Student Council Election

On Friday, after a week of campaigning with posters, 20 of our sixth graders got the opportunity to give speeches to the upperclassmen at Canyon (4th, 5th and 6th graders).

They all did such a great job, and displayed impressive public speaking skills and creativity!

The upperclassmen then went to their classrooms and voted for their top 3 candidates.

Good job to all who ran for student council. Results to come!

Patriot Day

Today, the the entire school participated in a flag-raising ceremony in honor of 9/11, now known as Patriot Day. The boy scouts at our school were able provide the colorguard for the ceremony, and they did a wonderful job. Together, students, teachers and staff  recited the pledge of allegiance, and then we all sang patriotic songs, while gathered around our country's flag.

The 4th grade classes held their annual Utah Map Walk on Friday. Students were instructed to create a map exhibiting geographical features of Utah, using materials of their choosing. Parents and students of other classes got to walk around the classrooms to see them all. There was some amazing creatvity put into all the maps!

Curriculum Night

Last Thursday night (August 29th) Canyon hosted a Curriculum night. This was a great opportunity for parents to learn more about what their students would be learning throughout the school year. Some grades met with their teachers, while others attended the open literacy class taught by Robin Wheatley (our new reading specialist), or the Student Success session taught by the counselor, Andria Lewis. There was a well attended PTA meeting, and treats for all!

Thanks to everyone who came out! It was a great night!
