Monday Tooele

9:00 am – 3:00 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 Epic aides who are paraprofessionals there to support the hand-on-learning environment.  The themed lessons are History-based and include STEM Activities, Science, Social Studies, Art, Math and Literature studies.  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 youngest to oldest with similar-aged peers so that they can gain valuable friendships and social opportunities.  Due to onsite attendance for the 20-21 school year, we only have two groups attending Epic for in-person learning.

Educational Specialist – Ameleah Young

I love everything education! I received my degree in Elementary Education at Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina, and have been an Educational Specialist for 4 years. I have homeschooled my own children for 6 years, and enjoy watching children’s natural curiosity transport them through the learning process. I am excited to be at Canyon Grove and to help families and students find joy in learning.

Hello! My name is Heather 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!

Parent/Teacher Meetings 

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.

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. In addition you will meet regularly with your ES to collaborate on student academic growth and course completion.

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.  Ask your Educational Specialist for details.

Drop-Off

Morning Meeting: 9:00 am Students will meet in the 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 team-building activities.

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

Recess

Recess: 11:20 am-11:40 am Recess is almost always 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

11:40 am-12:00 pm. Lunch is always a favorite time of the day for most students.

Home Lunch: Students will 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

3:00-3:10 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.
