade class and Mr. Sargaent's sixth-grade class each won a party. We appreciate the generous donations from our students!
Canyon third grader Kanden Zabriskie competed in the Elks Free Throw Contest. Kanden had a great time and won his age level. He gets to move on to compete in Cedar City in January. It was so close that they had to do a quadruple shoot-off to get a winner! Way to go Kanden!
Canyon Elementary students and staff are so appreciative of our veterans. First graders performed songs and poems in honor of our veterans. They did an amazing job performing for their parents. We were also privileged to have members of the American Legion Post 68 come and talk about their service on behalf of our country. We are proud to live in this great country.
Students at Canyon had the opportunity to participate in a reading challenge. Students submitted their nightly reading minutes to be included in a drawing for prizes. Students that read more minutes in the week than Mr. Harlan did, were eligible for the grand prize drawings. Allison Huntsman, Kendra Hemmert, Britton Hutchings, Brynn Tuckett, Hailey Lopez, Alayna Swan, and Braxton Beardall were grand prize winners.
Mr. Harlan visited Mrs. Murphy's classroom and taught the children about chemical reactions in a fun and exciting way. He used Mrs. Murphy's fingerprint to test if "ghosts" were in the room, he combined two different chemicals together that caused an explosion, and he even made pumpkin boogers (slime). We all had a wonderful time learning about the different reactions.
This years student council members are:
Top Row: Brooklyn Painter, Sophie Aroca, Coco Riding, Sophie Haymore, Andie Garner, Mack Bramall
Bottom Row: Alia Fonohema (Alternate), Sadie Disbrow, Alaria Gillespie, Rowen Downey, Dylan Rawe
Student Council went to a Leadership Conference at BYU in Provo with hundreds of other 6th graders on Student Council from across the state. They learned how to be good leaders, how to help others, and how to work together.
