Second Step

Feelings vary in strength.  When our feelings are very strong, we need to learn how to manage them.  Calming down emotions that are getting out of control can help us to think clearly, and avoid negative consequences.  Staying in control of our emotions and actions helps us to get along better with others, and be successful in school.

Learning to recognize when our feelings are becoming too strong is very important.  When those emotions are becoming too strong we can begin to use some Calming Down strategies.  The first two steps to Calming Down are to name a Stop Signal, and to name our emotion, (Am I sad, frustrated, worried, etc.?).

If you would like to learn more about Second Step, the Social/Emotion Learning curriculum Canyons School District is using,  please log onto www.secondstep.org, (Links to an external site.) and create a family account.  You can then access videos, home links for lessons, etc.  In order to create a family account, you will need an access code.  Access codes are as follows:

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? • Time to get a jump on planning for kindergarten

The start of the 2021-2022 school year might seem like it’s light-years away, but when it comes to making arrangements for kindergarteners to attend school, the time to start planning is now. While students who are 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2021 won’t be heading to class until late next summer, there are several decisions parents and guardians will need to make before then — and it’s better to start sooner than later.

“Parents need to think about which option they want, the half-day option that we offer, or the Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program we offer as well,” said Canyons Teacher Specialist Leigh Ann Fisher. “This may determine the school their child attends, because if their boundary school isn’t offering the Supplemental program, then they need to think about, ‘Where am I willing to travel to take my child so that they have that option to have the Supplemental program as well?’”

Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2021-2022 school year. Computers are available at Canyons schools for families who do not have Internet connectivity at home. The opt-in, tuition-based program is offered at schools based on community interest and available space in the building. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
