Mr. Bates' 5th grade class and Mrs. Olson's 2nd grade class got together this week for a fun Halloween Party!

They read some good Halloween books, drew some pictures, and shared some treats! They are excited to do it more often!

Walk more in 4 Winner!

The Utah SNAP (Student Neighborhood Access Program) is a program that promotes students to find safe walking routes to school, and to either walk, bike or scooter to school 4 out of 5 days of the week!

Many of our Canyon students do this, but there were several that kept track of their "walk more in 4" days on a calendar, and turned it in to be entered to win a prize.

Student Council

Congratulations to our 2014-15 Canyon Student Council Members. Their campaign included writing an essay about leadership, making a poster, and preparing and giving a 1-2 minute speech in front of the entire 4th, 5th and 6th grades.

These grades then voted for their top 3 candidates, and the decision was made!

Last week our 5th graders got to visit the Springville Whitehead Electricity Power Plant. They took them through 3 stations. The first station showed them two big generators and the control room for the electricity. Then they took them to a hands on station, where the class got to generate their own electricity, hold a small plasma ball, and play with a big magnet. The last station was set up for electrical safety. At this station they fried a banana, pickle, and a hot dog. They explained the dangers of electricity, and how to avoid getting shocked. Mr.

Do you walk to school? Lots of our Canyon students do every day, and even more walked today for the National Walk to School Day!

Leo the Lion from Real Salt Lake's professional soccer team came to help the kids get to school safely! The kids were surprised and excited to see him early this morning.

PTA emphasized safety by celebrating Green Ribbon Week for all of our students to stay safe. They put on a coloring contest, and we had some great artwork! Pictured are the kids who won, with their prizes. Students also wore green and signed a safe walking pledge.

 

ye Royal Castles!

6th graders are learning about castles in the middle ages and then they designed and built their own castles!  Mrs. Sommerfeldt's social studies classes have enjoyed building the castles and showing some of them off. All 6th graders will eventually build a castle this year as they rotate into Mrs. Sommerfeldt's class, so tell your student to start thinking of ideas now!
