Epic Day Instructor – Cedar

Hello! My name is Evita Mann. I moved from England in 2016 to be nearer our children and grandchildren.  I was born in Germany and lived there for 20 years, where I qualified as an Early Childhood Educator (qualified to work with children from birth to school age).  In England, I was a fully licensed counselor and had worked 20 years in my private practice and 10 years for a company.  I now volunteer one morning a week for Courage Reins  (improving the quality of life for people with disabilities through therapeutic riding). I have many interests like doing craft projects (knitting, crocheting, sewing), walking, swimming, yoga and living a healthy lifestyle and playing with my grandchildren.

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.

DRESS CODE

Our students will be having so much fun at Epic Day – and sometimes fun gets energetic! We have found that proper dress and grooming positively affect the behavior of students, so we would like them to look neat and clean. We also want all toes to stay safe! Shoes must cover the entire foot and be worn in and outside the school. No Heelys are permitted. Students should not wear hats inside the school, but they can wear hats outside, so long as we can see their faces.

DROP-OFF

Morning Meeting: 9:00 am Students will be dropped off at the BACK door of the studio.  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.

RECESS

Recess: 12:00-12:20 pm Students play first and then eat so they do not rush through eating to get to their recess activities. Recess is held indoors. They can choose to play quiet games or join the larger-group, interactive fun!

LUNCH

Lunch: 12:20-12:40 pm Lunch is always a favorite time of the day for most students.

Home Lunch: Please send your child with a lunch from home that can be eaten within the given time frame. Also, send only water for them to drink and food that does not need to be reheated. 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

Clean up: 3:00-3:15 pm

We are responsible to clean up the building from 3:00 – 3:15 pm. We all made the mess together, so we all get to clean it up together. Because of this, there is no pick up between 3:00 – 3:15, because we are all helping.   Thank you for your help with this.

Pick up: 3:15 pm

Please be there to pick up your child at 3:15. 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.

Discovery Day: Monday

12:00pm – 2:30pm

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

Signups for Discovery Day are posted prior to each session.

Please note that bus pick up/drop-off sites are not always at the Epic day locations. The bus will leave from each pickup site at 11:20 AM and return around 3:00 PM unless otherwise stated in the sign-up. 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
