Presidents' Program

Did you know that George Washington had dentures made of gold, ivory, lead, and animal teeth?!

If you talk to a 5th grader, they can tell you more facts about the United States' Presidents!

The 5th graders did a wondering job presenting their program about the presidents of our country.

Each student dressed up as the presidents or their wives and memorized a lot of fun facts about them.

Great job 5th graders!

Goodbye Mrs. Oldham!

There has never been a Canyon with no Mrs. Oldham, and sadly she  will be leaving us! For students who have only attended Canyon, Mrs. Oldham has been their only librarian since kindergarten.  

Mrs. Oldham has been a librarian for 24 years, and at Canyon for 18 years, since it's been open.

She shared her love for books and stories, and inspired students to find information on research papers, find a fun picture book, or to simply escape with some non-fiction. She was very knowledgeable about all books, and also helped teachers find whatever they were looking for!

Mountain Man Rendezvous

4th grade had their annual Mountain Man Rendezvous after learning about the ways of Mountain men and women. Some kids (and teachers) dressed up, parents helped with games, they ate fry bread, and bartered with pellets. All had a great time!
