Teacher of the Year Nominations

Posted in News & Announcements

Show your teachers some love! Nominate your favorite teacher to become East Sandy's 2016 Teacher of the Year. The winning teacher will receive prizes from local businesses, a banner for our school, and special honors at an April Canyons Board of Education Reception and Honors Ceremony.  Our Teacher of the Year also will have a shot to be selected as the District Teacher of the Year, which comes with additional prizes and a nomination for the Utah Teacher of the Year contest.  We will surprise our winning teacher on Friday, April 1.

Here's how you can get involved: 

1. Parents, students and community members alike can submit a nomination form.  We want to hear from all of you.  Download the nomination form pdfTeacher of the Year Nomination Form.pdf (Nominating window opens February 1 and runs until February 26)
2. Complete the form on why you think your nominee should be recognized. Criteria includes how the teacher shows that students are making progress, supports the Canyons District vision and goals, and exhibits leadership skills and efforts to promote collaboration, student engagement, and community and family involvement.
3. Print and submit the form to your school's PTA leaders, or, if you are a school employee, to your principal, by Feb. 26. The School Selection Committee will consider nominees forwarded by the PTA and employees.

Canyons School District honors Teachers of the Year at every school. Winning teachers will be announced at school celebrations on April 1. The District Teacher of the Year will be announced by the Board of Education in April.

Fifth-Graders, Parents Invited to Attend Maturation Programs

Posted in News & Announcements

Yes, It's almost time for "the talk."                                                                                To help start discussions about health and wellness, Canyons District has developed an informational maturation-process program for fifth-grade students and their parents.  

Fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents are invited to attend maturation presentations by professional speakers. We encourage parents and their fifth-grade children to attend these free events together so conversations can continue in the home.  

The aim with this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each school, is to provide consistent, sensitive, and approved maturation instruction districtwide.
