Announcements from the Front Office

The safety of our Canyon Ridge students and families is of paramount importance.  When dropping off and picking up your child PLEASE make sure to practice good driving safety procedures, including no illegal u-turns, students exiting the car on the curb side only, students and parents crossing ONLY at designated crosswalks and no stopping, standing or parking in areas designated with traffic signs or as a bike lane.  And most of all, PLEASE follow the posted speed limits for the area.  You can refer to our "Safe Route to School Map" on our CRS website by clicking "School Boundary Maps" and locate the safest route to school and dropp off area for your child.

The 8th grade team works hard to specialize instruction to each individual student at their appropriate level to fit their specialized needs. We are strongly data driven, and we use our benchmark tests to help us design lessons and learning activities for students that meet their unique needs and interests. Each student in the 8th grade is seen as an individual. Our number one goal is to have all students succeed past high school and beyond. We focus on building relationships, understanding of cooperative learning, developing real life application skills, and going deeper into content with highly rigorous activities. We align our lessons with the vision of Canyon Ridge. To provide students with the most beneficial educational experience teachers and parents must work together, so we encourage an open line of communication. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and concerns. We are open to hear any concerns or questions you may have.
