Dear Canyon Families,
Welcome Back! Jim Peterson came in today and as part of Eurythmy with K12, he led the whole school in a “Ringing in the New Year” celebration. The older kids were a little stand-offish at first, but by the end they were all fully participating:)
The new year is an exciting time in school. Children return after vacation knowing the routines and eager to get back to work. Randy, from Soul Shoppe, will be back on Friday to work with the kids on the “Stop & Breathe” program. He will also be coming to the February 8th CATSS meeting for a night of adult education about social and emotional learning. This has been triple confirmed. We are looking forward to it.
Peter Eichelberger will be coming in next week to share internet safety tips with students in grades 3-8. Judy will show an internet safety video called Safeside Superchick to students in K12.
There is a staff development day on Monday, January 29th (no school for students). We will be waxing the floors that weekend and would love any help moving furniture out of classrooms after school on Friday. Please email teachers directly if you can help.
Esperanza has retired! It is a big deal for our school but we have worked hard to create a smooth transition for the kids and the community. If you have not already purchased tickets for her retirement party, it is not too late! Contact Ramona for more information. The information is below. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Can you forward the invitation information? Who told you about Canyon School when you first came here? Can you make sure that person and any former families gets the invite? It is hard to keep up with former families and staff and we want to make sure everyone is included! We have a paid list; there are no physical tickets. You can check with Lucia or Ramona if you want to confirm that you are on the paid list.
Also, I sent out an email yesterday with all the details, but we need three more paid participants by Friday to run the after school Spanish program next week. We hope there will be three more kids as many people have been clamoring for an after school Spanish program.
