Adopt-a-Family Holiday Drive Begins!

Dear Canyon View Families,

For many, the holiday season conjures up memories of joyous family gatherings, favorite foods and wonderful gifts. This time of year also reminds us how fortunate we are to have all of the basic needs provided for us without a second thought.  Unfortunately, not all families are lucky to have these cheerful remembrances and needs met.  Under the leadership of Canyon View’s Student Advisory Board, the staff and students at Canyon View Elementary will be participating in a school-wide Adopt-A-Family Project, and we would like to share with families the idea of making wonderful holiday memories.


Through a local community partnership, each Canyon View classroom will be assigned to a family in need of assistance.  Classes will take part in what we hope will make the holiday season a memorable time for the children and parents.  If there are families within our own school community that are in need of assistance, we encourage them to please contact our school counselor, Mr. Francart at 209-7705 or by email: dfrancart@cfsd16.orgAll information would be confidential and handled with the upmost respect for privacy.

The Adopt-A-Family Project will run from
 November 28 through December 16.  In the coming days, a wish list from our adopted families will be sent outlining gift items as well as basic household items that are needed. We are asking for your generous support. Your involvement can make a significant difference in helping us bring some holiday cheer to these families.  Each teacher will email their classroom parents the itemized list of gifts and essentials that are being requested.  Canyon View families are encouraged to sign-up for an item or two and bring the purchased item(s) to their child’s classroom. Each classroom will have a collection box to store the gifts during the length of the project. The sign-up process will ensure that we do not receive repeats of the same items.

 Friday, December 16 each grade level will bring their box of donations to awaiting delivery trucks that will transport the goods to the families in need.  These grateful parents will then be able to wrap the gifts for their children just in time for the holiday.

At Canyon View, we are committed to teaching our students the meaning and value of the Six Pillars of Character, and the Adopt-A-Family Project is a great way to instill these important traits in our children. 

 Thank you for supporting this special project.
