Education Specialist

Hey there! I am Leanna Narteh, and this is my first year working as an Educational Specialist. I have been teaching in various capacities for over 5 years and I am so excited to be working with the parents and students at Canyon Grove Academy. My favorite subjects to teach are math and science, my favorite subjects to learn are language arts and social studies.

My husband and I recently bought a home in West Jordan where we are raising our two daughters. My favorite pastimes include hiking, backpacking, gardening, swimming, reading, and spending time with my family. Something funny about me is that a horse is my preferred mode of transportation. One thing I have on my bucket list is to hike Mount Kilimanjaro. And a fun fact about me is that I love rock climbing and repelling, but I am TERRIFIED of heights.

Hi, I’m Makayla Stratford. I’m from Riverton, Utah. Some of my favorite things include cheering loud at football games, snow cones, interior design, and collecting anything to do with pineapples! I studied Early Childhood Education at UVU. I absolutely love working with kids and being here at Canyon Grove!

PARENT/TEACHER MEETINGS

Families meet with their Educational Specialist to discuss student growth and progress. You will sign up for a monthly recurring time to meet with your ES. Please mark your calendar and be prepared for these meetings. The ES will send you a reminder email with the link to the goal form at the beginning of each month. The goal form needs to show quantifiable goals and must be completed by the 10th of each month. It is an essential communication tool and a requirement for participation in this program. You show that you value our program through having a truly effective conversation with your ES on the academic progress of your student each month. The first monthly goal form will take a little longer to fill out because it requires more details.  

Thank you for scheduling time to document the progress of your student through this form each month and to effectively collaborate as your meet with your Educational Specialist.

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 PLEASE enter the parking lot from 2200 West. Drive past building and turn left in the parking lot. You will drop off at the curb by the front door. If you wish to park, please do so on the side of the building so you can use the sidewalk next to the building. We do not want students/families crossing the parking lot.  You will exit the parking lot onto South Jordan Parkway.

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 based 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: Thursday

12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Discovery Day T-shirts can be purchased at the front office.  They are $5.25 each and 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
