Random House Childen's Book author Peggy Eddleman came to our school today for a special presentation about writing and finding your strengths and using them to better the world. She is the author of several book, her most popular being Sky Jumpers, and Sky Jumpers, The Forbidden Flats.

Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.

Many Canyon students chose to participate in our Reflections program this year, where the theme was "The World Would Be a Better Place If..."

Pictured are our very own Reflections finalists holding their certificates. Congratulations students!

Regions Presentations in Mrs. Patrick's class

The 5th graders in Mrs. Patrick's class have been learning all about the regions of the United States.

The cooperative group presentations were the culminating portion following learning how to do research. Each group researched a region of the United States, prepared maps, visuals, a creative way of indicating their region's name, costumes, and active listening guides to be used during presentations for recording of facts by the students. The information learned through the presentations set the stage for all further Social Studies units throughout the year.  

Can you feel the Magic?

Because Nebo's theme this year is "Be the Magic", Canyon faculty and staff decided to dress up as characters from Disney movies for Halloween! What a great job they all did, and they had so much fun dressing up alongside the students!

2nd grade did an amazing job with their Halloween program! They performed it once for 1st and 3rd grades, and once for their parents! Great job students!!

All the students at Canyon had a great time dressing up, showing off their costumes in the costume parade, and participating in their class' parties.
