Calling all Kindergarten through 2nd graders and their stuffed friends!

Canyon Pointe Academy will be having their annual Teddy Bear Picnic tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26th. Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade are welcome to bring in their favorite stuffed friend, and a blanket or towel. During lunch, students will be able to eat outside with their friends – both stuffed and real! Mrs. Pence’s best “friend”, Billy, will be joining the festivities!


Day 2 of Science Week was out of this world!

Tuesday, April 25th of Science Week focused on Earth and Space. Some classes learned about the effects of erosion and different planets. Kindergarten and first grade studied the phases of the moon using Oreos! One second grade class created layers of soil using pudding, cake, whip cream, and gummy worms! According to one source, who wishes to remain anonymous, “dirt tastes good.” Finally, our sixth graders who are preparing to leave our campus in a month, created their own planets that could sustain life. We’re hoping our sixth graders are merely graduating from our campus, not the galaxy.

Science Week Kick-Off!

Canyon kicked off Science week on Monday. Students in grades Kindergarten through Sixth grade explored famous scientists and inventors. Kindergarteners communicated long distance, across the room, with with homemade phones. First grade students “invented” items with clay, pipe cleaners, spoons and plates. Second grade experimented with circuit kits while fifth grade redesigned the playground for optimal use. Great job, Lions!

Kindergarten Field Trip Fun!

Kindergarten went on an adventure to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. There were many hands on exhibits to explore. Some of our favorites were;

The Scaff-Perini Climber
A three story climbing structure that allows children to experience their world from different heights.

The Art Studio
A place for artistic expression and a chance to help add paint to their giant robot.

Where we got to experience the power of air.

Pedal Power
Where we got to ride tricycles through the “trike wash.”

And The Market
Where we got to experience dramatic play by taking turns shopping and checking costumers out.

Lights, camera, Moana!

Please join us for a special outdoor screening of Disney’s Moana on Thursday, April 13th. The gates will open at 6:30pm and the movie starts at 7:00pm. Be sure to bring blankets and/or lawn chairs to sit on. Movie-style snacks such as popcorn and candy will be available to purchase along with hot dogs, pretzels, and nachos! Can’t wait to see you there!
