Parent Meetings and Student Education Plans

Education 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. Here is the Monthly Parent Touchpoints Schedule we will follow for these discussions.

Monthly Parent Touchpoints

At the beginning of the school year, you will create an individualized Student Education Plan (SEP) with your Education Specialist. Your student’s SEP will outline the curriculum your student will be using and your goals for the school year.

Common Dress

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 available for purchase.  Our fun T-shirt is worn by our students at all our school-sponsored activities such as Epic, Discovery, and field trips.  Ask your Educational Specialist for details.

Drop-Off

Morning Meeting: 9:00 am Students will meet in the DE classrooms upstairs. Please have students there on-time (which is between 8:45 – 9:00 am). Morning meeting is when your child’s Educational Specialist celebrates student accomplishments and recognizes birthdays. The ES will also build our culture of shared experiences by recognizing positive behavior and helping students take personal accountability for their own actions. We appreciate you bringing your student on time so they can be part of our awesome Canyon Grove DE team-building activities.

Please do not drop off your students earlier than 8:45.

Recess

Recess: 12:00-12:20 pm Recess may be held OUTDOORS, so please send your child dressed appropriately for the weather. Students play first and then eat so they do not rush through eating to get to the playground.

Lunch

Lunch:  12:20-12:40 pm Lunch is a favorite time of the day for most students.  Students will need to bring lunch from home. Please send your child with a lunch from home that can be eaten within the given time frame. Please let them know that they will be eating what you send with them in their OWN lunch.  🙂  There is no bartering lunch items.

Pick-Up

3:15-3:25 Curbside pick-up.  It is important for parents to call if they are going to be more than 10 minutes late.  

Please ONLY be late if there is a true emergency.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Pick-up Authorization: If someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up, please notify the ES before pick-up.  Remind them to bring ID so we can verify who they are.
  • Note for Walking: If the student lives near the school and will be walking home, a note with parental permission must be on file in the office.
  • Attendance: If your student misses an Epic day please email your Educational Specialist to excuse absences.

Discovery Day:

12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

School T-shirts can be purchased at the front office and are required for all students and volunteers attending Discovery Day activities.

Signups for Discovery Day are posted here prior to each session.

When our Discovery Days are held at Canyon Grove Academy drop off is at 11:50 am and pick up is at 2:30 pm at the school.

When students are being bused from Pleasant Grove to an offsite location drop off  at 11:20 am and pick- up will be at 3:00 pm 

If you miss the bus you are responsible for your student’s transportation. DO NOT stop the bus if it is pulling out and you are late. If the bus is moving you have missed it and need to transport your students to the location. If they miss the bus one direction they can still ride the bus back.   More info
