Upcoming Events 

Mad as a Hatter Gala

Thanks to all who have purchased tickets! We are excited to welcome you at this magical event on Saturday, May 14th at The View on Lonsdale. 

Because of your generous support we have already sold over 95% of all tickets. Please help us make this a “Sell Out” event! To reach our goal of having all Gala tickets sold before we head off for spring break, we have extended the early bird ticket pricing of$79 to Friday, March 11th

After March 11th, any remaining Gala tickets will be priced at $89. Please help us spread the word by encouraging your friends and fellow class parents to buy their tickets before the early bird deadline this Friday! 

All funds raised at the Mad as a Hatter Gala will directly benefit our kids through special programs provided by the Canyon Heights PAC. If you know of parents that are unable to attend the Gala, please consider asking them to support this great cause by sponsoring or donating an auction item. Donation forms are available in the school office or by contacting Serena Dulay at serena.dulay@gmail.com and sponsorships can be purchased online at Munchalunch.com

Please note: This is a "paperless" event; ticket holders will NOT receive a paper ticket. We will be checking in attendees at the event using a report from our Munchalunch system. If you have purchased tickets offline or in person, your ticket has been entered into Munchalunch. If you have any questions about your ticket, please contact canyonhotlunch@gmail.com

Cultural Display in the school entrance to share Persian New Year, Norooz  
With the Persian year coming to an end and another new year approaching (starting the first day of spring), Iranians are getting their Haft seen tables ready with the seven articles that symbolize the triumph of good over evil. The family gathers around the table at the moment of transition into the new year.  Please stop by and see the display in the main entrance this week at the school!

and lastly, a Community Recreation reminder for Spring Break!
