Book talk: The accident season
Have you ever read a book so mystifying that you get to the end and you're still not quite sure what just happened? That's what you'll get with The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle.
With each chapter, Cara's life seemed to get eerier and eerier. From the start the reader is made aware of the whole family's predisposition for "accidents" during the month of October. For Cara's whole life, bad things seem to happen to her family during this one month, which they refer to as the accident season. Add this on to the disappearance of a girl nobody but Cara and her friends seem to remember existing, and culminating the story with a long hidden family secret, this book is one wild ride of mystery.
If you like a truly mystifying read, with a hint of danger, romance, and Irish culture, you should give The Accident Season a try!
Who's ready for week 2?
The second week of school!
By now, you are probably diving head first into all the exciting content your teachers have for you to learn this year. Did you know that there is a whole section of this website dedicated to resources for you to use in each of your classes? The "Departments" page is organized by subject so if you need science help, you can go to the "Science" page and find the link that is most likely to help you out. I am always looking for new resources to add to these pages so they can be the most helpful to you throughout the school year. Let me know if you think of something I've missed!
I've enjoyed meeting you all and I'm looking forward to another great week at Canyon! We have quite a few 9th grade classes coming in for orientation this week so our hours will be a little more limited than usual.

Monday: Closed during second brunch ONLY
