5th Grade Photo Booth

We’re ready for you! Come snap a picture to commemorate your time at Peruvian Park. Photo booth will be available all day and evening. We’d love to see your picture. Email to

5th Grade Celebration

We won’t be able to celebrate with the 5th grade students in our traditional ceremony, but we don’t want them to miss out.  The teachers are planning a virtual celebration on Friday, May 22.  Since the photo booth is always a favorite at the 5th grade party, we will create a photo spot with a banner and balloons for you on the same day.  Come to the school throughout the day starting at 8:30 a.m. and snap a few pictures by the front doors to commemorate your time at Peruvian Park.  We would love for you to share your pictures with us. Please remember to observe social distancing.  We will miss you 5th graders!

Student Belongings

Thank you parents, guardians, friends and family members for joining us today to pick-up student belongings.  We had over 90% of the bags collected and brought home.  We also had a huge number of library and classroom books turned in as well.  Mrs. Petersen will get these logged in next week and notify and families who still have books at home.  I need to give a huge shout out to all of our assistants and teachers who prepared the student bags.  Also, Wendy Court, Nick Willie, Erica Haugen and Doug Nelson helped me haul the hundreds of bags to the parking lot this morning to get them ready for you.

As mentioned in previous emails, we will not be able to store any of the remaining bags. Bags have been placed by the front doors if you would like to pick them up tonight or over the weekend. All bags remaining on Monday after noon will be discarded. 

I absolutely loved getting to see so many of the children today.  It warmed my heart to have them back at the school, if only for a few minutes.

CSD Sponsors ‘Parenting in a Pandemic’ Support Group

Juggling work demands while helping your child navigate online learning. Searching for happy diversions to fill the hours spent in forced confinement. Seesawing between moments of hope and clarity and fear and frustration.

Parenting in a pandemic has its ups and downs. But, as it’s been said, we’re all in this together — so why not take a little comfort from others who are going through it, too? In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Canyons District is sponsoring a “Parenting in a Pandemic” support group with sessions running every Tuesday afternoon and evening throughout May.

Enrolling your Child for School During the COVID-19 School Dismissal

Are you looking to enroll a child in one of our schools — now, or for the coming year

Canyons School District has launched an online enrollment portal to assist families in registering new students during the COVID-19 pandemic so they can take advantage of the at-home instruction being provided throughout the “soft closure” of our schools. Traditionally, students who are new to Canyons have had to register in person so they can provide verifiable copies of their birth certificate along with other required documentation.

Now, to streamline the process, the District has created a way for families to scan and preliminarily submit those documents online. The online tool is available to all those enrolling in Canyons for the first time, whether they’ve recently relocated here and need to enroll in classes immediately, or they’re a toddler preparing for “big kid school” in the fall.
