4th and 5th grade students had the chance to learn and review keyboarding skills this year from the district Keyboarding specialist, Ms. Jen Teemont. The students who were in the top 10% with speed and accuracy were invited to compete in the district competition (pictured here). These students each got a prize and certificate. Natalia Serafini (4th grade) and in Taylani Reid (5th grade) received the "golden keyboard" award for being the fastest keyboarders in our school. Congrats to everyone!
Our student council wanted to raise awareness of Earth Day and taking care of our environment and our school. They created a fun mural and had students sign it to commit to helping keep our school grounds clean. Thanks Student Council (as well as Ms. Larsen and Ms. Beckham for being student council advisors).
Our 4th/5th grade choir students had the chance to showcase what they have learned this Spring during a concert this week. The choir, along with small groups and individuals, sang songs from popular Broadway shows. We appreciate the time and effort Ms. Hutchings has put in this year to help students enjoy singing and discover and share their talents.
Ms. Green, our awesome custodian, was recently awarded the Region 10 PTA Service Award for Outstanding Support Staff. Ms. Green not only takes special care of the inside and outside of our school, but also the teachers, PTA, and students. She adds an element of fun and positivity to the lunchroom, the hallways and each interaction she has with students. Thanks for all you do Ms. Green!

We are kicking off the month of April with the Fiesta Days Rodeo Reading Challenge. Yesterday the students learned about all the different events during a rodeo and some even got to participate in roping and barrel racing. Your child will bring home a calendar for them to keep track of the minutes they read and they will be entered into a drawing for prizes at the end of the month. There is also a traveling trophy for the school that has the most minutes read. Let's bring that to Canyon Elementary! Please watch for the calendar to come home and encourage your child to read!
