Reading is More Fun with Friends!

Reading isn’t something you typically think of being a group activity.  But in Canyons, we are building communities of readers with activities like  the annual Book Blitz and Book Blitz Jr. contests — and it’s a community that anyone can join! Book Blitz is a Jeopardy-style competition where student teams are challenged to answer questions about the characters and plots of pre-selected books. I had the pleasure of observing the District-level contest this year and was so impressed by the students’ grasp of the smallest details from the books they read. Keep in mind, many middle school students read all 20 required books and a good number of elementary students read all 12 of their required books. Congratulations to all who took up the reading challenge, and kudos to this year’s winners:

Individual Middle School Winner: Mary Grant, Indian Hills Middle 
Winning Middle School Team: Draper Park Middle’s “Reading by Dusk” team: Anna Stephens, Alina Vannlord, Yulia Brattos, and Maya Halvorsen.
Winning Elementary School Team: The Sunrise Elementary “Word Ninjas:” Liam Sharkey, Thomas McCoy, Rossteen Esfavjani, Marcus Liu, and Van Hewitt.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

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!
