Building Together Momentum

7530 S. 2700 E. Cottonwood Heights
Groundbreaking: Sept. 8, 2011
Opening Celebration: Aug. 14, 2013

With passage of a $250 million bond in 2010, Canyons District wasted no time tackling an ambitious building schedule, starting with, among other projects, a complete rebuild of Butler Middle School, which was originally constructed in 1965. For efficiency, students continued to attend their old school as the new building was raised on another corner of the property. The dim hallways and aging foundation of the old school were replaced with a seismically-safe and state-of-the-art building with: an expanded cafeteria, kitchen and commons area;  gymnasium with two full courts,12 basketball hoops, and an elevated indoor running track; and a fully integrated computer suite and media center with a green screen TV production studio. The school, which has a capacity of 1,300 students, is full of natural light; even the gym has views of the magnificent nearby mountains. A soccer field was installed just east of the school. The energy-efficient building has reduced previous utility energy costs by 14 percent.

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!
