A miracle happened in Mrs. Money's Kindergarten room this morning. A monarch butterfly emerged from its cocoon at the exact moment that the class was reading about it in a book! What an exciting day!
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.
A couple days ago we had an assembly. It was about a cool science museum. A guy that worked there showed us cool science experiments! Then after we had the assembly, we got to go together as a class and predict what was going to happen! We got to make up our own experiments! It was really fun, some even exploded! The guy also taught us about how to be safe when we test new things together. At the end he gave us a ticket for the museum. I'm really looking forward to going there!
Canyon Elementary Students celebrated Constitution Day, September 17, by attending a flag ceremony and singing patriotic songs. A Color Guard of over 30 scouts from our school presented the Colors of the Flag. The newly elected Student Council then taught us about what the red, white and blue colors represent. We joined our voices together in the Pledge of Allegiance and ended with singing the National Anthem. We are grateful to live in the United States of America.
