First graders recently had the chance to learn about bees. They learned about working in communities and working together. Their guest Beekeepers, the Wilson’s, did a great job teaching them about being like bees. Students were also taught about the process of making and filtering honey. What a great experience. A big thank you to the Wilson’s!
School lunches. Special education grants. Training for teachers and support for families in need. Census results, and the programs and resources tied to them, affect our students every day. A complete headcount of everyone living in the country, the census only comes around once every 10 years, and the time to be counted — and to make sure your community receives its fair share of federal funding for schools — is coming. This month, every person living in Utah will take part in the 2020 Census. It’s possible to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail starting March 12. It takes only 10 minutes, the information is kept strictly confidential, and if you don’t have access to a computer at home, we can help. Join us for “We Count Week,” March 16-20, and come complete the census at one of four Canyons District-sponsored Open House events. https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12447-the-2020-census-is-coming-make-sure-you-re-counted
Our service project was finished this week. Student Council members put the cleaning kits together. There were also some extra supplies that will be sent that were not part of complete kits. Granite families donated enough supplies for 74 complete cleaning kits for refugee families. We appreciate all of you who supported this great cause. Thank you!
