Parent and Family Involvement

Our parent/family involvement groups meet regularly to support Canyon and its students in a number of ways!

Canyon PTA

The Canyon PTA meets five times during the school year and supports a number of programs, activities, and events on campus.  We need your support!   All Canyon parents and families are invited to attend meetings to learn more about school programs, fundraisers to support the school, and ways to get involved.  For the 2020-2021 school year meetings will be held virtually starting at 7 pm.  Click here to access the Canyon PTA Website.

African American Alliance Network (AAAN)

The Canyon Middle School African American Alliance Network (“AAAN”) is a group of parents that works with school administrators, teachers and students to support knowledge, understanding  and appreciation of African American heritage and culture, and to build a community that helps to enrich the experiences of the African American student body at Canyon. Any adult in the Canyon community is welcome to participate in this group, and we particularly encourage parents/caregivers of students of African American heritage to join our group. Meetings are typically held the first Wednesday of every month starting at 6:30 pm (See Flyer).
