Congratulations to Mrs. Tammy Goodwater on your 2014 Innovation Grant! We are proud to have you on our team.
CSD Foundation Gives $90,000 to Teachers for Innovative Projects - The Canyons Education Foundation spent two days last week criss-crossing the District to surprise teachers in their classrooms with the news that they had been chosen to receive a 2014 Foundation Innovation Grant.
The Foundation distributed 17 grants — made possible by generous community donations — to teachers who submitted creative and exciting ideas for ways to use technology in the classroom.
In all, the Foundation gave away $90,000. The grant winners were picked by a selection committee, which was made up of Foundation board members, administrators and educators in Canyons’ Education Technology, Evidence-Based Learning and Special Education departments.
Fun things are happening at East Sandy this week. Most of our students will be participating in an 'Hour of Code" at some point during the week. We will be joining a world-wide movement as we introduce students to computer coding and help them see what they can create right before their eyes. We not only want them using technology but having an experience of learning to build technology.
Visit http://hourofcode.com to see the information and tutorials our students are working with.
Report Cards will be coming home on November 19 for our Mustangs. Please take a few minutes to watch the district report card video and review the new information on the district website to help you understand the changes on our report card.
November 14 is a working report card day for our teachers. There will be no school for students on that day as they prepare report cards.
During November our East Sandy Mustangs will be collecting and participating in various community service projects. We have many to choose from and do not expect you to support all of them. Just look over the options and support where you can.
