NICOLE'S NOTE: APR 19 
Are you Ready?
 
The California Incline closes this Thursday.  Over 15,000 cars a day use the incline and will be redirected to other routes. It is anticipated that the Incline will be closed for 12-14 months. Along with the continuance of the sewer project on PCH, it’s safe to assume that this will exacerbate traffic congestion in the Canyon. 
 
NEW CHARTER IN DRAFT 

New 2015 Canyon Charter

A new charter is in the works for 2015. Take a look at the draft here.

As directed by the Charter, the Canyon School Governing Board – a representative body of staff, teachers, administration and parents – reviews school procedures and sets standards and policies for the school. This allows the local school community to pursue an educational direction that responds to the specific needs of our students. In carrying out the academic mission of the Charter, Canyon has developed a unique instructional focus that highlights living in an ecologically sensitive coastline community within the context of a global village.

OLYMPICS DAY 

GET READY, GET SET, LET'S GO!
OLYMPICS DAY IS MAY 1ST

Olympics Day is one of the most memorable events for the children of Canyon. It's the only event that the children run. Literally. Olympics Day is a chance for everyone from the most athletic, to the most cerebral, from the very social to the very timid to achieve great things together.
