Playground News

Canyon Elementary now has a privacy fence located around our upper playground area. This provides security for our students from onlookers and weather conditions such as wind and snow. School safety conferences recommend a privacy fence to help provide a safe environment for our students. Please do not be alarmed by the privacy fence. Thank you for your continued support of our endeavors in making our district safe for all students.

WY-TOPP - What is it?

WY-TOPP stands for Wyoming’s Test of Proficiency and Progress. WY-TOPP will be a customized summative and interim assessment system built for Wyoming. WY-TOPP will assess students on Wyoming Content and Performance Standards and will adjust according to each student’s ability level. Questions selected depend on the students’ performance on previous questions. Higher performance is followed by more difficult questions, and lower performance is followed by less difficult questions. This produces more accurate results of student performance. We will administer WY-TOPP online with a computer adaptive assessment, and will include more than just the end-of-year summative assessment. 

We encourage parents to familiarize themselves and their students with this new test. Parents can visit Wyoming Assessment Portal to experience a training test. To learn more about the new assessments, visit Wyoming Department of Education's website.
