Principal’s Message

May, 2021

Dear Parents,

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year.  It was an unusual year with some twists and turns we could not anticipate, but we saw it through to the end with flying colors!  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.

A HUGE thank you goes out to the Copper Canyon teachers and staff!  They blazed new trails of excellence with all that was asked of them! Our teachers are truly hardworking and dedicated. A rich school experience could not occur without their endless energy, skills, and devotion to students.  Thank you and well done to this incredible group of professionals.

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.   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 am truly honored to be their principal.  Parents, I enjoy working with you to find ways to help all students be successful.

As summer approaches, please continue to help your children grow academically over the break by reading 20 minutes every day.  Help keep your student’s skills fresh!  Encourage them to participate in the Read Today: Read With the Bees program at  This site helps kids track their reading and receive fun prizes through the mail. Also, there are two reading/phonics programs (RAZ Kids and LEXIA) that students have been using during the school year that will be available for home use throughout the summer.  Please take advantage of these programs.

Finally, I wish you a safe and fabulously fun-filled summer!  See you back in August!

Warm regards,

Patty Bowen, Principal
