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!
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.

Today our fifth grade got to go to Eastmont to get ready to choose our classes for middle school next year. We got to learn which teacher teaches what class, where each classroom is located and how to sign up for classes. The tour around the building was a blast! I feel ready to go to middle school. There are so many elective classes that it is hard to choose which ones I want to take. If I could, I would take all the elective classes Eastmont offers. I want to take the art class for my elective class. My favorite part of the tour was when they showed us where each classroom is located.
