Dear Parents and Guardians:
We are looking forward to another great school year at Willow Canyon. We are dedicated to ensuring your child has a positive and successful learning experience. The support you provide is greatly valued and makes a difference for your children.
Our theme for the year is “I Can Follow the Wildcat Way to Success.” Our primary goal is to understand and meet student needs for learning. Willow Canyon offers a multi-tiered system of supports involving enrichment activities to extend student learning strengths, and focused interventions to support specific learning needs. We provide positive behavior interventions and supports and teach your child how to manage his or her own behavior during the school day. Willow Canyon teachers are knowledgeable, dedicated, talented, and maintain high achievement expectations for all students. We want every student to be successful.
We are focused on meeting Canyons School District’s goal of every student being college, career, and citizenship ready when they graduate from high school. Elementary school provides the important foundation required for students to meet this goal.
The Willow Canyon community is wonderful! We feel fortunate to have the support that is provided from the families and also the PTA and School Community Council. We value the partnership we have with each of you, as well as our shared goal of every child feeling valued and being successful.
We look forward to a great school year!
Wildcats Follow the Wildcat Way to Success by demonstrating they know the school expectations of being safe, respectful, and responsible!
We are talking with the students about being responsible this month. Our definition of being responsible is that a responsible person is dependable. If you are responsible, your teachers and parents can count on you to; 1) do what you say, 2) give your best effort, and 3) take care of the things you are accountable for doing. A responsible person is also able to independently make good choices. If they make a mistake, they answer for their own behavior - they don't make excuses.
The Willow Canyon Student Council organized a service project for the Utah Food Bank called Trick or Treat for Cans. The goal was to gather 1,500 pounds in canned goods. To date, 1, 800 pounds of food has been donated. Thank you Willow Canyon Families for being so generous and helping us not only meet but exceed our goal!
