CSD to offer popular fifth-grade maturation program online

While growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be.  To help families rock “the talk” — even in this pandemic year — Canyons School District is offering its popular maturation program online.

From Wednesday, Feb. 24 through July 31, fifth-grade students and their parents will be able to access the program online at no charge through a password protected link. The presentations are conducted by professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp who has been educating and entertaining young audiences, and their parents, for 20 years.

Through a time-limited license, fifth-grade families will be able to access the programs for boys and girls through a password-protected link. The aim of the program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Versions are available in English and Spanish.

Detailed instructions for accessing the courses have been emailed to all fifth-grade parents and guardians.

Families with questions are encouraged to reach out to the Main Office.

Hello Ridgecrest families,

Sorry this is so late.  I will be honest, I was watching the Super Bowl. Tonight, I want to draw your attention to a few things that are timely.  First, the learning option window opened today and will close next Sunday. Please see the paragraph below. Second, the Teacher of the Year Nominations will close tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM.  If you have a teacher you want to nominate, please get a nomination in right away. Third, the parent teacher conference scheduler is open and closes this coming Sunday. Please see the instructions below. Lastly, we end our week on Thursday with Valentine’s Day.  I am sending my love to each and every one of you.  Thank you for your patience, kindness, and understanding during this year. I appreciate you and feel blessed to work with such an amazing community!

 

Chinese New Year Thank You: I would like to thank the PTA and our fabulous Chinese teachers for hosting a fun Chinese New Year celebration day on Thursday.  The school looked beautiful and the students had a fun time in their classrooms celebrating!

 

Next Monday, Feb. 15th is President’s Day – We do not have school this day!

 

Do you want to change learning options:  The window opened today, Feb. 7th and closes on Sunday, Feb.14th.  Parents wanting to move from online to in-person or in-person to online will need to login to Skyward on one of those days and change the learning option for term 3.  The window is not flexible, so please do this as soon a possible.
