COMMUNITY WIDE FUNDING CAMPAIGN FOR CANYON HIGH SCHOOL:  The Canyon High School Week of Giving is coming, November 27th to December 1st.  Spread the word, and join us as we reach out to our community, our families, and our alumni to raise the $800,000 Canyon needs to renovate our forty-four year old gym.



We need new bleachers with an ADA compliant design that is wheelchair accessible, new wood flooring to replace the warped and worn out surface, and fresh paint.  All families and businesses that donate $333 or more will receive special recognition on a new donor wall in the renovated gym.


As a reminder, the Measure S funds can only be used for educational buildings, like the new upcoming science labs and classrooms. So we need to work together to make this happen. If the funds are raised, we could start this project as early as this summer.


Show your "Commitment to the C" and get your family to donate. For more information and to donate go to
