INNOVATIONS 

Innovation is a spark of insight. Students learn to create using their voices, their bodies, and hands-on materials in small class settings.

Fall 2020

We are currently running our fall session of Innovations. If you would like to be on the waiting list for this current session please sign up here. You will be contacted when a space is available. See class descriptions below.

Winter and Spring 2021

There will be two sessions of Innovations in 2021. Winter session will run January 4- March 12. Spring session will run March 22- May 14.

Registration links and class details for these sessions will be posted here when they open. Registration will open on the following dates. Registration will close when classes are full or the deadline, whichever comes first. We have to keep class sizes small so register early. Please only sign up if you are committed to fully participate.

Here are some guidelines to help things run smoothly:

  • There are three classes. Students sign up for all classes so the teacher can escort them from one to the next.

  • Please have each student bring a water bottle with their name on it.

  • Please wear a mask.

  • Because of COVID, we cannot share supplies. If you have them, please send the following for Arts & Crafts: 2 Regular pencils, student scissors, glue stick, crayons, & colored pencils.

  • All students wear Canyon Grove t-shirt. They are available for purchase at the front desk.

  • There is no food or snack time, so please FEED THEM well before they come.

  • Parents are in charge of timely transportation and students may not be left at the school.

  • Students will be expected to participate and not disrupt others from enjoying their experience. Students who cannot abide by this will not be able to participate.

  • Please remind students to come to meet you at the curb when their classes end. We will have someone monitoring the curb for safety, but we won’t be able to go find a child who might have finished class and is standing around talking with a friend. 🙂

This opportunity is designed to stretch our students by providing new ideas and creative thoughts using project-based learning. Our Pleasant Grove campus is full of opportunities that provide the innovative spark that we want to share with our students. We are starting with experiences on our farm, the Space Center, Arts & Crafts MakerSpace, and music classes.

Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build, and invent as they deeply engage in creating. Our Arts & Crafts Makerspace provides instruction on the creative process and then adds in creation time and a plethora of materials for students to design their own projects.

A Space Center is the combination of improv theater and a live­‐action, team­‐based simulation. Students of all ages can have an adventure in a futuristic setting, guided by our Flight Director who leads the crew. Students also get to practice important skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, collaboration, and communication. Each flight has its own unique series of challenges and discoveries, similar to an episode of television. However, at our Reality’s Edge Space Center, you and your fellow students are the actors and protagonists of these stories!   realitysedge.com

Music students learn about creating, performing, and listening to music. This course will provide students with basic vocal instruction and teach them about the elements and language of music, including rhythm, melody, harmony, form, and pitch. Music is a group of sounds that people have arranged in a pleasing or meaningful way. All cultures of the world make some form of music. Students will explore the joy of music and experience how it can enrich our lives.

Farm activities on our Canyon Grove property help students connect to gardening and animals in a real, hands-on way.  What are farms and how do they impact our daily lives?  We help kids understand where the food they eat is grown, how important farmers are to their daily lives, and give students a chance to get involved in the process.
