    Sonic Cards- We have Sonic cards to sell for $5 each. All of the money will go directly to taking some of the amount off of the your individual payment. If you are interested in trying to sell some Sonic cards, please email me how many and I can send them home with your child, and then just send the cash in once you sell them.

     

    Fall Festival- Our Fall Festival is Friday, October 25th. All students have been working hard to create themed photo booths for the festival. Students are going to charge money for the photos and all the money will go towards our PALI field trip. Students have really been excited about this project, and we hope everyone can attend the festival. We will need students to sign up and work the booth in 15-20 minute increments so that they also have time to enjoy the festival. This is also a great way for NJHS to earn their community service hours.

  • Hello and welcome to the Renaissance program at Canyon Springs! I look forward to having an exciting school year. The Renaissance program is an amazingly unique program where students are able to think deeper and work as a team across subjects and grade levels. We have the ability to slow down and help our students gain a deeper understanding of the curriculum and the world they live in. Students will be participating in many group and individual problem based lessons, socratic discussions, and projects in Social Studies this year. We are a family, who support each other, and learn from one another, and we are excited for a wonderful, new school year.
