Lions, Tigers, and FOSSILS!!! Miss Nuttall's class invited Mr. Sorensen, from the District Office, to their classroom to ask questions about fossils after reading a book about dinosaurs. Mr. Sorensen brought fossils and answered all our questions. Have you even seen a Megalodon tooth? What about a Utah Raptor? All the students in Miss Nuttall's class can now day they've seen both. Thanks Mr. Sorensen.

Visiting Author

Spelling Bee

Canyon Elementary fifth and sixth graders had the opportunity to participate in a school spelling bee. Each class held their own individual contest and sent 8 students to the school spelling bee. Those 48 students did a great job as they competed Friday, February 2, 2018. The final two contestants were Emily Wilkins and Rebecca Morales. They correctly spelled words round after round. The spelling bee lasted over 2 hours! In the end, Rebecca Morales won the contest. Rebecca now moves on to compete at a regional spelling bee. We are so proud of all of the participants.
