At Canyon View Elementary our kids are fortunate to be able to have: Science, Art, Music, IMPACT and PE Programs. These programs used to be funded through the school district but with shrinking budgets they are now funded by generous parents like you through the foundation.
The Art Program that is a part of our students’ bi-weekly experience provides the kids with an opportunity to learn about various artists, from famous masters, to modern and current artists who are making new roads in the art world. The students learn about some of the basics, like tracing, drawing and collaging, but they also move onto more advanced concepts based on line, shape, and composition. We explore color, using various techniques including paint, markers, and pencils. The students love getting to create a piece of art with clay. They go through the full process of creating from the moldable clay, to glazing their own fired ceramic piece, and seeing the effects of the firing process on the raw clay, and the glaze.
Angie Serrano has been teaching music and theatre classes at various schools in PUSD since 2003. Through choir programs, after-school theatre workshops and music curriculum in the schools, she loves sharing music and performance skills with elementary and middle school aged children. Angie has been involved with our own Canyon View students over the last several years helping with the 3rd Grade Patriotic Show and after school enrichment classes. She looks forward to working with K – 5th graders throughout the next school year!
The Canyon View Foundation is very excited to announce that we hired a PE Instructional Assistant, Ryan Rogers at Canyon View. Thanks to continued parent support of Foundation fundraisers, we were able to add this position to supplement instruction already being done by our Canyon View teachers. Ryan is a Canyon View Dad that many kids know as the Neon Ninja from our jog-a-thon. Please congratulate Ryan when you see him.
