Principal’s Message

Dear Roadrunner Parents,

Thank you for trusting us with your children.  We believe the parent, teacher, student, and community partnerships are what makes our students and school so successful.  Our PTA continues to grow and so do our scores.  At Canyon Rim, we believe that through our connected efforts, all students can and will achieve.  We appreciate everything you do from donating your time, money, and resources to make our school a place of excellence.  We want to encourage all families to get in involved because when we all do a little, we accomplish greatness.  Go Roadrunners!

Our PTA is kicking off our annual membership drive. Your membership and donations go a long way in helping to make Canyon Rim a school of choice. As your new principal, I have met with all teachers and compiled a list of needs, which is approximately $350,000. I am working with teachers to prioritize our list of these needs. Students still do not have 1:1 devices, there are very few SmartBoards in the classroom, and of those, they are practically obsolete. Teachers have not had access to paid digital tools, making differentiation difficult. My goal is to bring our technology into the 21st Century and add training and resources to make our STEAM lab a model for others. I have approximately $75,000 in our total budget allocations. We still have a long way to go in closing the gap in our funding needs. I will be sharing more about our needs at our first PTA meeting if you are interested in learning more. Your generosity will go directly to increasing student achievement and ensuring that our students can compete locally and globally. Thank you for considering a donation. We can’t do it without you!

Mrs. Michelle D. Owen, Ed. D.
