Bell View, Edgemont Families Surveyed on New School Branding Ideas

Will it be the Bear Park Bears or Bees? How about the Glacier Hills Dinosaurs or Yetis? Bell View and Edgemont elementary students are getting a new school, and with it, a new school name, mascot and colors to match.

Families and staff will be invited this week to declare their preferences from a shortlist of rebranding ideas generated over three months by a focus group representing both school communities. Parents will receive a survey by email and are encouraged to discuss the options with their students before responding by Friday, Sept. 18. The results will be presented to the Canyons Board of Education in October.

Health Department Data Portal Tracks CSD-Associated COVID-19 Cases

As the chilly fall weather blows into the Wasatch Front — and the yearly cold and flu season begins to heat up — Canyons District families are encouraged to redouble their efforts, especially in this era of COVID-19, to do daily health checks before bundling up and heading out the door for school.

Green thumbs for 3rd graders –

Bell View’s third grade classes are using gardening to learn about how living things grow and develop.  Through the generous support of a grant from Utah Agriculture in the Classroom, they received funds to plant both fall and spring gardens.    

First, students cleaned out the garden beds to prepare them for plants.  Then students planted cold weather vegetables, such as carrots, kale, spinach, and radishes.  They also planted flowers in order to create a butterfly habitat for the butterflies they will grow later this year.  “I like gardening.  I like smelling the flowers,” said an eager third grader.  

If you swing by our garden, be sure to look with your eyes.  Our plants are fragile.  Observe how the plants change and grow over this fall and into next spring.
