The start of a new school year with its new routines, rules and expectations can be stressful for children and parents. At Canyons District, it’s something to celebrate. 

Per tradition, CSD schools will literally roll out the red carpet to greet students the first day of school. The celebratory start helps students feel welcome while underscoring the importance of school as a child’s ticket to the show of life – and this year, players from the Real Monarchs will join schools in giving students the royal treatment.

As students enter the building, players from the professional soccer team, parents, teachers and Principals will line the red carpet to cheer our up-and-coming college- and career-ready stars. Each student will receive a free pencil, enthusiastic high-five’s and two-for-one ticket voucher for Canyons District Night at Rio Tinto on Friday, Aug. 25.

The vouchers entitle families to one free ticket for every full-price ticket they purchase to the Friday, Aug. 25 Monarchs game, which starts at 7 p.m. Tickets range in price from $8 to $15, and can be purchased at the ticket counter or online

While enjoying the game, watch for inspirational “stay-in-school” messages on the stadium videoboards. Bennett Chew, a senior at Hillcrest High, will perform the National Anthem, and Alta High’s nationally-acclaimed soccer coach Lee Mitchell will perform the opening coin toss.

Bring your whole family to this start-of-school party!
