Provo City School District

Canyon Crest Elementary School

Canyon Crest Parents/Guardians,

Please note the following announcements.

1. Chromebooks Being Sent Home Today

We are sending Chromebooks home today, Tuesday, February 21 in case an at-home learning day is called for tomorrow. Wednesday 2/22/23 will begin two hours late. Canyon Crest will start at 10:50am.  Our district office will continue to monitor the weather and may call an at-home learning day.  Please check back at the district website to stay updated.

2. Parent Volunteers Needed – STEM Night

We are excited to announce that our STEM Night Event will be on Tuesday, March 21 from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.  We are looking for some parent volunteers to present a short STEM presentation, activity, or workshop.  The presentation does not need to be anything extravagant or fancy.  In the past, presenters have taught students how to make paper rockets and showed students how to make static electricity.  The presentation could be 5-10 minutes – you could do the presentation in a loop during the event because students will freely rotate in and out of presentations throughout the event.  We are happy to provide you an Amazon gift card for your participation and time.  We will also provide dinner.  We also have a small budget that can help with purchasing supplies.  If someone you know may be interested, please send this information to them.

If you are interested, please complete the Google Form at the link below by this Friday, February 24.  Let our STEM Night Coordinator, Deanna Lee, know if you have any questions (
