Principal’s Message:
Dear Canyon View Families, I hope everyone had a nice Rodeo Break and that the blast of winter weather provided some excitement for you and your families. Today report cards are being sent home and our teachers have spent numerous hours preparing the reports and writing comments. If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress or the information that is contained on the report card please contact your child’s teacher and they will be happy to review the report with you. On March 9-10 the Tucson Festival of Books will again be held at the University of Arizona. An email was sent earlier this week with details of the various events and authors who will be attending this year’s festival. If you are planning on attending this popular event, be sure to stop by to visit us in the main area at booth #473. In response to last month’s successful readathon, Canyon View’s FFO will be hosting a Star Party on Thursday, March 14 from 6-8 p.m. This year’s Star Party will have a wide variety of hands-on learning opportunities for children and adults alike. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with the Tucson Amateur Astronomers and look up at the night sky through their high-powered telescopes, check out moon rocks that are on loan from NASA, and handle (and take home) real meteorites that have been discovered from around the world. There are many more unique and fun learning opportunities for our students and families and we hope to see you there! On Friday, March 15, we will be on half-day schedule due to spring conferences. Since it is only a halfday, teachers generally plan on holding conferences with just a few families. Each grade level has a separate conference plan that suits their grade level configuration. If your child’s teacher(s) feel that a conference is needed you should be hearing from them in the coming days. Have a wonderful weekend! Sincerely, Rob Henikman Principal

MARCH 1, 2013 Attention, Canyon View Coyotes! Caught Ya Showing Good Character We caught 4th Grade - Which grade level is next?

Character Counts on the Playground Mr. Suter Interview Questions Jacob W. - “How long have students been playing soccer at break and lunch at Canyon View?” Mr. Suter- “ For all of my 20 years here.” Jacob W.- “ How do students show good character?” Mr. Suter- “There are a lot of different ways. They are kind to each other. On the soccer field, they pass the ball and say encouraging words. Riley G. Interview Questions Jack S.- “What made you start to play soccer?” Riley G.- “Because I saw Mr. Suter playing.” Jack S.- “How awesome is it to score a goal?” Riley G.- “It’s really awesome. I wish I could score 5 goals.” Jack S.- “How cool is it to get passed to on the soccer field?” Riley G.- “It’s really fun.” Jack S.- “Which character trait is most shown on the soccer field?” Riley G.- “Fairness.”



Not only do the students show good character on the playground, Mr. Suter’s homeroom showed good citizenship at the last school board meeting. They practiced by doing interviews with Mr. Henikman in Mrs. Ghori’s social studies class.



Mr. Suter’s homeroom arrived at the board meeting a couple of minutes before starting time. They used the extra minutes to introduce their parents to the board members. They had practiced introductions with Mr. Henikman and Mrs. Ghori in social studies class. When the meeting began, the students walked to the front of the room and led the members of the board in the Pledge of Allegiance. The board members were very impressed. Later in the meeting, Mr. Bergan asked the students to justify what symbol of America they thought represented democracy the best. - by Haiden S. and Sierra R.

Notification of Pest Control State Law (House Bill 2135, Chapter 102) requires the school district to notify parents, legal guardians, and employees 48 hours prior to pest/weed control treatments. In accordance with these requirements, Essential Pest, vendor for pesticide treatment, will visit our school once month to inspect building exteriors, kitchen areas, and restrooms, and to perform pest control treatments of those areas, as required. Our current pest control program does not include pesticide applications inside classrooms. Such applications are performed only if infestation occurs. Essential Pest will treat Canyon View on the third Tuesday of each month. Additional information may be obtained from the Environmental Health and Safety Office at the district office at 299-6446.
