Our lions were busy this week learning about and “visiting” the continent of Asia. This week we practiced different languages, ate different foods,”toured” around the entire continent of Asia and paraded around campus in traditional Asian clothing. Everyday students were able to select, enjoy, and inspire each other with their new found knowledge – knowledge that resulted in MEGA TRIVIA at a special station on Friday. Special thanks to all of our students, teachers,friends and families for their continued support. This support reaffirms the importance of our sense of community!
Canyon Pointe Academy raised enough money during International Week to buy a cow. Are they starting a farm to complement their Garden Club? Since cows and lions don’t get along very well, the amazing students at Canyon Pointe decided to donate their money to Heifer International, is a charity organization working to end hunger and poverty around the world by providing livestock and training to struggling communities. Each day, Canyon student emptied their piggy banks into donation buckets and progress was tracked by a gigantic thermometer! As of Friday, Canyon raised hundreds of dollars to help an international community with more money waiting to be counted. We are so proud! Stay tuned for final totals and what students elected to buy!
