Brain Boosters & Altara's New School Schedule

Posted in News

As you may be aware, all elementary schools in the Canyon's School District will be utilizing instructional technicians to teach students in specialty areas. These specialty areas will be called Brain Boosters. At Altara, we will have instructional technicians in the areas of technology, library, and PE.  Our PE technician will utilize the Playworks curriculum so that our students will have continuity in PE and at recess.  We will have a certified teacher teaching art and integrating it with the curriculum.  We are able to have this art teacher due to receiving a Beverly Taylor Sorenson Grant from the state of Utah.  She will be at Altara 40 hours a week every other week as we will be sharing her with Granite Elementary.  The classes taught by these instructional technicians will give teachers some time during the day for planning and professional learning. 

Brain Boosters will be offered Monday through Thursday.  There will be no Brain Boosters on Fridays.  

In a typical week, Brain Boosters will be offered to Grades 1-3 on Mondays and Wednesdays and Grades 4-5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  

Kindergarten students will go to PE only.  AM Kindergarten will go on Tuesdays and PM Kindergarten will go on Wednesdays.

All elementary schools in the district are going back to an early-out Friday schedule.  Fridays will be the only early-out day.  There will be no early out days on short weeks or weeks that end before a holiday such as UEA and Thanksgiving.

Please note our new start and end times.  We will begin school at 8:30 and end school at 3:05.
