Monday Tooele

349 North 7th Street

9:00 am – 3:15 pm

Welcome to Epic Day!  Your Educational Specialist, along with a Collaborative Teacher, help each student to learn and grow.  They are assisted by the   paraprofessionals (aide) who support the hands-on-learning environment.  The themed lessons are History-based and include STEM Activities, Science, Social Studies, Art, Math and Language Arts.  We focus on engaging, interactive, project-based lessons that promote critical thinking and discussion.  We are teaching Utah State standards with Hands-On Fun.  The students are grouped in classes youngest to oldest, Aspen, Birch, Cedar and Oak, with similar-aged peers so that they can gain valuable friendships and social opportunities.  Our Dive Deeper activities are available for you to extend the learning at home.

Please be on time so your child doesn’t miss our leadership meeting. Leadership is when your child’s Educational Specialist celebrates student accomplishments and recognizes birthdays. We will also delve into the Canyon Grove Guideposts together. Leadership lessons develop the concepts in the guideposts using learning games, songs, biographies, quotations,  discussions, mindfulness exercises, Growth Mindset principles, and movement. Our students explore each of the guideposts and examine how they can apply them in their lives. We wrap up the year with our final guidepost, Anything is Possible, to launch them into a summer of discovery and fun. Please bring students on time (between 8:50 – 9:00 am) so they can participate in leadership activities.

RECESS:  12:15 pm-12:30 pm Students play first and then eat so they do not rush through eating to get to their recess activities. Recess will be held indoors.  They can choose to play quiet games or join the group for interactive fun!

LUNCH:  12:30 pm-12:45 pm  Please send your child with a lunch from home that can be eaten within the given time frame and doesn’t require heating. Please let them know that they will be eating what you send with them in their OWN lunch.    There is no bartering lunch items.

Please send your student to school with a water bottle, home lunch, and backpack each day.

Your student also has the option of attending Innovations and Discovery Days.

I am excited to be at Canyon Grove and to help families and students find joy in learning.

Collaborative Teacher – Tera Morris

I grew up in Southern California but moved to Utah to attend college.  I am a mother of 4 wonderful children! I have one in college, high school, jr. high, and elementary school, which is busy and a lot of fun!  I earned my degree at BYU in education and taught 4th grade for 3 years.  Then I took a long break to raise my kids.  I came back to teaching and taught at Athenian Academy before coming to Canyon Grove.  My hobbies include reading, traveling, and of course spending time with my family.  I love working with children and helping them learn and grow!

ASPEN AIDE – Heather May

Hello! My name is Ms May. Previously I worked at Athenian before coming over to Canyon Grove. I love this school and enjoy the kids so much. I get the privilege of working with the kindergarten through second grade. I enjoy getting to know the children’s different personalities and interest during class time. We always have a lot of fun with our lessons and hands on projects.
I am happily married and have two wonderful children of my own, they are in Junior high and High school this year, WOW how they grow up so quickly!
I am looking forward to this year!


CEDAR AIDE – Tammy Johnson

I am a wife and the mother of 4 amazing kids.  I like to read, organize, hike and stay active.  I love to watch kids use their minds and love encouraging them to use new information to create and build.  I enjoy being in the middle of the fun, mess, and activities.  I look forward to the diverseness that our classroom brings as I teach and we add to it with projects to challenge our minds.


Parent Meetings and Student Education Plans

Educational Specialists serve as a guide and support throughout the education process. Families meet with their Educational Specialist regularly to discuss student as they progress toward their goals.  Please keep in mind that this communication with your ES is essential and a requirement for participation in this program. Please show that you value our program by having a truly effective conversation about the academic progress of your student with your Educational Specialist.

At the beginning of the school year, you will create an individualized Student Education Plan (SEP) with your Educational Specialist. Your student’s SEP will outline the curriculum your student will be using and your goals for the school year. In addition you will meet regularly with your ES to collaborate on student academic growth and course completion.


Canyon Grove Academy has a common dress code. The intent of the common dress code is to minimize distractions in the learning environment, promote a sense of community among students, and increase campus safety and security.   To keep it simple we have a Canyon Grove Academy T-shirt and sweatshirt available for purchase.  This T-shirt and sweatshirt can be worn with jeans in good repair, skirts, leggings, pants, etc. We also want all toes to stay safe! Shoes must cover the entire foot and be worn in and outside the school. Students should not wear hats inside the school, but they can wear hats outside for warmth. CGA T-shirt and sweatshirt are worn by our students at all our school-sponsored activities such as Epic, Discovery, Innovations, field trips, and events.  Call the school for more information.
