Canyon fourth-grade students study Utah history in their social studies curriculum.  As a culminating activity, they had May 22, 2013 as their "Pioneer Day".   Students came to school dressed like pioneer children and they got to participate in pioneer activities throughout the day.  One of the activities was a potato peeling contest.  Students got to see how quickly they could peel a potato.   Parent helpers came to help, too.  They collected all of the peeled potatoes and cooked them in Dutch ovens for the students and teachers to enjoy.
