If something you are looking for is missing, please go to "Contact Ms Shoptaw" and make a suggestion. Thanks! 

You can find information about your PE and/or Drama class here. 
             I will try to update daily (but it may be every other day). 


Grades have been updated, as of 1/14/19

Grades on Aeries will be updated (at minimum) once per week, generally on Friday or Saturday--these grades reflect daily and weekly progress, without the breakdown of individual assignments/activities. Please check with Ms Shoptaw about individual assignments.


Do you still need help opening your locker? You can check out this YouTube video, How to open (Your Locker) a combination lock (Please note: YouTube is blocked at school, so you'll have to watch the video at home or the library).

PLEASE NOTE: (PE Department Policy) If you bring a "note" excusing you from the Mile run on a Monday, you will need to make it up after school on the following Thursday.  We will have a PE teacher available to give you a make-up time. This does not include Doctor's notes (Medical excuses). (Ms. Shoptaw's class...You can also use this to make up a Monday absence!)  ALSO:  If you miss another day's rubric run (by note or absence) throughout the week, you will need to make it up (see the page "P.E. Make-up work and Extra Credit" on the left, for what you can do!)

The daily schedule at Canyon is as follows: Traditional days will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Collaboration days will be Wednesday (early release).

Be sure to email me if you have any questions!
