Principal's Message 11/3/17

Dear Canyon View Families,

October was a very exciting month for us at Canyon View and now it’s on to the second trimester!  We want to thank everyone for attending our annual Canyon Boo celebration and making this special event such an enjoyable experience for our children.  The costume parade on the 31st was another fun event for our students, and it was rewarding to see all of the teachers and parents having just as much fun as our children!  We also want to thank all of our students and parents for supporting this week’s Book Fair.  Students’ excitement for reading was contagious around campus, and we want to thank all of our committed volunteers who helped out!

On Friday, November 10th we will be holding our annual Community Veteran’s Walk at Sabino Canyon. We will first meet in front of the Canyon View security office at 8:00AM and then we’ll walk over to the canyon together after our school choir sings the National Anthem.  This is a special community event for our school as we want to continue to celebrate and appreciate our Veterans for the sacrifices they make for our country and their fellow Americans.  We hope to see you there!

On Monday, November 27 and Monday, January 22 at 2:00PM Canyon View will be hosting our two Kindergarten Show & Tells.  Parents who have incoming kindergarten students are invited to attend one of our Show & Tells to learn more about the kindergarten programs offered at Canyon View.  Please call 209-7702 to make your reservation.

Additionally, Canyon View will be hosting our first two open houses for prospective open enrollment families on Wednesday, November 15 and Wednesday, December 20 at 1:00PM.  Our third and final open enrollment open house will be on January 24 at 8:30AM.  If you know of any families who are interested in learning more about what Canyon View has to offer their children, please pass this important information along to them.  To RSVP for the open houses, or to schedule a small group/individual tour, please call 209-7702. 

As communicated to our families a few weeks ago, the open enrollment window opened on November 1st and closes on January 31st, 2018.  The online open enrollment application is accessible on the district website,, or by clicking here.  As a reminder, current open enrollment families must reapply each year between November 1st and January 31st.
On Friday, November 17th parents will be able to view their child’s report card by logging into their ParentVUE account and clicking the Report Card section along the left side of their child’s homepage.  There are video tutorials on Canyon View's Youtube Channel for your convenience to help you better understand your ParentVUE account.  You can access these video tutorials by visiting the Canyon View homepage:  Parents must have an active ParentVUE account in order to view/print their child’s report card.  If you have any questions regarding your child’s report card or need assistance with ParentVUE, please do not hesitate to contact the front office.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that under the leadership of our Student Advisory Board (SAB), Canyon View will once again participate in the Adopt-A-Family Project.  Last year, our school community positively influenced the lives of over 200 people during the holiday season.  We are deeply committed to this project, and we are looking forward to helping those in need.  Additional information will be sent out to our families in two weeks.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Rob Henikman
