Welcome and welcome back to Canyon View Elementary School, where we are learner centered, future ready and  kindness always matters!  I am honored to continue to serve you and our learners for another amazing and unique year. 


Our team has spent time over the summer preparing to launch our CVES Virtual Learning Experience. Our collective vision for our learners is every child, every day, whatever it takes!  We continue to inspire our learners to be dreamers, creators, and doers.


Canyon View Elementary is so fortunate because we have the most dedicated team—staff  members, teachers, instructional assistants, custodians, Extended Student Services (ESS) team, amazing office team, each and every learner, and, of course, YOU!  It takes a village to raise and guide our learners to be kind, responsible, respectful, and creative. Together, we can always achieve more!


Our team is so grateful for the continued support of our CVES family.  Our Foundation and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) make up TEAM Canyon View.  PTO facilitates our wonderful community events and our Foundation champions fundraising and supports our instructional programs.  We will continue to build our community, virtually with fun engaging events!


I strongly encourage you to get connected to our school community.  Join our PTO, support our Foundation, follow us on social media and collaborate with us. Most importantly, continue to advocate for your child and their learning.  You are their biggest cheerleader.


I am thrilled to be part of your village, and we will take great care of your children. Thank you for sharing your most precious loved ones with us.  I can’t wait to meet our new learners and virtually see our returning students and families! It is a great time to be a Coyote!


In the best interest of each and every learner,


Jill Halsey

Your Proud Principal


Six Pillars of Character

The Poway Unified School District actively supports the CHARACTER COUNTS! Program and the Six Pillars of Character.

The Six Pillars are the foundation for showing good character from the time a student rides a school bus, to learning in a classroom, eating lunch, and interacting with others. The Six Pillars of Character has become part of the language among students and staff, and students are encouraged and recognized for showing good character. Most schools have banners, murals, and posters displayed on their campuses. Some schools have named their halls after the pillars, such as “Caring Court” and “Responsibility Road”.


The CHARACTER COUNTS! framework is not only visible through displays, but more importantly, it is evident in how students and staff respect each other every day. Showing good character supports a positive school climate and safe, caring learning environment.


Canyon View will improve the moral climate by teaching, advocating, enforcing and modeling the 6 pillars of character including trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship by insuring that in every relationship CHARACTER COUNTS!
