Nicole's Note: Aug 16th

Let me be the first to welcome our new and returning families to the 2015-2016 school year. As I start my second year at Canyon, I feel so much excitement about the year ahead. The office staff is busy preparing schedules and rosters, ordering supplies, enrolling our new families, etc.

The teachers are using the remainder of their summer to beautify their rooms to welcome a new groups of students next Tuesday. Greg and Mike are making sure our campus is clean and safe for all to enjoy.

There is so much excitement and buzz on campus, and that’s without the kids! We are all looking forward to welcoming their smiling faces back to school on August 18th.

As we start this new year together, please remember that all of us working together with as much harmony as possible is an essential ingredient in the educational success of our children. As our mission statement reads, “We believe that quality education requires collaboration of the entire community of parents, teachers and students.” You are your child’s first teacher and continued parental love and support plays a crucial role in a student’s learning process.

We are so grateful for the support of our parents and community. It’s one of the things that sets us apart from most schools.

I encourage you to commit yourself to our community and to become a voice for a productive and enriching environment for your children.

As part of the welcome back packets that you will obtain online during the first week of school, you will be receiving important information about the school year. Please keep informed about what is going on at Canyon throughout the year by reading all email blasts, flyers, Chronicle’s etc. that come to your inbox or home with your child.

We try to eliminate paper as much as possible, so watch for frequent electronic communication in order to stay up to date with schedules, activities, events and everything Canyon related.

I know that together we are going to have a tremendous year of learning. I look forward to getting to know all Canyon families even better and to working together to provide the best possible environment and education for our children.

I hope you are enjoying the final days of summer. I look forward to welcoming everyone back in person on Tuesday, August 18th.

Nicole Sheard, Principal
