Please Come to the Benefit Concert February 20th!

by Lucia Sullivan on 02/04/2016

Canyon School is hosting a benefit concert Saturday, February 20th from 6:30-10 pm at The Rose Labyrinth in Berkeley (2138 Cedar Street). Tickets are $25 per person. Children are welcome but must have tickets. Please attend!

We are not having another big evening social event this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with the Canyon community in a relaxed way. Rusty Springfield will be performing for your listening pleasure, along with a trio of Esperanza, Greg and Leslie and the debut of the Canyon Choir.

The hope is that fundraising for this year’s Costa Rica trip will be so robust, we will be able to support future years. So please do get tickets now to support the effort AND have a fun night out!

A Message from the Principal

Thank you to all who were involved in the Art Fair. It was a tremendous success! We raised $358 for the lunch program and $1510 for the Costa Rica trip. Additionally, students had the opportunity to both create and sell their own wares. Many students and parents reported that students developed greater economic understand of net and gross profits. Additionally, students were able to develop a greater sense of “supply and demand” by pricing items to sell. It was a wonderfully energetic and cheery community event.

If you are still shopping for gifts, I would encourage you to read this article from last Sunday’s New York Times. There is good evidence to suggest that a book could be just the right thing!

A Message from the Principal

Dear Canyon Families,

When I was hired, it was made clear there was a strong desire for a more robust science program at Canyon School. We have a vibrant, highly educated community with many parents working in STEM fields. In an attempt to harness that energy and all available resources, I would like to convene a STEM task force. The initial goals of this task force would be the following:

  1. Develop clear, measurable goals for bringing more STEM resources to Canyon
  2. Identify resources, grants, enrichment programs and other opportunities available to us
  3. Align our STEM goals with our Technology plan
  4. Develop an implementation plan

If you would be interested in participating in this task force, please complete the following survey.

Thank you,
