WATER TO THRIVE
This week students presented a check for  $2588.28 to Water to Thrive.  The cost to build a well is $5000.  Amplify Austin 2016, set a goal of funding specific Amplify Austin water projects. Their first $2,500  matched the  funds raised by third graders at their Economic Expo. This  means that Water to Thrive will be able build a well on behalf of the Canyon Creek Elementary Third Grade, enabling a rural Ethiopian village to have clean, safe water!

CAMPUS NEWS

LUNCH RECESS
We are in need of volunteers for Lunch Recess.  Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students love having some extra outside play time during their lunch block each day.  Lunch Recess is only possible with the help of our parent volunteers.  This year we have added another staff member outside in order to increase supervision so our students can continue to have this extra recess.  If we do not have parent volunteers, we do not have enough adults to help watch and students are not able to go outside.  Please consider volunteering.  Our students thank you and so do we!  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0945afaf2ca0fa7-lunch

Take advantage of Sharks 'n Minnows weeks at Kinder and Theme Camp and your camper will enjoy daily swim lessons courtesy of trained YMCA swim instructors at no extra cost.  Join us for Sports Camp and sharpen your skills in a supportive environment where improving is the name of the game, not winning. Expand your horizons this summer at Trailblazer Camp and stay busy with three field trips and two dips in the pool every week!

At the Y, campers improve their self-esteem, learn to respect individual differences, enhance teamwork skills, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
