Have you met our "newest" 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Nilson? Mrs. Nilson has actually been teaching for 20 years, but this is her first year at Canyon!

In Mrs. Nilson's family, there are 4 girls and 3 boys. She loves doing crafts, playing piano, watching sports and reading. Her favorite book is The Boxcar Children. Mrs. Nilson's favorite season is winter.

Here are some things her students have said about her: "She does fun math!" "She's nice", " She's funny" "She's a good story reader at the carpet".

Yesterday was Administrator's Day and Secretaries Day! Sheriff Harlan went western and even got a sweet ride right in front of the school! And the secretaries (Mrs. Chowdhary and Mrs. Hawkins) got a western office makeover and some fun gifts of course.

Stop in to say thank you to our hardworking principal and secretaries! They love our students and keep our school running smoothly!

Mr. Bates' class enjoyed a day at Camp Floyd making candles, adobe bricks, performing military drills, walking through the Sage Coach Inn, looking through the museum, spending time in a one room school house that was built in 1898, and learning what it was like to live during the Civil War.

Also pictured are some students in traditional clothing that was worn during the Civil War.

Westward Movement!

After practicing for weeks and weeks, the 4th graders did an amazing job with their program about explorers coming west and the history of Utah. They taught the audience the history through song, lively dance and spoken word.  Anyone watching could tell they had a lot of fun doing it! Our own Cougar Cub even made an appearance!

Great job 4th graders!
