Principal’s Message

May, 2018

Dear Parents,

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year.  I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, chaperoning, reading, organizing, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and at school.  Special thanks to our PTA who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ positive school experience.  You make our school a better place and enrich the lives of our students with the many programs and activities you sponsor.   Another thank you for all your efforts this past week to celebrate our wonderful teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.  You totally spoiled them!

A HUGE thank you goes out to the Copper Canyon teachers and staff!  Thank you to our custodian and cafeteria workers who do so much to serve our students daily.  We also have several classroom aides and recess aides who help us tremendously.  Our teachers are truly hardworking and dedicated!  A rich school experience could not occur without their endless energy, skills and devotion to students.  Thanks and well done to this incredible group of professionals.  And certainly not least, is our truly amazing office staff who welcome and love all students who come through the office.  Thanks for all you do!

I would also like to thank all students and parents.  I love working at Copper Canyon with your friendly and loving children.  They make me smile daily!  And I enjoy working with parents to find ways to help all students be successful.

A final word to Copper Canyon students:  Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year.  I am so honored to be your principal; you make me very proud.  You keep me laughing and young at heart.  I am grateful for your joy, love of learning, and amazing talents.  Best wishes to our graduating sixth graders, who will be missed.  I am so proud of your accomplishments and know you will go forth and do amazing things in the world.  I wish a safe and happy summer break to all of you.

Lastly, to everyone, please have a safe and fabulously fun-filled summer that includes much love, laughter and learning!

Warm regards,

Patty Bowen, Principal
