   On Tuesday, April 17 at 10:15 a.m., all students, faculty and staff  from Canyon Elementary participated in the 2012 Great Utah Shake Out earthquake drill.  More than 900,000 Utahns registered to participate in drills across the state that day.  Students practiced the Drop, Cover, and Hold On earthquake safety procedure either in their classrooms or outside.  How quickly we recover after a big earthquake depends on what we do to practice now.  Pictured are students in Mrs. Savage's third grade as they took cover under their desks during the earthquake drill.
