5th Grade Maturation

Posted in News & Announcements

Your children are growing up.  

To help start conversations about health, wellness and the maturation process, Canyons District has developed an informational program for students and their parents.

Fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents are invited to attend maturation programs by professional presenters. We encourage all parents and their 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 individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved maturation instruction districtwide.

Please plan to join us at one of the maturation programs for fifth-grade boys and girls in Canyons District: 

For Boys 

  • Feb. 11 — Draper Park Middle, 13133 S. 1300 East, 7-8 p.m.
  • Feb. 18 — Eastmont Middle, 10100 S. 1300 East, 7-8 p.m.

For Girls  

  • Feb. 10 — Draper Park Middle, 13133 S. 1300 East, 7-8 p.m.
  • Feb. 19 — Eastmont Middle, 10100 S. 1300 East, 7-8 p.m.

SEP/Parent Teacher conferences are quickly approaching.  Conferences will be held on Monday, February 2nd and Wednesday, February 4th this school year in order to help those families that have students in the middle schools as well.  This was done for the first time last year and is continuing this year. Please note that we DO NOT have conferences on February 3rd.  

We use the Online Scheduler to arrange our Parent Teacher Conference appointments. The Online Scheduler provides a greater flexibility in scheduling appointments with our teachers.  


Kindergarten 2015-2016 School Year

Posted in News & Announcements

It is important that we obtain an accurate count of all children qualifying for Kindergarten in the Canyons School District for the 2015-2016 school year. If you have a child who will be five years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2015, the child qualifies for next year’s kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date.  Forms are available in our front office.  

Mark your calendars:  We will hold a Kindergarten Orientation on March 27th from 2:00-3:00pm.
