Message from Jocelyn

Hey Canyon families- I wanted to let you know about a  couple of free webinars hosted by AHS, which may interest you. Please find links below. I'm not sure if you've checked out what's happening at the library lately, on Friday afternoons Lego League is back running for school age children between from1:30- 3. It's entirely free and a great way for siblings and friends to work together outside of school. Call the Pincher Creek Municipal Library for more information 403-627-3813. While we're on the subject of the library I wanted to send out a big thank you to Kayla at the municipal library for helping us with our Dungeons and Dragons group on Thursday this week, and Johnny Cache Hobbies here in town who donated us a set of dice for the game.
