Principal's Message 9/1/17

Dear Canyon View Families,

The first three full weeks of school are in the books and the students and staff at Canyon View Elementary are starting to settle into our routines.  I want to thank all of our families who attended our Curriculum Night on Tuesday.  We hope the evening was informative and you were able to learn about your child’s day here at school.  As mentioned during our Curriculum Night, we will continue to work hard to keep the lines of communication open with our families.  We fully understand how important it is to build and maintain a strong school-home partnership and we appreciate your support!

Next, we want to thank each and every one of our awesome volunteers who supported our efforts last week in bringing the solar eclipse directly to our students.  Whether on the field or in the library, our students were given a unique opportunity to engage in a relevant and meaningful learning experience to deepen their understanding of how our world works.  We also want to give a special thank you to James and Rachel Cramton for all of their efforts in making the event a huge success! 

Below are just a few images that capture the variety of learning experiences our students were engaged in last Monday.  The entire staff at Canyon View Elementary is deeply committed to the whole-child approach to educating our students, and we are routinely researching and exploring new ways to refine and improve our practice.



Have a fantastic Labor Day weekend!


Rob Henikman
