Dear COES Families,

We have a busy week in store for Canyon Oaks students!

Starting Monday morning, our students will get to experience Alaska sled dogs up close and personal as we welcome Lorraine Temple and her Alaska Husky Spirit assembly.

Kindergarten through 2nd grade students will attend the 8:30 a.m. assembly, and 3rd – 5th grade students will attend the 9:45 a.m. assembly.

On Thursday, April 12th, students in grades 1-4 will participate in Junior Achievement Day.

Students will particiapte in a series of grade-appropriate lessons taught by trained volunteers from Wells Fargo Bank, focusing on business and economics.

The program will begin at the beginning of the morning and last until noon.

Kindergarten and 5th Grade students will participate at a later date due to previously scheduled events.
