Hillcrest High Rebuild

The Board of Education voted to hire Westland Construction to rebuild Hillcrest High on the current 38-acre campus. The Board also opted to retain the current architectural firm, FFKR, to consult on improvements to the planned auditorium at the home of the Huskies, which will be rebuilt with proceeds from the $283 million voter-approved bond. Preliminary design work began in September 2017 on a contingent basis before passage of the bond, and construction work on the three-year project started in earnest in summer 2018. The construction contract for $113.8 million – $82.7 million plus the $31.1 million approved last spring – has been impacted by the increasing prices of steel, glass, tile, sheetrock, the low unemployment rate, and competition for contractors. 

Patron Comment

Resident Steve Van Maren remarked on the unsuccessful Nonbinding Question No. 1, which would have increased the gas tax to provide more funding for education and local roads, and noted President Sherril H. Taylor’s retirement from the Canyons Board of Education. 

Consent Agenda

The Board of Education approved the Consent Agenda, including the minutes from the Canyons Board of Education meeting on Dec. 4, 2018; approval of hire and termination reports; approval of November financial reports; and update definition for at-risk students.

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!
