Real Salt Lake is helping the Canyons District community celebrate the many goals achieved during the school year and kick off a summer of fun.
On Friday, May 24, just days before the start of the summer hiatus, Real Salt Lake is hosting Canyons District Night at Rio Tinto Stadium. The game against Atlanta United will be a celebration of the end of school, as well as the academic, athletic and artistic endeavors accomplished over the past nine months.
Discount tickets to the 7:30 p.m. game can be purchased online. The reduced cost — $23 per ticket — is available to the Canyons District community. From the tab "Ticket Offers," use the promo code “CSD” to snag tickets at the reduced rates. The team is providing the reduced rate so more people can come cheer for their favorite hard-working teachers.
Halftime will be dedicated to honoring the excellence and commitment of the 47 top teachers from all CSD elementary, middle and high schools. Right after the 35th minute of the game, the school-based Teacher of the Year will be escorted to the middle of the field at Rio Tinto to be applauded by thousands.
Special recognition will be given to Midvale Elementary’s Jessica Beus, who was announced last month of the District’s 2019 Teacher of the Year. Beus is Canyons’ official nominee in the Utah Teacher of the Year competition. CSD’s top middle school teacher is Eastmont Middle’s Anna Alger and the top high school teacher is Hillcrest’s Josh Long.
Each of CSD’s Teachers of the Year were given complimentary tickets for themselves and a guest, courtesy of Real Salt Lake and Sandy City, in appreciation of their service to students and the larger community.
