Parent Memo - May 10th

Canyon School Weekly Memo

May 10, 2024

"The Canyon School Community will nurture caring, respectful citizens who embrace lifelong learning."

We had another great week of learning here at Canyon. Many students in our Grades 1-3 classes had the opportunity to plant sunflowers on Monday. We thank Blue Mouse Greenhouse for supporting and sponsoring this project with students. They have been enjoying watching their marigolds and sunflowers grow! Students also had the opportunity to participate in learning around positive mental health awareness. We thank Jocelyn for organizing bunnies to come to the school for students to learn about and spend time with them.

Students have been enjoying new wiffle ball equipment. We are grateful to our local Rona for donating these wiffle ball targets for recess play! We thank Mr. Martens for taking the initiative to make this possible for our students.

Our school wide short story writing project will happen on Wednesday. After students work hard to write an excellent story, we plan to have an extra extended recess as we met our fundraising goal of $3,000 for Jump Rope for Heart. Students will also enjoy a popsicle treat during this extra time outside.

Day on the Creek is coming next week already on Thursday, May 16th. If you would like to volunteer to attend with your child's class, please contact their teacher directly. We are hoping to have parents out to support this outdoor experiential day of learning. Thank you.

This month the LRSD Board of Trustees begin the engagement process regarding the 4 Day School week. Please review the information posted so far here. If you have questions or would like to learn more, please join the Regional School Council Meeting on May 29th at 6pm. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Mother's Day :)
