Canyon Elementary's PTA has, once again, pulled off an amazing carnival. Students and parents filled the halls and outside fields. Yummy food, fun games, a climbing wall, bounce houses and auctions made for a festive evening. We are grateful for all those who supported the carnival and for our awesome PTA and volunteers who made it a success!
This fall, students were given the opportunity to submit a design for our new Cub Tracks. At Canyon Elementary, staff can give Cub Tracks to recognize students for excellent behavior and being Cougar Cub Strong. These Cub Tracks are then entered into a weekly drawing for prizes. This year a contest was held to come up with a new design. Lydia Dauphinee and Launa Nielsen are amazing artists and won! The new designs have been printed and are currently being used to reward students.
Thanks to the out-pouring of Oreos donated by parents, the entire 6th grade enjoyed their assessment of the moon phases. In fact, they did not even know they were being assessed. It was a fun activity and the donations were definitely appreciated. When we each do a little, a lot an be accomplished.
Students in Mr. Zach Evans' class performed skits on physical vs chemical change. These fifth grade students were divided into groups and wrote skits. They have been exploring the difference between physical and chemical change. As students worked together, they wrote skits to solidify their understanding. The class enjoyed watching each other perform.
