Updated information now available on the computer programs your child uses at school and how you can access from home:
Each teacher uses these resources differently, some assign for homework, others make it optional. Parents can speak to their child's teacher to find out more information about their child's class. A bonus this year is the ability to use ST Math on a mobile tablet (IPad 2 or 3, Android Tablet, or Kindle Fire).

GREEN TENNIS SHOE AWARD” is back!
In an effort to reduce Canyon’s carbon footprint, as well as traffic congestion, the “GREEN TENNIS SHOE AWARD” is back! Every Friday, the classroom with the highest percentage of kids who walked, biked, rode the bus, carpooled, or used some other form of “GREEN” transportation to get to school that day will receive the “GREEN TENNIS SHOE AWARD” for the week!!!
PLAY GROUND RULES: Please be reminded that after school use of the apparatus is only allowable if children are directly supervised by a student’s parent/guardian. The playground apparatus will now be available immediately after school. Please remember that in LAUSD the playground apparatus may only be used after school with direct parent/guardian supervision. I appreciate your supporting and following school policy. These policies are in place to keep students safe and prevent unnecessary injuries. Joyce Dara

As Canyon teachers embrace the Common Core State Standards your child’s attendance is more critical than ever.
In LAUSD the Common Core Standards have been adopted in collaboration with a new Teaching and Learning Framework. The way teachers teach and how students learn has changed. In concert with clear expectations for reading, writing, speaking, listening, language and mathematics, the expectations outlined in the CCSS include the development of students’ abilities to think critically, reason, communicate effectively, and solve problems that arise in everyday life, society, and the workplace. Student to student interactions and group collaboration will dominate a good part of daily instruction. Strong attendance rates will be critical for student success.
Fall is here and with the change of weather our yard fills up with clothing!
The mornings are frequently cool but the afternoons often warm up substantially and with this change of weather, comes the shedding of clothing! Unfortunately, children often forget their jackets and sweaters on the yard and our Lost and Found begins to overflow.
Please take a moment to remind your child to try to remember to come home with what they came to school wearing.
And, please remember to check the Lost and Found frequently. Any clothes and/or items left for a few weeks will be donated to Charity.

Annual Giving is a term you will hear throughout your time at Canyon Charter School. It’s our year-long campaign to build our fund that supports all the enrichment programs that make this school such an esteemed, highly ranked local southern California public school, truly a gem in the LAUSD system.
Throughout the year, you will see our requests to support this campaign, as we intend to recruit each and every family to do their part in securing the incredible reputation this school has earned. It’s an invaluable circular relationship, as the involvement and fundraising efforts of all the committees at Canyon Charter School lead to an enviable endowment every year providing the most excellent public education environment to our children – which in turn attracts more and more involved and caring families to join our school roster, and even local businesses to support and uphold our promise to the neighborhood. It’s a relationship that needs constant feeding, but reaps our children and our community immense rewards.
