Diamond Fork Canyon was a great field trip.  First we went on a hike.  We saw lots of cows (and a few cow pies), and got to go in a tepee.  We learned about elk and deer.  Next we learned about birds and many different things about feathers, like how the boys are colorful to attract female birds and the girls have brown feathers to blend in to protect their babies.  We identified birds in a book.  After lunch we went on a scavenger hunt for leaves.  We found a lot of different leaves.  Last we tested the water in the river.  Then we put on huge waders, got in the stream, and caught bugs wit

PTA "Walk to School Day" is a Huge Success

How do you get to school each day?  Well, on October 7, Canyon Elementary had an extraordinary amount of students walking.   It was the PTA Sponsored "Walk To School Day".  Before each student entered the school they were greeted by a Student Council Member and a PTA representative and were given a green ribbon and a granola bar.  Those who entered the school at the front doors were also welcomed by the famous Cougar Cub.  What a great reminder of how to be safe and healthy.  Thank you PTA.
