Canyon Elementary School was priveleged to have the Kinnect Dance Team from BYU come to our school. The day began with an assembly entitled "Night in the Museum". Several students were invited to participate in some of the dances. For the rest of the day, each class was able to spend an hour with one of the dancers in a class specially geared to their grade level. It was a great opportunity and was enjoyed by all.
Miss Jamie Hamblin was honored as the Canyon School Teacher of the Year. We are very lucky to have her at our school. The following is a quote from the Nebo School District Webpage:
We have a fabulous PTA at Canyon Elementary. Please go to the following website and take the survey for them. Thanks!
In library grades 3-6 have spent the last several weeks writing the story to picture books that have no words. This week we are sharing the stories. We have some great authors at Canyon Elementary.
It's hard to believe that most of these 6th grade students have been playing a string instrument less than a year. The Orchestra Concert held at Canyon Elementary was truly inspiring. For the past year these students have been coming early to school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to learn from Mrs. Wangsgard. It has paid off. They sound amazing!
It was so much fun painting with colored shaving cream. When you can learn something and have fun, that's called success.
Today we had to say good bye to Mr. Ross, the world's greatest custodian! He will be taking a new job at the District Office. We will miss him very much. At an assembly, the students said their farewells and got to meet the new custodian, Miss Green. We are excited to have her join the Canyon Cougars.
The sixth graders have been learning about WWII in Social Studies. As a tribute to Gail Halversen, they told the story of the Candy Bomber to their reading buddies and then "candy bombed" them. Thanks to Mr. Ross who actually dropped the parachutes.
It's a momentuous day when Kindergarten Kids get to eat school lunch for the first time. To make things even better.... it was a PIZZA Day. Now that they have practiced, it won't be nearly so scary next year when they are in first grade.
Summer will be here before you know it. There will be no excuse for boredom with the "Play Unplugged" and "Library Fun" programs sponsored by Spanish Fork City. The students at Canyon Elementary School recently learned all about these two great programs. If you want more information contact the city :)
