All students in grades K-6 at Canyon Elementary participate in the Ken Garff Road to Success reading program. If students meet their class reading goal each month, they earn entry slips that they can put in containers by the office for a chance to win a bike. Friday, Nov. 4, 2011, Principal, Mr. Dave Harlan, pulled two names from the entry containers. Jada Bunnell and Tayxa Talbot both won bikes to pick up from the Springville Wal Mart store.
