Breakfast Options!

Canyon Creek School offers a terrific hot breakfast program for our students, as well as a "Grab and Go" option. Our hot breakfast program tends to serve those students who prefer to sit down with friends in the cafeteria prior to class starting, while the "Grab and Go" program provides an option for those that prefer to take their breakfast to class or are running late. Both options are always available to all students every morning. Our goal here at Canyon Creek is to serve the breakfast needs of all our students.

This is a great, stress-free way to start the school year!

Back to School 19-20

Dear Canyon Creek Families,

As the summer comes to a close, I hope this letter finds students and parents refreshed and ready for the exciting school year ahead of us.

Open House is Monday, August 19th from 6:00-7:00 pm for all students. Our goal is to acquaint students with their teachers, help them find their classrooms, and put away their supplies before school actually starts. This evening also gives parents an opportunity to meet the teachers and learn a little more about what is expected of their child throughout the school year. We strongly encourage you to attend and help make the first day of school a little more comfortable for your student.

We also would like to welcome all kindergarten students to a Kindergarten Open House on August 15th at 6:00 pm. This is just for kindergarten parents and students. We will meet you, get acquainted with the classroom and teachers, and answer any of those first time questions parents may have. We are excited to have you at Canyon Creek!

The school is looking for volunteers to help us out with various events and classrooms this year. Parents, grandparents, and community members are welcome to volunteer at Canyon Creek and give us a hand when needed. We are very appreciative of our volunteers and look forward to having them in our building. Last year we had over 46 volunteers helping in various ways. Look for our new volunteer sign-up sheet during the Open House event or contact Ms. Egan at 656-4471.

This year we would like to welcome Mrs. Morales to a new position as a Dean of Students. Mrs. Morales will be collaborating with myself as an additional administrator in the building. She will be working with students on behavior, discipline, and academics. We welcome her in this new position and look forward to having her as our first official Dean of Students.

Have a great school year!

Brent Lipp
