Nicole's Note:  Feb 28th

It's hard to believe that we are already 2/3 of the way through the school year! We are already starting to plan for events like Open House, Olympics Day, Testing, Fiesta, etc. It all seems so far away, but we know it will be here in the blink of an eye!
 
Friday marked the final day of our 2nd reporting period. Students will be receiving report cards either Friday of this week or during conferences next week. If you haven't had a chance to sign up for a conference, please consider doing so. This is a great opportunity to stay informed of your child's progress and to learn ways in which you can best support him/her at home. We don't only discuss academics, but social emotional well being as well.
 
Please remember that this is not a time to talk about your child's placement for next year. The teachers will focus the conferences on your child's current level of performance. Please refrain from bringing up next year, future teachers, etc. We ask that you trust in the process and know that your child's teacher knows him or her very well and will make the best possible educational placement to meet his/her needs. We want to take the conference time to focus on the here and now, and what we can do collaboratively to ensure that your child has a positive and successful last third of the school year.
 
Conferences will be held the week of March 7-11. During this week, kindergarten will be dismissed at 1:00pm and grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 1:45pm. Please make sure to make after school arrangements for child care prior to your child(ren) coming to school. We look forward to meeting with you and sharing the exceptional work that our Canyon kids are producing day in and day out. We have a lot to be proud of, and know that you will be proud of their accomplishments as well.
 
Thank you for your continued support of our mission to educate the "whole" child!
 
Warmly,
Nicole
