Subsidized Internet

As part of continued efforts to bridge the digital divide for our students, Canyons is again partnering with the Comcast Corporation to cover monthly Internet connection costs for families in need. Here’s how to see if your home is eligible.

  • Call your child’s school and ask for the person over Internet Essentials.
  • If you qualify for the program, the school will provide you with a sign-up code.
  • Call 844-963-0178 and provide Comcast with your sign-up code. You will also be asked to provide your home

address and to choose if you want the WIFI equipment shipped to you, installed by a technician, or held for pickup at a local Xfinity location. You may also be asked to provide your Social Security Number and/or Driver’s License number, but there is no obligation to share this information.

Note: Not all home addresses are eligible for Comcast connectivity. Our offer of subsidized WIFI is only available within Comcast’s service area.

Parking Lot Tip / After School Pickup

After the final bell has rung for the school day students are asked to leave their grade level doors and to head home. All students should be heading to their designated areas to be picked up etc. and should be off of the school campus by 3:30 pm. Students are not to be on playground areas after school hours unless accompanied by an adult or as part of a school sponsored program. All students remaining on campus are asked by school staff to come into the office to call parents to get a safe way home.

Early Out Day / Day Off Next Week

As a reminder, due to parent teacher conferences, next Thursday September 29th is an early out day. All students will follow the Friday bell schedule. All grades 1-5th and supplemental kindergarten will be released at 1:15 pm. AM/PM kinder parents, please follow their Friday schedule.

T-Shirt Orders

The PTA is going to be finalizing their Sunrise spirit wear orders. If you have an interest in ordering a Sunrise T-shirt, sweatshirt/hoodie please refer to the flyer in this newsletter for a QR code to order. ALL ORDERS need to be in by September 30th- no exceptions.

Book Blitz

Have you ever heard of Book Blitz Jr? It is a new extended learning opportunity in which 4-5th grade students work in teams to read and study a number of titles based on grade level over the course of several months. They will then participate in “Jeopardy style” competitions to demonstrate their knowledge of the books, first at the school level, followed by the winning 4th-5th grade team moving on to the district competition against 4th-5th grade teams from other district elementary schools.

In order to run this program at our school we would need several volunteers to work with the teams, are you interested in making it happen? Please contact Krystina Richins (our school PTA president) at stina.richins@gmail.com to let her know. We need to get a response no later than September 29th.
