Cultural Night at Canyon View
Come spend a few hours traveling the world without ever leaving Cottonwood Heights.  Canyon View Elementary is hosting its fourth Annual Cultural Night on April 18 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.  
For the past four years, Canyon View Elementary students have taken part in learning about different countries and regions while sharing what they have learned during a fun Cultural Night event. Each grade (K-5) selects a separate country/region that they spend a few weeks researching and learning about. The students then prepare a display with all that they have learned to share with everyone who attends the event.
Spend some time viewing the students’ unique creations, indulge in some tastes of featured region’s cuisines and even play some interactive games. When you are done touring the halls, stay for a fun talent show by the students as they perform some dances and play music from the regions they have studied. Other local cultural dance and music groups will be performing as well. Stick around for dinner from one of the area’s best food trucks which will be giving a portion of their sales back to Canyon View to help purchase iPads for the school's K-2 grades.  Participating trucks include:
Black’s Sliders
3 Brother’s Tacos
Saucey Skillet
Art City Donuts
Admission to the event is free (except the food trucks) but we are asking all attendees to bring a can(s) of food to be donated to the Utah Food Bank.  
No passport is needed to see the world at this fun event at Canyon View Elementary!
