The last day of school before Christmas Break is always an exciting day.  This year was no different.  It started out with an assembly.  Winners of several contests were announced including the teacher's Ugly Sweater Contest, Gingerbread House competition and fiinally winners were drawn from a box to see who would take those Gingerbread Houses home.  A sing-along with the school choir was enjoyed by all as well as "Jib-Jabs".  The rest of the day was filled with finishing projects, class parties (thanks room moms) and even a service project or two.

A Christmas Without Santa?

Oh no!  A Christmas without Santa would be awful, but don't worry.  In a play by Mrs. Perkin's fourth graders, we learned that Mrs. Claus is perfectly capable of filling in if necessary!  Thanks to all the performers.

Lost and Found

Are you missing any coats, mittens, hats or lunch boxes?  The "Lost and Found" items have been placed on tables in the center hall.  It's great to hear, "Oh yeah!  Here's my coat!"  Come take a look if your lost item has been "lost" and is waiting to  be "found".

Service, Service, Service

It is a great honor to be of service.  Canyon students have participated in not one, but two service projects this Christmas.  Thanks to the Student Council for helping manage these projects. First, Canyon students donated food to a local food bank and second, they were able to work with SFHS Letterman's Club and donate teddy bears to "ride along with a cop" and comfort children in terrifying situations. Service really does make a person feel good!
