Canyon Student Council sponsored a food drive this week. All food brought in will be donated to Tabitha's Way. Classes earned entries into a raffle by bringing in cans of food. The winning class will get a party. We appreciate the generosity of our students and families.
Mrs. Harreld’s class used their creativity and engineering skills to build boats. They needed to float their boat in water. Weights were also added on the boat to see if it would still float. They could go back and rework their boat as needed. They even named their boat.
Remember to bring in canned food this week December 9-13.
Grandparents are the best!!! Amelia Wessman, a 3rd grader in Miss Nuttalls's class, gets to share her grandpa with our class every Monday. Grandpa, as he wants to be called, visits our class every Monday with a new book and lesson. We love listening to his expression and life lessons. We also love that he takes the time to explain things going on in the book and when he lets us use our reading skills as he asks us to share our thoughts and predictions.
Mrs. Perkins took the sixth-grade students into the computer lab for a space mission. The goal of the mission is to set up accurate defense systems around the planets and some moons in our solar system. The students then test the systems through a holographic simulation. Canyon Elementary is fortunate to have an InfiniD Learning Lab at our school which allows students to apply what they learn in class through game-like simulations.
