Beckett proves that you don't have to be big, to be a Chess Champion. Beckett competed in the Nebo School District Chess Tournament and came out a winner. I've been told that this is not even his first time. Congratulations Beckett!
You know that spring is right around the corner when.....not the groundhog.....but the Jr. High Orchestra and Bands visit Canyon Elementary. Their purpose is twofold; to perform and to recruit. Both assemblies were very well done. It will be a hard decision that our sixth grade students will have to make.
Congratulations to some extra special 5th grade Scientists! Adam, Kimball and Stewart competed in and WON the Nebo School District wide Science Fair. We are so proud of them and wish them well as they prepare to go on to the BYU Science Fair.
If you ever need an idea for a great Valentine Box, visit Canyon Elementary. Here is a sample of the amazing boxes that could be seen in every room on the day of our Valentine Celebration.
The rendezvous was a great. In Miss Hamblin’s class we did a long jump, a hunting game, and a strength pulling game. In Mrs. Perkins’ class we had fry bread with honey and homemade root beer that was clear. We also did a ring toss it was really hard. In Mrs. Cook’s class we played a stick game that was fun. We also panned for gold. Before the Bartering Bash we collected beaver pelts. Then we got to spend them at other people’s shop and we got to earn them too. We all bought a bunch of stuff. It was so fun!
For the box top competition each class brought in box tops for two weeks. We would count them and cut them right along the line. The box tops give us money for our school. We won with over 773 box tops. They gave us cookies and slap bracelets. We were excited to win!
Our teacher, Miss Hamblin, assigned us to bring ice cream buckets to make (paint) drums out of the buckets. Each fourth grade class brought in 30 or more buckets! We took the buckets to the art room. There were different colors to paint them with, but we had to put dish soap in the paint to get the paint to stay on the plastic. When they were painted we waited a day for them to dry. We are using the drums in our 4th Grade program in March. Thanks to Mrs. Jex for helping us complete this fun project.
First, we were donating stuffed animals to poor kids who could not afford them just before Christmas. We were having a contest between all the classes to see who could donate the most stuffed animals. After Christmas they announced that Mrs. Hamblin´s class won at Canyon Elementary. So the high school kids came and brought us donuts for a reward. It was fun to hang out with them, and they were really nice to us. While we were eating donuts we challenged them to a multiplication game our class made up called Doritos. The whole class had a good time.
For our Valentines party the first thing we did was pass Valentines to everyone in our class. After that we had a party. At the party one of the games was where you had to suck up a candy heart with a straw. One of the moms was doing a root beer floats and we also had to figure out a scrambled word puzzle. We also did a lot of other fun games like Don’t Eat Pete, Bingo, and Minute to Win It. We'd like to say thanks to the PTA Moms who planned such a fun party!
Movie night at Canyon! Monday night means family night! All of the families were invited to watch a movie at the school, the movie was Inside out! All the student council members got to dress up as their favorite Inside Out character. there was a costume contest, popcorn, airheads, drinks, and of course, the movie, Inside Out. It was so much fun! There were so many cool costumes for the costume party! The winner of the costume contest got a candy bar, and a coupon. After we had the costume contest, we watched the movie. Everyone got popcorn and airheads.
