Canyons District families on Feb. 1, 2019 via email. Detailed instructions also will be published
1-16 & 1-21, 2019 on the District’s website: Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2019 to

application window will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 2, and computers will be available
at Canyons schools for families who do not have Internet connectivity at home. Those students
who are accepted into the classes will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every
school day. Enrollees begin and end school at the same time as the school’s first- through fifthgrade
students. The cost for the program is $2,950 a year, and can be paid in monthly
installments, August-May. A 10 percent discount is available for parents and guardians who pay
the yearly tuition in full at one time. There also is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of
$100. Financial-need scholarships also are available for qualifying students. Parents may apply
for the financial assistance at the same time they submit enrollment applications.
à We are STILL in need of emergency substitute teachers. Emergency substitutes register with the
district to sub at Butler Elementary on occasions when a regular substitute is not available. Contact
Teresa in the front office for more info and instructions for signing up.

Due to changes in the funding structure for Junior Achievement and Biz Town, we are looking for a
sponsor or sponsors to allow us to continue this program. The cost of the sponsorship is $2500. If you
own or are a part of a business looking for an opportunity to donate and possibly incur a tax benefit,
