Young Authors

As part of November's literacy month, PTA orchestrated a "Young Authors" challenge, where they challenged students to write a book of their own!

Many of our wonderful students took the challenge, and came up with some great stories!

Pictured here are the students who wrote books. This wasn't a requirement, so all that participated were awarded with a certificate taking the challenge. The books have been displayed in the library, and have been some of the most popular books that other kids want to read.

Jazz Bear at Canyon!

Last week the Jazz Bear from the Utah Jazz came to visit the students at Canyon! Even though he can't talk, he gave a great presentation about having a healthy lifestyle.

His presentation staying away from drugs and alcohol, eating healthy foods, and getting plenty of exercise.

The kids loved it, and were very excited the entire assembly. Thanks Utah Jazz for sending the Jazz Bear to our school! And thanks to Ms. Nilson (1st grade teacher) for arranging for him to come!

3rd grade Christmas Program

The 3rd graders did a great job on their Christmas program! They sang fun songs, recicted jokes and poems, and did some reader's theatre. It was very apparent that a lot of practice went into their performance.

Great job students!

A few weeks ago, 4th grade got the opportunity to go to a Women's basketball game at BYU and cheer on the Cougars for Kids' Day.

They got to meet Cosmo and the team, made it onto the Jumbo Tron (the highlight of the game for many) and had a great time!
