Principal’s Message

Dear Canyon Rim Families,

I am proud and honored to be the principal of such an outstanding elementary school. When your child is a Canyon Rim Roadrunner, you can be assured that not only is he/she receiving a high quality education, but will be surrounded by adults who truly care about his/her well-being. From the first day of school, Canyon Rim Roadrunners are instilled with the Big R: Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Learn! In addition, Roadrunners will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge.

The focus here at Canyon Rim is academic excellence. We provide a variety of opportunities for students to learn through the use of differentiated instruction to meet individual student needs. Canyon Rim teachers meet collaboratively to plan lessons which incorporate the 4 C’s: Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking and Creativity. Canyon Rim staff analyzes each student’s achievement to ensure that students are responding to instruction, and creating effective interventions for students who need them. We have a beautiful campus with technology such as Elmo projectors, SMART boards, computers, and Wi-Fi connections. In addition, we have a state of the art computer lab, 3 iPad carts, and 4 Chrome Book carts which are used to provide 21st century learning experiences. We proudly offer a variety of enriching experiences as well such as: Spatial-Temporal Math created by the MIND Institute, Art Masters, after school classes, Geography Bee, Robotics Team, Accelerated Reader, Science Olympiad, Academic Pentathlon, and Student Council.

Canyon Rim has active and involved parents who are an influential part of our school’s success. Our thriving PTA consists of parent and teacher volunteers who are dedicated to promoting the education, health, and safety of children and families. I invite you to join our PTA, run for School Site Council, or become a classroom volunteer. Please join us as valued partner!
principal Sincerely,

Erika A. Krohn, Principal
