Dear Canyon Crest Family,

As the principal at Canyon Crest Elementary School, I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our sc​hool community alongside an incredible team of teachers, staff members, students, and parents.  It is through our combined efforts of integrating 21st century  skills that we will successfully equip our students to become college ready and ulti​mately globally competitive.  We have been diligently working towards better preparing students for college, career and life by embedding critical 21st century competencies into the learning environment for the last few years and continue to pilot new strategies and initiatives that align with these goals.​  Incorporating the 4C's:  critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity is integral to our practice and ultimately our success.

During the 2018-2019 school year, K-5 grade students will continue to focus on effective writing strategies with the use of Thinking Maps and the integration of the program Write from the Beginning. Our whole-school approach helps students internalize the skills and strategies used by effective writers, so they can apply them in academic discourse wherever their paths take them.   Strengthening writing skills will equip students with the essential skills they will need for college and career success.

We will continue to build on strenghthening our growth mindset skills as we ​​respond to challenges with perserverance and the understanding that we do not give up.  Ask your student about our moonshot:  'All staff and students will model an growth mindset.  We will persevere when faced with challenges through grit and creative problem solving.'

I look forward to sharing more with you about how these strategies will build your student’s critical thinking skills and ability to succeed. Please attend one of the upcoming parent workshops to learn how you can further support your student at home using the same strategies.

I eagerly anticipate the participation of family members in supporting our students. Be assured that my door is always open and I welcome your ideas.  Your are invited to stop by my office to say hello and share your ideas about how Canyon Crest Elementary can best serve your child.

I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful community. I look forward to a incredible 2018-2019 school year!


Kelly Wilbert, Ed.D.
