It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents. But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program for fifth-grade students and their parents. Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. Please follow this link for event locations and times.
May the force be with you! Students at East Midvale attended a Star Wars themed assembly last week where the new On-Time Alliance incentive program was launched! Baby Yoda, Rey and Luke Skywalker made special appearances!
GOAL: all students at grade level doors at 8:15 am ready to greet teachers at 8:20 am and begin the school day. Each class has an attendance goal and when it is reached, students can add a piece to the Star Wars Lego set. When the Lego is completely built, the whole class will have a special party to recognize and celebrate their commitment to being on time to school.
Thank you parents for all your past and continued efforts to help your student attend every day and be on time. It makes a huge difference when teachers can start the day with everyone on time and ready to learn.
Canyons District preschools are evidence of the power of play. It may look like the children are just hopping, dancing, singing, coloring and laughing together — but studies have shown that structured play can hone a child’s language, math and social skills.

The CSD preschools, which follow an evidence-based curriculum that line up with the core standards of learning at the kindergarten level, cost $100 per month for students attending two days per week and $200 a month for students attending four days. There’s also a one-time $20 registration fee.
“I touch the future,” once said Christa McAuliffe, the American teacher and Space Shuttle Challenger crew member. “I teach.”
To honor the stellar teachers who encourage students to seek their dreams and reach for the stars, the Canyons Board of Education and Administration encourage members of the community to submit nominations for the 2020 Canyons Teacher of the Year Award.
