First grade has been learning about the democratic process. We wrote speeches and made posters to decide whether turkey should be our main dish for Thanksgiving dinner or not. Then we held a class election and voted. Our results were tabulated and those exercising their right to vote chose to eat turkey!! It was a close race decided by just 2 votes!
Are you a book lover? If so, 3rd Grade has you covered. We have been working hard on our Halloween Character Book Reports. We were asked to read a chapter book and turn a pumpkin into our main character. We found 28 books that we either LOVED or liked and shared them with our classmates. So, if you are looking for a book suggestion just ask the 3rd graders at Canyon Elementary.
Sixth-grade students have been studying the galaxy. One goal in this unit is to help students analyze and understand how far our planets really are from the earth and from the sun. They do this through detail research, rocket sketches, rocket building and launching of the rockets.
More than one hundred Canyon students participated in the National PTA Reflections Contest. This year's theme was "Look Within." Students could enter an art project in the following categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. More than twenty-five students won at Canyon and will move on to the district level competition. In addition, twelve students received an Award of Merit or honorable mention for their projects. We are proud of all those who participated in this contest.
For the month of October, we had a parent firefighter from each of our classes come in for a visit. Presenting were Andy Hall in the morning and Kevin Wilkey in the afternoon. They each shared with us some tips on how to be fire smart and safe. It was very fun and we appreciate such great parent helpers!
