There was a staggered start beginning with 5 & 6 graders, then 3 & 4 graders, and finally K-2 graders. All students enjoyed a popsicle at the end of the race!

“Mrs. Money embodies the qualities of dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment to her students. She is the first to arrive early, stay late and take on added responsibilities if it means helping students learn. She provides selfless service to her students. As a special education teacher, she tailors her students learning to their learning level and strengths. Mrs. Money has piloted programs for the district on several occasions. She creates a positive learning culture and runs an exemplary program.”

We love having Kristin Money at Canyon Elementary. She is amazing!

Third Graders at Canyon just completed RadKids. In this class children gain valuable lifesaving skills as they learn to recognize, avoid, resist and escape from danger.  In radKIDS, children learn from a comprehensive curriculum that addresses school safety, bullying, home safety, fire safety, bike safety, dog safety, out and about safety, strangers, how and when to call 911, good/bad/uncomfortable touch to name a few. After each subject is taught we practice safety drills so they get a chance to practice what they are learning. Additionally children learn physical resistance skills to help them stop violence and escape to safety should they encounter physical harm or danger.  Essentially, children in this program are physically trained how to be safe, not just told how.

K-9 Visit

As part of the DARE program, K9 officers visited with fifth grade students. Below is a list of what students said they learned.

The dogs bite really hard.

I learned that you should never do anything that's wrong. You will never now the price that you will have to pay.

I learned that K-9 dogs are very strong, fierce, and have very sharp teeth. They're also really obedient to commands that the officers gave them. They have an amazing sense of smell.

Don't do drugs; no matter what. You want to get into a mess with those kinds of dogs?

It was interesting that when the dogs would bite, they would stay in one place.

You should never run or hide from a police dog. Ouch!!

The dogs are very smart and strong!

A dog's bite can hurt really bad. Even though he had a suit on, he got puncture marks on his arms.
