I need to let you all know that our student teacher, Ms. Hweimel, will no longer be at Copper Canyon. We will still have Mrs. Amaton in the afternoons.
We have another busy week ahead. Hopefully, all my scholars will stay healthy :)
Another piece of exciting news, our Little Free Library has been published in the "City Sun Times" newspaper. You can pick up a copy at local businesses. You can also read the article here. The hard copy includes pictures of the kids that built the Little Free Library and of the actual Library. You can also check out the Copper Canyon Little Free Library website
The United Parent Council has some great parent information opportunities. Click here to view the flyer.
Have a great week!
