Canyon Crest Elementary School

Canyon Crest Parents/Guardians,

Please note the following announcements.

1. Brief Research Opportunity For Your School

My name is Dakin Stovall, and I am a doctoral student in the psychology department at Brigham Young University (BYU). I am conducting a research study, along with my collaborators, Jenny Rowley (EdS student) and Amy Hawks (EdS student) examining sustainability and inclusion in schools and school districts which offer dual language learning (DLI) programs. This research project has been approved by BYU’s Human Research Protection Program and was developed in consultation with Utah State Board of Education personnel.

It is our hope to include each voice regarding the DLI enrollment decision and experience.

 The survey is anticipated to take 5-15 minutes and can be accessed here. 

Participation in this survey is voluntary and anonymous. You will also have an opportunity to share your contact details for a confidential interview to voice more about your experience.

Thank you for sharing your voice and giving the opportunity for those in your reach to share their voices too.

2. ROAR Pick-Up/Drop-Off Safety Lesson

This morning, our students learned how to show ROAR behaviors at pick-up and drop-off.  We wanted to make sure parents had this information, as well.  If you can please help to keep our students safe by reinforcing these ROAR behaviors, that would be much appreciated.  ROAR Pick-Up/Drop-Off Safety Lesson.
