Constitution Day

Today we are celebrating Constitution Day at Canyon Elementary! Lots of our students are scouts, and dressed in their uniforms, and helped Mr. Ross druing the flag ceremony out in front of Canyon.

All of the students beautifully sang "I'm proud to be an American" and the first graders recited the entire Preamble to the Constitution by memory!



The Heart of our School!

The students planned a secret assembly, and sang a few songs to Mrs. Higginson. They also had each written her a note on a heart, and placed in on some posters for her. The kids have all loved Mrs. Higginson, and they know that she loves each of them.

After 24 years in the district (and 18 years at Canyon, since it opened), Mrs. Higginson is retiring at the end of this year!

Mrs. Higginson always brings a smile to everyone's face, whether it be the students, parents or teachers. She has made Canyon Elementary an awesome place to be!

Congratulations to Ashlyn Alger for winning the Canyon 2014 Spelling Bee!

Each class had previously had their own spelling bee and chose the top 8 spellers. Yesterday the top 8 from each class competed in front of the entire 5th grade and their parents to try to win!

Some of the words the students had to spell were: gregarious, knowledge, carousel,  genre, resevoir, inconsistent, artifical, mediocre, and persuasion.

The winning word for the entire competition was turquoise!

Great job students!
