5th Grade Maturation
Parents and Students,
We are putting the finishing touches on the fliers and postcards that announce the dates, times and loctions for the maturation presentations for fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents. The fliers will be sent to yu in District Mail; the postcards will be sent to students' homes via the U.S. Postal Service. We encourage all parents and their children to attend these free events together so conversations can continue in the home. The aim with this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive, and approved maturation instruction districtwide. For your newsletters, website and social media posts, here are dates, times and locations.

Starting this fall, all elementary schools in Canyons District will adopt a new schedule that is designed to help each individual child achieve academic success. The new schedule establishes consistent daily instructional time five days per week and redistributes time in the regular workday for teachers to plan individually and in teams so that they can give special attention to each child's achievement. While the new elementary schedule calls for full days (6 hours and 30 minutes) of instruction Monday through Friday, it doesn’t do away with early-out Fridays altogether. Seven early-out Fridays have been planned to give teachers time for professional development. Those early-out days will be Sept. 26, Oct. 24, Dec. 5, Jan. 30, Feb. 20, March 27, and April 24.
