Kick Off the School Year with Real Monarchs

 The start of a new school year with its new routines, new rules and new expectations can be stressful for children and parents, but at Canyons District, it’s something to celebrate. Per tradition, CSD schools will literally roll out the red carpet to greet students the first day of school. The celebratory start helps students feel welcome while underscoring the importance of school as a child’s ticket to the show of life — and this year, players from the Real Monarchs will join the festivities. Each CSD student will receive a two-for-one ticket voucher to attend a Monarchs game along with a special invitation to Canyons District Night at Rio Tinto on Aug. 25. Check canyonsdistrict.org for more details. 

High-Five to Helping Hands

Thank You, Volunteers!

 Cottonwood Heights-area schools enjoy uncommon levels of community support. Last year, more than 12,500 volunteers — about one volunteer for every three Canyons District students — registered to lend a hand in CSD schools, be it to read with a child or help a student master multiplication tables. Together, they contributed more than 233,000 hours of service, making a difference where it matters most. To the parents, grandparents, community members and local businesses who signed up to lend a hand: Canyons District extends its heartfelt thanks. Interested in joining the volunteer team?
