Does your camera not have a sleep mode? What I'd do is power up the camera before class, and let it go to sleep (maybe have it as a short wake time of 1 minute for maximum battery life)...and then when I need to take a picture I'd wake the camera up, take the picture, and let it go back to sleep...no noise (provided I had pre-zoomed).

I have to admit I'm not familiar with that Canon, this is the way Olympus cameras work...the lens stays extended in sleep mode.
