School lunches. Special education grants. Training for teachers and support for families in need. Census results, and the programs and resources tied to them, affect our students every day. A complete headcount of everyone living in the country, the census only comes around once every 10 years, and the time to be counted — and to make sure your community receives its fair share of federal funding for schools — is coming. This month, every person living in Utah will take part in the 2020 Census. It’s possible to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail starting March 12. It takes only 10 minutes, the information is kept strictly confidential, and if you don’t have access to a computer at home, we can help. Join us for “We Count Week,” March 16-20, and come complete the census at one of four Canyons District-sponsored Open House events. https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12447-the-2020-census-is-coming-make-sure-you-re-counted
Girls on the Run Starts March 9!
Heart & Sole • Middle School Program for 6th – 8th grade girls

Team Camelot 8th grade students are rocking their “Exploration and Action” projects this year, and are seeking to make a difference! Options this year included doing a science fair project, or yearlong projects pertaining to global impacts or an endangered species. This quarter all students are developing and implementing a plan to design a solution to their researched problem. Hooray for using learning to solve problems!
Aspen Edwards and Maelie McCoy represented Camelot 8 and Albion at the Canyons School District Science Fair and will be progressing to the Regional Science Fair at the University of Utah! Science RULES!
