No School: Thanksgiving Break will be Nov. 27-Nov. 29.
First-graders finish out the week with a good book and some singing! Literacy month gave students time to snuggle up with a good book at our readathon. We listened to poetry and we wrote poetry. Thanks, PTA for letting us have so much fun! We love books!
Canyon's PTA sponsored our Literacy Month with reading contests, a book swap, and a poetry slam. Students in fourth through sixth grade wrote poems and entered them into a contest. The winners were able to read their poems during an assembly. Three BYU students came and shared their poetry with the students. Congratulations to all the winners and those that participated. Keep writing and being creative!
BYU's Dunk Team and volunteer student athletes came to Canyon for an assembly. They talked to the students and faculty about being strong mentally, socially, and physically. They emphasized that it's okay to make a mistake. The key is to keep on trying and not to give up. They also emphasized the importance of teamwork. The students loved the assembly, especially watching Cosmo and our own Mr. Evans slam dunk the ball!
We are proud to be an American! Our local Veterans visited our school for Veterans day and Miss Nuttall's class took the opportunity to color a picture and write them a kind note. Not only did the Veterans smile and enjoy the notes, but the third graders beamed with pride as they participated in this kind act. It's amazing what a little kindness can do for all involved.
Students in Miss Washburn's class celebrated America's Independence this week at the end of their Revolutionary War unit. Students wrote about America and what they have learned in Social studies. They also played a Revolution Quiz game. In addition, they participated in some patriotic activities and had a treat!
Students in sixth grade are completing an analysis of the planets. They are comparing and contrasting the number of moons, orbital periods, temperatures, and diameters.
Fifth-grade students held a States Fair on Monday, November 11, 2019. Each student chose a state to learn about and then created displays so others could learn about their state. Students and families came to the gym to see all of the creations. Great job!
Mrs. Harreld's third-grade students have been disguising turkeys for the upcoming holiday. They then get to write about the disguise that saved that turkey. There are some clever cover-ups that have been used.
First grade has been learning about the democratic process. We wrote speeches and made posters to decide whether turkey should be our main dish for Thanksgiving dinner or not. Then we held a class election and voted. Our results were tabulated and those exercising their right to vote chose to eat turkey!! It was a close race decided by just 2 votes!
