Three Peaks Elementary
Third grade classes at Three Peaks Elementary were excited to have the Thanksgiving Point education department visit last week to present the citizen-scientist program, Tulips Journey North. Students planted and will observe tulip gardens to track the arrival of spring at our school. They will take part in a global science experiment by observing growth in their own garden and comparing their results with students across North America and Europe. They will put the scientific method into practice - observing, inquiring, recording, and sharing their results. A giant thank you to Thanksgiving Point for providing the tulip bulbs and Home Depot for helping with the potting soil and planters. The tulips will be a beautiful addition to our school in the spring.
Canyon View Middle
7th graders visited Fremont Indian State Park and Cove Fort Friday, October 14. The kids were excited to have a day to learn more about Utah History outside the classroom for a day. The students have been learning about Utah Native Americans in their Utah History classes, and the core teachers felt that this was the perfect time to take them to the museum to see artifacts from these Native Americans. At the Fremont Indian State Park, students explored the museum, watched a quick documentary on the history of the Fremont Indians, took a small hike to see pictographs, explored a pit house and granary, and practiced using an atlatl to throw spears. At Cove Fort, the students watched a short documentary about the history of Cove Fort. They explored the fort and surrounding buildings. The field trip was a success, and the kids both learned and enjoyed the experience.

Canyon View High School
On Tuesday, October 18, Canyon View High School was pleased to welcome a guest speaker, Larry Scott, to our school. Three assemblies and trainings were held in conjunction with Rachel's Challenge. Mr. Scott is the uncle of Rachel Joy Scott, a 17 year-old girl that was tragically killed in the Columbine shooting. However, Rachel had a theory that we'd like to implement in our school: one act of kindness can start a chain reaction, and you never know how far a little kindness can go. We're implementing this theory by starting a Friends of Rachel (FOR) Club. The FOR club will focus on creating a more positive atmosphere at our school through a number of projects. These include making paper chains based on acts of kindness, writing thank-you notes to staff, and taking the initiative to be kind. We hope that the FOR club will help to unify our student body and make CVHS an even better place to be.
