Canyon Crest Elementary School

Welcome to December!  As we enter into the most wonderful time of the year, I want to express appreciation to our students, faculty/staff, and parents for making Canyon Crest such a wonderful school.  We recently received a distinguished award from US News as one of the Best Elementary Schools for 2024!  This accomplishment represents our community’s dedication to student learning and growth!  Thank you, thank you!

Because we care deeply about what happens every day at Canyon Crest, we are currently in the process of re-evaluating our school’s mission and vision.  We have conducted a core values and brainstorming workshop with our School Leadership Team (grade level leaders) and received feedback from a parent focus group.  Next, we will be working with a student focus group to get their input and ideas.  If you are interested in discussing this process further or have insights to contribute, please reach out me.

Although it is a short month of school, we still have a lot to look forward to and celebrate, including:

  • Book Fair (Dec. 4-7)
  • School Production (Dec. 8)
  • Spirit Week (Dec. 11-15)
  • Choir Concert (Dec. 14)
  • Holiday Performances for Parents (Dec. 19)
  • Holiday Class Celebrations (Dec. 20)
  • Early Release (Dec. 20)
  • Winter Break (Dec. 21-Jan. 2)

We hope you and your family will have an enjoyable month.  So much to do and so much to be grateful for.

All the best

Dr. Sean Edwards
