Students can attend two events designed to benefit the CISD Education Foundation Friday, Nov. 22. Canyon High will be on assembly bell schedule.

Students can pay $2 to their second period teacher or at the door of the auditorium to attend the new Family Feud game during activity period. Students can also pay $3 to their second or third period teacher for a long lunch. Non-participating students will sit in the lower commons during the game show and then sit in the auditorium until second lunch.

Participating freshmen and sophomores will be allowed to go off campus for lunch with a signed parent permission form. The consent forms will be emailed to students. Hard copies are in the Learning Commons and the front office.

“Lunch will be after third period,” testing coordinator Allison Kleman said. “We’ll dismiss around 11:35 a.m., and kids will have to be back on campus by the time the bell rings for their sixth period class.”

Students who pay the $3 will get an hour and a half for lunch. Students will not attend their fourth or fifth period classes.

“It’s just a great way for us to raise money for a foundation that gives back to our campus,” Kleman said. “We just encourage the kids to participate and take advantage of getting to go sit down and eat lunch and not have to rush.”
