DARE is an acronym for Drug Abuse Resistance Education.  This program is taught to 5th graders at Canyon Elementary, and we are proud to say that they have all graduated successfully.  In honor of this, each 5th grader was awarded an official DARE Tshirt and certificate.  Way to go 5th graders.  Remember to just say, "NO!"

On January 21st, 2016, Canyon Elementaryś sixth grade took a trip to BYU campus for Sports Hero Day. The students had a TON of fun participating in and watching various sports activities, including soccer, swimming, gymnastics, and more. At the end, we gathered at a gym and heard speeches from a lot of people, including the one and only Tyler Mangum!! We also were anxious to learn who won the Essay Contest from our school.  Overall, the trip was really great.

Brian Reagon has a hard time with Spelling Bees, but not our Canyon 5th and 6th graders!  On January 29, 48 students squared off during our Second Annual Spelling Bee.  The competition was fierce, but Ben Walker came out on top.  This qualified him to represent our school at the Regional Spelling Bee.  He proved himself to be a true "Spelling Champion" by coming in 7th place out of 54 competitors.  Way to spell Ben!

It's official! There is now a whole new group of Radkids!  Radkids are students who know how to protect themselves from strangers.  Today was GRADUATION DAY!  It is impressive what these kids know and can do.  Radkids does not tell your child what we hope they will do, we actually teach, train and empower children with real skills so they can recognize, avoid, resist and if necessary escape violence or harm in their lives.
