Submitted by calleen.argyle on Wed, 01/26/2011 - 14:11

   Second grade students at Canyon Elementary have been working very hard to learn their addition math facts.  As an incentive to pass their math facts,  the second grade teachers told the students they could earn a banana split party as their reward.  Students got to assemble a banana split picture where each part of the picture represented a math fact that they had learned.  On Wednesday, January 26, they got to complete their pictures and have their banana split reward party.

     First grade students in Miss Hutching's class have been sharing Christmas traditions.  Miriam Pendleton and her mother, Mrs. Becky Pendleton, shared their Christmas tradition of making peppermint candy.  Mrs. Pendleton showed the class how she melts the white chocolate in the microwave and crushes the candy canes in her blender.  Then she mixed the two together and poured the mixture onto a cookie sheet to cool before breaking into pieces.  She had some candy that was already cool and a recipe card that she gave to each of the students in the class.
