Celebrations
 
GAGA BALL PIT
Did you know that Canyon Creek now has a GaGa Pit?   Thanks to Girl Scout Troop 2185 , we have a GaGa Ball Pit for our campus next to the portable buildings.  Gaga is a fast paced game played in an octagonal pit. The more players the better! It is a kinder gentler version of dodge ball. The game is played with a soft foam ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knee.  Lots of fun and a great workout! Coach Tighe is working with our students to learn the ins and outs of the game.  



FIELD DAY
Students had a great time at Field Day on Friday!  Thank you to Coach Tighe and all our parents that helped make the day a success!



TEXAS DAY
This week, Fourth Grade celebrated Texas Day.  Their morning was full of Texas related activities.  Students had a chili cookout, watermelon tasting, Texas mapping activities, a western photo booth and more!


VOLUNTEER LUNCHEON
Thank you again to all our Parent Volunteers Your support and dedication is greatly appreciated and is fundamental for the success of our school.
