Canyons District's COVID-19 Action Plan, Updates | Read More >

Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program

UPDATE • THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to control the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

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.

EME 2020 Spelling Bee winners!

Congratulations!  After 16 rounds of spelling, Liliana, a 5th grader at East Midvale, won 1st place in our Spelling Bee!  Champ, a 3rd grader came in 2nd place and Seth, a 4th grader placed 3rd!  This is a repeat for Seth who was in the top 3 spellers in 2019.

The On-Time Alliance launches …

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.
