Fifteen-year-old survives lung surgery to compete in national bowling championship  Emily Pelzer was just 7 years old when she first saw a school flier inviting kids to come bowling. It seemed like it could be fun, so she asked her mom if they could go. Eight years later, the soon-to-be sophomore at Hillcrest is still bowling — but the sport has become much more than a hobby. It’s a lifeline. It turns out Pelzer is a natural at the sport. One year after she showed up to the bowling alley for the first time, the 8-year-old won her first national…
A summer academy created to put entering Hillcrest High freshmen on the path to excel their first, make-or-break, and beyond, has earned CSD the honor of being named a 2017 District of Distinction by District Administration Magazine.

Happy 8th Birthday Canyons District

When Canyons, the first new school district in Utah in 100 years, opened its doors in 2009, the mandate was clear: Do what it takes to help students achieve their highest potential. If that means creating programs whereby middle schoolers can get a jump on high school and high schoolers can get a jump on college, so be it. If that means harnessing resources to pay teachers a professional wage, consider it done. It that means partnering with the community to spark innovations in the classroom, we’ll make it happen. July 1, 2017 marks the successful conclusion of another year…
It’s the height of summer, a time for backyard barbecues and beach vacations. But we’re busy preparing for the start of school—and to help families plan, we’re letting you know that online registration for the 2017-2018 school year begins on Aug. 3, 2017.Already have vacation plans for Aug. 3?
