On Monday, September 21, Canyon Elementary students, parents and families enjoyed a Carnival sponsered by the PTA,  Bounce houses and slides, a climbing wall and teacher dodgeball were a few of  the outside activities.  Inside carnival goers were entertained by a fish pond, hoop shoot, face-painting and much more.  There was also a local Rock Band providing music and of course pizza and treats to eat.  Several lucky people went home with prizes from a silent auction.  Thank you to the awesome Canyon PTA for a fun night!

I really lilked when the person from Discovery Gateway Children's Museum came to our school.  One of my favorite parts was when he made a foam guy by putting two ingredients into a Dixie cup.  It foamed out of the cup and made a head.  Then it dried in the head shape.  Another one of my favorite parts was when he made red, green, and orange fire.  He did this by burning different elements.  It was cool when he kept putting a cup on an experiement bottle and it kept shooting off.  It was also super fun when we got to be chemists and mix different things together.
