Building Together Momentum

9351 S. Mountaineer Lane, Sandy
Groundbreaking: Sept. 18, 2013
Opening Celebration: Aug. 11, 2015

Mount Jordan Middle was almost 60 years old when then-principal Dr. Molly Hart climbed into a bulldozer and took the first ceremonial swing at the school’s old brick walls. She grinned as a small cloud of dust rose from where her office used to be and she thought of the experience her students would have returning in two years to a brand-new, state-of-the-art building filled with possibilities and opportunity. The project to rebuild the school, originally built in 1954, was made possible by a $250 million bond approved by voters in 2010. The new, award-winning Mount Jordan features clean, bright spaces filled with natural light, an elevated running track, fitness rooms, a commons area, 180-seat lecture hall, updated library, and collaborative layout for classrooms.

A Bit of History
Mount Jordan opened as a junior high school in the fall of 1954 surrounded by farm fields and cow pastures in the shadow of Mount Jordan Peak, for which it is named. To preserve the school’s rich history, and its more than six decades of service to the Sandy community, school librarian Michael Goodman created, the Mount Jordan Memory Project: An online collection of photos, keepsakes and historic anecdotes. “I hope it’ll be a site that former students and faculty can go to and relive their memories, [and say] ‘I remember that person,'” Goodman told The Salt Lake Tribune. “Maybe they’ll do some memoir-writing of their own.”[Office1]

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!
