Principal Update

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.  

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!

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!

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

Kindergartners had busy morning with their CCE’s  Annual Mother’s Day program and Open House.  We had a great turnout of parents for the event.  We are so proud of our kindergarten students. Our youngest Comets have grown so much this year!
