The Thrive Time curriculum was created by employees of Canyons School District to develop critical competencies that support students to be successful in school and life and to meet the requirements of Utah State Board of Education Rules (School Safety R277-609-4 and Prevention and Intervention R277-400-08).
The curriculum is currently in draft form while it is being tested in Canyons Schools this spring to allow our curriculum development team to continue refining lessons. A final draft of Thrive Time will be proposed to Canyons Board of Education in April of 2023 for implementation in the fall of 2023.
Thrive Time is organized into 6 units based on critical competencies. Each unit has a series of weekly lessons that target specific, developmental skills associated with each competency and their application in the physical and digital world. Lessons have been designed with intention to provide a routine and structure for explicitly teaching skills and building a responsive classroom community.
Lessons can be viewed by grade level below. All stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback about the curriculum utilizing the link or QR code provided in each lesson.
*- Lessons in these grades require access to videos in the Wonders ELA platform. For more information on accessing these videos, click here.
If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added: “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
