Greetings Wildcat Families,
I want to begin by thanking our families and students who gave to "Warmth for Warriors" project. We are proudly giving back to our veterans by providing 292 pairs of socks, 76 winter hats, 70 pairs of gloves, and 24 scarves/jackets. I want to give special recognition to Mrs. Price and Mrs. Arnold for organizing such a wonderful project for our students and veterans – Thank you!
I loved seeing the smiles and excitement of our students at our inaugural Trunk or Treat. This activity gave us the opportunity to come together as a community. It was so much fun watching the students interact with their friends and family.
We also celebrated “Unite Against Bullying”. Our students have worked with their teachers and Mrs. Hannan, our counselor, on identifying bullying, and how to respond when they see or feel someone is a victim of being bullied. We will continue these conversations with our students and continue to provide our students with strategies on preventing bullying in our school. There is no place for bullying at Canyon Pointe. You send us your children to learn, and we are committed to providing a safe place for them to learn and grow. Please subscribe to Mrs. Hannan's website for more information and updates.
The month of November is going to be just as busy and rewarding as October. I encourage you to check out our campus calendar and monthly newsletter for specific dates. Our kindergarten students will be heading out to the Oil Ranch for their field trip this month, a school wide food drive to help those in need, Thanksgiving holiday, and so many learning opportunities for your students.
Thank you again for all your continued support.
Book Fair is coming and here are some events I want to share with you. The official start of book fair is Monday, November 30. On Friday, November 20, we will have a secret afternoon for parents to enjoy shopping for Christmas without your kiddos. There will,also be online ordering available from November 15 - December 4 at:
If you want to order online and pick it up without the kiddos knowing, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will call you when your order arrives so you can pick it up instead of me sending it home with your student.
