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. These activities are available on Ally, our school software.
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.
