This year's Crystal Apple award goes to 4th grade teacher Mrs. Cook! Mrs. Cook's students absolutely love  her and when you walk into her classroom, you can tell she was born to be a teacher! Her team also loves working with her. She goes above and beyond her job duties and helps others out when they need it, with a smile on her face.

We're lucky to have Mrs. Cook in 4th grade. Congratulations!

The entire school has been participating in the Jump for Heart fundraiser, and did a great job! They earned little rubber ducks with each of their goals and Mr. Harlan agreed to dress up as a duck if they reached the school's goal of $1500.

Well, Canyon surpassed their goal and raised $1800! Mr. Harlan followed through with his promise and dressed as a duck and went around and read "Giggle Giggle Quack" to the classes. What a great sport and for a great cause!

Eastern Arts Dance Assembly

Canyon studetns enjoyed an assmebly put on by the Eastern Arts Dance Assembly. They performed dances from the Middle East, Central Asia, and Russia.

All of the students participated in a dance from Russia in their seat. Many students even got to go on stage and dance with the dancers and several 1st graders helped with some music!

Have you met our "newest" 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Nilson? Mrs. Nilson has actually been teaching for 20 years, but this is her first year at Canyon!

In Mrs. Nilson's family, there are 4 girls and 3 boys. She loves doing crafts, playing piano, watching sports and reading. Her favorite book is The Boxcar Children. Mrs. Nilson's favorite season is winter.

Here are some things her students have said about her: "She does fun math!" "She's nice", " She's funny" "She's a good story reader at the carpet".
