Canyon View FFO


STEAM Club - February 28

The Parts of a Mangonel - a type of catapultJoin us for the February 2018 edition of STEAM Club.  We will build Mangonel, a type of catapult, and explore the forces that power the ancient device.

First and second graders will meet at lunch after they eat. Third through fifth will meet after school until 4 pm.

Seeking Parent Volunteers

This is my last year facilitating STEAM Club. It has been an absolute joy to share my love of science, engineering, and making with the kids of Canyon View for the past three years. Rather than ask a single parent to take on STEAM Club, we are looking to have parents take on specific months - sharing a project that comes from their knowledge and passions. You don't need to be a scientist, engineer, or educator to lead a STEAM Club activity. There are a ton of resources on the Internet for tried and true STEAM activities. I maintain a Pintrest board of ideas that have formed the core of many of our projects. If you are interested in facilitating one or more months of the STEAM Club next year, please contact Laura Hisey from the FFO or Principal Rob Henikman.

The STEAM Club is looking for a new facilitator to take over in August 2018. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to facilitate the STEAM Club - you just need a passion for bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math to our kids.
