PTA READING OLYMPICS

The PTA fundraiser this year is a READING OLYMPICS in conjunction with the Utah Jazz reading program! Our school can win a visit from a Jazz player, as all as many other prizes, based on how many minutes we read! The fundraiser is separate from this contest, but is also based on reading minutes.

Teacher of the Year Nominations (Feb. 1-28)

Show your teachers some love!  Nominate your favorite for our school’s Teacher of the Year award.  The winner will receive prizes from local businesses, a banner for our school, and special honors at an April 28 Canyons Board of Education Reception and Honors Ceremony.  Our Teacher of the Year also will have a shot at Canyons School Teacher of the Year, which comes with additional prizes and a nomination for the Utah Teacher of the Year contest.

We’ll surprise the winning teacher on Friday, April 3.  Mark your calendars, and join us if you can!

Here’s how to nominate:

1.  Download Nomination Form

2.  Tell why your teacher should be the Teacher of the Year.  Be sure to include your experiences and observations about how the teacher helps students improve and prepare for the future, and encourages families to get involved in classroom or school activities.

3.  Print and submit the form to the PTA by March 2 (if you’re a school employee, submit the form to the principal).  The School Selection committee will consider nominees forwarded by the PTA (up to two) and employees.

4.  Watch for information about the April 3 Teacher of the Year surprise announcement.

Thanks for helping us recognize our outstanding teachers!

Kindergarten Registration 2015-2016

It is important that we obtain an accurate list of all children qualifying for kindergarten in the Canyons School District for the 2015-2016 school year. If you have a child that will be five years of age on or before September 1, 2015, the child qualifies for next year’s kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date. You will be required, before enrollment, to bring the child’s immunization record, and a certified birth certificate (not a photocopy). 

If you know of a neighbor that has a qualifying kindergarten child, please share this information with them and tell them to call the school and register their kindergarten child.

Student Reports

Mark your calendars: The first I-CANyons student progress report of the school year will be issued the week of Nov. 17-21, 2014. This is a new student report, updated from last school year’s document to be more user-friendly based on feedback received from parents and teachers.  Parents can expect an I-CANyons progress report for Term 1 and Term 2, and an End-of-Year Summary issued after Term 3 to reflect your students' mastery of standards.

This upcoming I-CANyons Student Reports will communicate your student’s progress toward content mastery with a 3, 2 or 1:

  • 3: On Track at this Time - Student is on track to master this standard by the end of the school year.
  • 2: Progressing - Student is making progress toward meeting the standard at this time; sometimes demonstrating skills needed to meet standards, at other times showing a lack of understanding or ability to apply the concept or skills.
  • 1: Insufficient Progress - Student is showing risk of not mastering the standard by the end of the year and is receiving intervention support.

At the end of Term 3, the I-CANyons student reports will communicate your student’s mastery of content in the following ways:

  • 3M: Mastered – Student has mastered this standard.
  • 2NYM: Not Yet Mastered – Student has mastered some but not all of the skills necessary to consistently apply this standard to future learning.
  • 1NYM: Not Yet Mastered – Student will require on-going intervention to master this standard.

Details about the I-CANyons Student Report can be found on the Canyons District website, http://www.canyonsdistrict.org/student-reports.  Should you have additional questions, please contact your child's teacher or the school's office, or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
