Dear Canyon Community,
First of all a huge thank you to Cassie and Kelley and all the parents who helped make the walkathon such a wonderful success. It is always such a wonderful fun day. It is such a treat to get to walk around the beautiful campus and chat with children and parents in a relaxed atmosphere. I am already excited for next year’s walkathon!
Reminder: it can be much colder, darker and damper in Canyon than it is elsewhere. Remember to dress your kids in layers. Unless it is pouring rain kids will be outside for parts of the day (recess, PE, etc). It is helpful to always have a cozy fleece or sweatshirt in the backpack.
We are piloting a mindfulness curriculum called Inner Explorer. Judy has already started with great impact and the other classes will start soon.
Important- Please read: The schedule on 10/31 has been confusing and reported in different ways. HERE IS THE ACTUAL AND FINAL SCHEDULE FOR HALLOWEEN-
8:45-9:15 HALLOWEEN PARADE
9:15-10:15 ROTATION 1
10:30-11:30 ROTATION 2
11:30-12:30 ROTATION 3
November 1st is a reverse minimum day! School will begin at 11:00 am. Camille has offered (FOR THIS ONE TIME), to make beforecare free to anyone who participates. So you are welcome to drop your kids off at 8:35. Please drop them at the red field and sign them in to beforecare any time between 8:35-11. Do not go to classrooms as teachers will be holding conferences. Regular aftercare will also be available on this day.
Revi wanted to let you all know:
I have space for one more kid for violin lessons this fall at my home in Oakland. I am about 20 minutes from Canyon. I have room for one more weekly half hour lesson on Wednesday evening either at 7 or 7:30.
The cost is $35 per half hour.
I have been teaching for 25 years, mostly beginners but also those more advanced. I teach by ear and reading music, all styles. I myself have played since I was 4, and was trained classically, but since have played styles from English/Irish dance music through Eastern European and klesmer into Americana (my current band!) and jazz. I love improvising and teaching how to improvise!
As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, please let me know!
