   Canyon fifth-grade teachers made arrangements for an Earthquake Display to be set up at our school.  This display told students that Utah is "Earthquake Country" and large earthquakes are possible anywhere in Utah, especially along the Wasatch Front.  History shows that earthquakes strike every 350 years - the last one here was about 350 years ago.  This display of pictures, graphs and charts, gave students great information and a better understanding of earthquakes.

   Students from Canyon Elementary were entertained and amazed March 9, 2012, as they watched the Jump Rope for Heart assembly put on by students from Harvest Elementary in Saratoga Springs.  Jump Rope for Heart is an American Heart Association event.  Participants showed their jump rope skills while pop music played.  Canyon students got involved by singing the lyrics to the songs as they cheered for the jump rope routines.  Students also learned that jumping rope is a healthy activity for their heart, but some boys and girls have special hearts and need help so they can grow to be happy a

   Canyon third-grade students from Miss Danika Nuttall's class, participated in a Rad KIDS safety program.  Rad KIDS is a personal empowerment safety education program for children.  It is taught by certified instructors.  The Rad KIDS goal is to empower children with an understanding of what their options are and to train them with the skills they need to be safe.  At their graduation, Officer Jared from the Utah County Sheriff's Department, wore a padded suit and pretended to be a stranger.  Each student got to use their Rad KIDS' skills to demonstrate how they could get away from him.
