Do you love telling stories, writing stories, or listening to stories?! Well, we love all three at Canyon Elementary and today we had the opportunity to listen to national storyteller, Donald Davis. He kept us captivated and laughing as he shared how to hide his peas and carrots!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Submitted by kalani.reed on

Canyon PTA is amazing! They sponsored Teacher Appreciation Week the last week of January. Breakfast, lunch, trail mix bar, treats, and a flashlight were all part of this wonderful week. The PTA committee decorated the faculty room and front entryway. Teachers and staff were treated to a massage. The week had a camping theme and we were definitely happy campers. We appreciate our PTA and all they do to make Canyon such a great place.
