Principal Update

Dear Families,
 
I hope you have a great Thanksgiving break and enjoy spending time with family and friends.  It is during this time of year we reflect on things for which we are thankful for.  I am so thankful to serve and work with the students, families and staff at Canyon Creek Elementary.  Happy Thanksgiving!  See you back at school on Monday, November 30th.
 
CAMPUS HAPPENINGS

Kindergarten searched for the missing Gingerbread Man as part of their Project Based Learning (PBL) project. Where is the Gingerbread Man?  We can’t wait to find out!

Second grade shared their pilgrim dolls.  It was great hearing about the students’ ancestors.  Our students’ public speaking skills were so impressive!
