Principal's Message

Dear Canyon Rim Families,

Welcome to Canyon Rim Elementary School.  I am proud and honored to be the principal of such an outstanding elementary school. When your child is a Canyon Rim Roadrunner, you can be assured that not only is he/she receiving a high quality education, but will be surrounded by adults who truly care about his/her well-being. From the first day of school, Canyon Rim Roadrunners are instilled with the Big R: Respectful, Responsible, Ready to Learn and a Kind Heart!

Canyon Rim offers a unique, enriched, integrated curriculum, accompanied by a strong core of basic skills for all students.  Students will construct knowledge, while classrooms provide an environment that fosters curiosity to explore and experiment while mastering basic skills and concepts.  Canyon Rim is committed to providing a safe environment that promotes a climate of caring, respect and personal responsibility.

Canyon Rim has a strong reputation of academic excellence.  Our academic program includes 21st Century learning and teaching. Each classroom is furnished with technology such as Elmo projector, 75” SMART television, and a computer/i-pad for each student. Canyon Rim teachers develop lessons which incorporate the 5 C’s: Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Character.  We utilize districted adopted curriculum as well as other instructional materials/resources to enhance the learning of students. We provide students opportunities to show learning in multiple ways, opportunities to extend their learning, and differentiated projects. We integrate student skills, strengths and interests to engage students in learning. We want our students to think like scientists, authors, mathematicians and historians. Canyon Rim proudly offers a variety of enriching experiences as well such as: Art Masters, after school classes, Robotics, Accelerated Reader, Science Olympiad, Academic Pentathlon, and Student Council. 

Our State of the Art classrooms and enrichment programs would not be possible without the influential and generous support of our PTA who are dedicated to promoting the education, health, and safety of children and families. I invite you to join our PTA, run for School Site Council, or become a classroom volunteer. Please join us as valued partner!
