It’s school library month! Check out these late-fee-free facts about Canyons District libraries.

Do you know how many libraries are located within the Canyons School District? Do you know how many items — books, textbooks, resources, equipment and other materials — are in those libraries? And how about this one: Without the help of your favorite search engine, name the author who said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

Would it help if we gave a hint that the author was from Argentina?

If you answered one or more of those questions in the affirmative, congrats! You’re either a certified librarian or a certifiable bookworm. You’re probably even aware that April is School Library Month.

Grizzlies Learn Paint Pouring

Oh what fun!  Grizzlies were able to learn paint pouring the last few weeks.  Parent volunteers and donations of paint, gloves, and canvases allowed each student to complete their own project.  Students chose color combinations and their pouring technique.  We had a huge variety of art produced and students had a lot of fun.  Thank you Mrs. Carr for taking on this big project.  Nice job Grizzlies!

First Graders and Flat Stanley

From California to Ireland, Flat Stanley has been busy traveling the world!  Mrs. Gleave’s 1st graders have enjoyed hearing all about Stanley’s adventures and the places he’s been visiting.  The students mail Flat Stanley to a friend or relative and then wait for his/her return.  They bring their Stanley to class and share about the trip as part of their First Grade Grizzly Award they’ve been working on all year!  Great job first graders!

Plants Plants Plants!

In Miss Laura’s Extended Core Classroom, we have been studying the physical characteristics and basic needs of plants.  Before spring break, we planted nasturtium and tomato seeds.  When we came back from break, we had 3-4”plants…very exciting!  We are also completing an interactive notebook to go along with our plant unit of observing, describing and comparing plant parts.  Nice job students!
