Teacher of the Year Nominations

Posted in News & Announcements

It’s been said that the influence of a great teacher can never be erased. To celebrate the indelible marks that educators make in the lives of children, the Canyons Board of Education and Administration are asking for nominations for the District’s 2019 Teacher of the Year. 

The community is invited to submit nominations for this year’s top-teacher award, which will be presented to one educator at a community reception and announcement ceremony on Tuesday, April 23 at the Canyons Administration Building-East, 9361 S. 300 East.  The event, to be in the Professional Development Center, is free to the public. 

To nominate a stellar CSD teacher, fill out the nomination form and return it to your PTA/PTSA or the school where the teacher works. Click here for the form. Nominations for the prestigious award will be accepted until Friday, Feb. 1. 

Following a selection process established nearly a decade ago, Canyons District recognizes a Teacher of the Year at every CSD school. Forty-eight teachers are cheered for their outstanding instructional practices, positive engagement with parents, and professional approach to their craft.

From that field, the District selects one teacher to represent the District in the state top-teacher competition. That educator also will receive the 2019 Apex Award for Teacher of the Year — the highest honor given to teachers by the Canyons Board of Education. 

For the second year, the Canyons Board and Administration will announce one top teacher from the elementary, middle and high school levels. One of those three will be named the District’s top teacher. 

Every school-based Teacher of the Year will receive a basket of donated gifts, a banner with their name to hang outside the school. The Canyons District Teacher of the Year program is generously supported by local businesses and the Canyons Education Foundation.

Kindergarten Pre-Registration 2019-2020

Posted in News & Announcements

It is important that we obtain an accurate count of all children qualifying for kindergarten in the Canyons School District for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have a child who will be five years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2019, the child qualifies for next year's kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date.

We will hold a Kindergarten Orientation on April 19, 2019. Orientation details and registration packets will be mailed out in March 2019 if you fill out the form below.

Students who do NOT live in Lone Peak Elementary boundaries must fill out a permit application online at permits.canyonsdistrict.org. Permits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The open enrollment permit window closes on February 13, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.

At this time, we do not know how many kindergarten sessions we will have next year. We hope to have this information and session preference forms sent home with registration packets.

  • If you are interested in the tuition-based, all-day, Supplemental Kindergarten Program, please look for information, starting February 1st at ksih.canyonsdistrict.org. The first-come, first-serve, application window will open online on February 15, 2019.

If you have neighbors who have qualifying kindergarten children, please share this information with them. For additional questions, please call the school at 801-826-8650.
