Thank you to everyone who attended parent teacher conferences last week. It was good to see all the parents in the building. And a huge thank you to the PTA who helped provide dinners for our teachers those two evenings. It was very much appreciated.
Teacher of the Year Nominations
Let’s give our teachers some love! During this month of paper hearts, candies and chocolates, Canyons is inviting the community to give teachers the ultimate valentine: a Teacher of the Year nomination. Starting Feb. 1, Canyons schools will take nominations for Teacher of the Year. The nomination window will close Feb. 26. Each year, every Canyons District school recognizes a Teacher of the Year for outstanding teaching practices, professionalism, and community involvement. Each Teacher of the Year receives gifts and prizes donated by CSD’s generous business partners and special honors from the Board of Education. Each also is nominated for Canyons District Teacher of the Year, an honor that includes cash, prizes, and a nomination for the Utah Teacher of the Year award. If you’d like to nominate a teacher in our school, please submit your nomination to our PTA Board. A copy of the nomination form can be found here: http://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/3217-give-teachers-some-love-nominate-for-teacher-of-the-year

Fifth-Grade Maturation Programs
We encourage all parents and their children to attend these free events together so conversations can continue in the home. The aim of this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved maturation instruction district-wide. The District will send notices via U.S. Postal Service, Peachjar, and Skylert. We also will have handouts for February Parent-Teacher Conferences.
