Education Specialist

My name is Emily Cox, and I am thrilled to begin working with you! I achieved my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education, and my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Western Governors University. I have previously taught 2 years of 4th grade and 1 year of 1st grade at Ascent Academy. I have a passion for individualized learning, and creating a safe and happy environment for students to learn in. In my spare time, I love to quilt, crochet, dance, sing, play the piano, garden, and spend time with the people I love. I have been married to my husband Tyler for 5 years. We have a one year old son named Declan, and are expecting our second son in the end of September! We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a turtle! I look forward to learn more about you!

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.  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 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.

Drop-off at the sidewalk on the east side of the building.  To do so, please drive straightforward when you enter the parking lot and follow the lanes around the curve to the front of the building.  Students should exit curbside only. Say your piece (or peace!) to them before you arrive so that you are not holding up the drop-off line with parental advice or with drawn-out farewells.

 

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

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

There is no pick up between 2:45 – 3:00 because we are getting everyone ready to leave.  Thank you for your help with this.

Pick up: 3:00 pm

Please be there to pick up your child at 3:00. Most dance classes begin shortly after our Epic Day ends. It is important that we are all out of there on time. If there is an emergency and you will be late, please contact the ES.

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 clean-up begins.  Make sure they bring ID.
  • Attendance: If your student misses an Epic Day, please email your Educational Specialist to excuse their absence.
