2nd Step – Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Week 

Kinder to 2nd grades – Being Assertive is a great way for students to show ownership in their learning.   Being Assertive means to:
1. Face the person you’re talking to
2.  Keep your head up and shoulders back.
3. Use a calm, firm voice.
4. Use respectful words.

3rd – 5th grades – Making a plan to complete work or meet a goal can help students to better learners and to earn more Dojo points for showing ownership in the classroom. A plan is good if …
1.  The order makes sense
2.  it’s simple,
3.  And you can do it.

#TrotForTech Virtual 5K: A Fun, Healthy Fundraiser to Provide WiFi and Computing Devices to Students in Need

While many traditional celebrations that take place this time of year might look drastically different this season, the Canyons Education Foundation is planning an event that ticks all of the boxes: It’s fun, it’s for a good cause, and the entire community can participate.

The Canyons Education Foundation’s inaugural Virtual Fun Run kicks off Nov. 22-28, and provides an opportunity for participants to complete a 5K that is safe and will benefit members of the community through a fundraiser for Internet connectivity and computing devices for students in need. 

“We know there are individuals who would love to help out within the District, so this is a way for employees and our own student families to be able to help other student families,” said Denise Haycock, Development Officer for the Canyons Education Foundation. 

Those who wish to participate in the fun run can visit this link to sign up.
