Mini Milers
We will have mini-milers on TUESDAY since there is no school Wed-Fri.

Report Cards are Posted!
If you haven’t checked yet, report cards are posted on the Canyon View Website via ParentVue.

Grades are assigned to assignments in the areas of Language Arts (Reading/Writing), Math, Science, Social Studies, and Health.  We score on a rubric system as follows:

4 student is working above Kindergarten level/expectations
3 student is working proficiently and meeting Kinder expectations
2 student is developing the skill but has not reached mastery yet
1 student is falling far below the Kindergarten level/expectations

Science, Social Studies, and Health are done using a more “whole group” approach to instruction.  Concepts are covered with daily work activities being used for assessment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

We had a great time making and sharing Friendship Soup today.  
Thank you for sending all the ingredients!

Thanksgiving Break Homework
Snap Word packets were sent home in Boomerang Folders today which included practice sheets for 3-4 words that your child still needs to work on.  If your child did not get a packet that means they knew all the snap words we have introduced so far.  THIS WORK IS TO BE DONE OVER THANKSGIVING BREAK AND RETURNED ON NOVEMBER 27TH

Just a reminder that the ingredients for our "Friendship Soup" is 
needed tomorrow.  That leaves time to pick up missing items and make the soup on Monday.  If you forgot what was assigned to you please let me know.

We checked out two books at the library today.  Due to Thanksgiving Break next week, (no school W-Th-F) students will keep their books until November 27th.

Your child received pictures or picture information in their Boomerang Folder. 
Mark your calendar:  
Picture retakes will be 
November 15th.

Students also brought home a flyer from SilverGraphics.  The flyer shows a picture of a piece of artwork that your child made in art class.  These priceless pieces of art can be transferred onto a variety of products that SilverGraphics makes.  There are many items to choose from, and they can make excellent gifts for family and friends just in time for the Holidays!  
If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please complete one of the following options:
* As detailed on your order form, parents may place their orders by handing in the paper order form.  Please also include a check made out to CVFFO, and return by November 13th.
* Go to, and log in with: 
        Username: ca​​​​​​​nyonview
        Password:  CVart1
*Online orders due by November 17th
If you place your order by the above deadlines, we are told that the products will be delivered to school by December 14th.  After the deadline, you may still place orders online, but you will be responsible for the cost of shipping.

It is very important that kids come to school on time (7:55).  It makes a huge difference to have students lined up on the playground ready to come in to our classroom together.  Please help by having your child dropped off on the playground by 7:50.  We have supervision available as early as 7:40 which gives everyone a chance to greet their friends and classmates before beginning their day of learning.

Thanks for the Data!
Thank you for the information you sent in regarding the letters and words your child is able to read.  The information will help us focus on letters and words we are still needing to practice.


On Friday, November 10th we will be holding our annual Community Veteran’s Walk at Sabino Canyon. We will first meet in front of the Canyon View security office at 8:00AM and then we’ll walk over to the canyon together after our school choir sings the National Anthem.  This is a special community event for our school as we want to continue to celebrate and appreciate our Veterans for the sacrifices they make for our country and their fellow Americans.
