Thank you for helping us celebrate and appreciate each of them! Thank you for supporting PTA, who created a week of wonderful experiences for teachers too! 

State Speech & Debate Champions! – We are so proud of our Granite 5th graders who represented Canyons District, with their 5th grade teacher & Coach, Heather Witkamp, at the UDCA State Tournament last weekend.
