Mrs. Williams’ Monday Minute February 17, 2020

We are having a lot of fun with our PTA month of celebrating reading. Encourage your children to read during the week and turn in the hours spent reading on Mondays. We will also be having the book fair. There will be an email coming with a link to sign up to help with the book fair. We would appreciate any time you can give.

I just wanted to mention Apple Watches because a few questions have come up. These can function like a phone. We ask students to keep phones in their back pack. A watch may not fare well in a back pack because of the size and concerns about breaking. Keeping them at home would be the best option. If students wear these to school, please help us with encouraging your child not to be on the internet doing any searches or using them to text during the school day.

Spring Break

Congratulations Wildcats

Willow Canyon is the #2 public elementary school in the state of Utah! The PTA wanted to celebrate all the hard work that our principal, faculty, staff, and students put in to teaching and learning. They provided Cafe Rio lunch for the faculty and staff and had an assembly to celebrate with the students. All students received Otter Pops at lunch. Thanks PTA for recognizing and celebrating the hard work that went in to this great achievement! 

Make Up Day for Snow Day

To make up for the instructional time lost due to the weather-related cancellation of school on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, a make-up day will be held on Presidents Day. All Canyons District schools will now hold school on Feb. 17 on their usual Monday schedules. Buses also will be operating that day. The Presidents Day holiday was previously set aside by the District’s Calendar Committee as the designated make-up day for emergency school closures for the 2019-2020 school year. Under Utah law, public schools must conduct school for at least 990 instructional hours over a minimum of 180 days each academic year, and recover any days lost due to inclement weather. Districts are expected to build a recovery day into their calendars so as to provide families and employees advance notice of the possible need and timing for a make-up day. Please find answers to frequently-asked questions on CSD’s homepage.
