The Utah State Office of Education has delayed the release of SAGE testing results by one week. The results now are scheduled to be released by the state on Monday, Oct. 27.

More information about SAGE, including FAQs and resources for parents, can be found at www.canyonsdistrict.org/sage.
A gridiron standout at Brighton High will dash onto the national athletic stage this January when he suits up to play in the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the country’s premiere high school football game. 

Osa Masina, who was last year’s All-Tribune Football Most Valuable Player, on Monday, Oct. 20 will receive his jersey for the bowl, which will be played in San Antonio’s Alamodome. Bowl officials will present the jersey during a 1:30 p.m. assembly in the gymnasium at Brighton High, 2220 E. Bengal Blvd.

Students, parents, patrons and Bengal supporters are invited to the jersey presentation for Masina, the 6-foot, 4-inch, 233-pound outside linebacker who is listed as a five-star recruit on Scout.com..    

The Jan. 3 bowl, which will be broadcast on NBC, pits the country’s best 90 prep players in a classic east versus west matchup.  Last year’s bowl, its 14th anniversary, drew a crowd of some 40,000 fans for the second year in a row.

As a result of Masina being selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, head coach Ryan Bullett is invited to travel to San Antonio and attend the U.S. Army Coaches Academy, an elite three-day learning experience that focuses on leadership, football and physical development. The invited coaches also attend the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Awards Show and the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. 

For more than a dozen years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has served as the pre-eminent launching pad for America’s future college and National Football League stars. In all, 274 former bowl players have been selected in the NFL draft, including 69 first-round selections and one overall No. 1 pick.

Your children are growing up. 

To help start conversations about health, wellness and the maturation process, Canyons District has developed an informational program for students and their parents.

Fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents are invited to attend maturation programs by professional presenters. We encourage all parents and their children to attend these free events together so conversations can continue in the home.

The aim with this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved maturation instruction districtwide.

Please plan to join us at one of the maturation programs for fifth-grade boys and girls in Canyons District:

Draper Park swept the sixth-annual CSD Middle School Intramural Cross Country Championship, with first place team and individual wins in both the boys and girls categories. The Vikings defeated competitors from all eight CSD middle schools at the Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014 competition at Eastmont Middle School. Teams consisted of the top three male runners and the top three female runners in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.

The event, coordinated by CSD Athletics Director Jamal Willis and Jordan High Athletics Director Brandon Watts, started with a Parade of Athletes, began with a parade of athletes, followed by a 1.5-mile cross country race around Eastmont's campus. Individual winners were awarded medals, and the fastest teams received trophies to be displayed at their respective schools.
