Mount Jordan Wins Chess Tournament


Mount Jordan Middle School has been crowned champion of the inaugural Canyons Middle School Intramurals Chess Tournament.

The Mountaineers edged competitors from seven other middle schools in the districtwide tournament, the latest addition to the Canyons Middle School Intramurals Program. Midvale Middle School finished in second place, and Butler and Crescent View middle schools tied for third place. The winners received trophies capped with chess pieces to display in their school trophy cases.

Some 200 Canyons middle school students had been practicing two to three times a week since October to hone their chess skills and prepare for the districtwide competition. Each school was represented by its six top contenders — one for each ability level of play, beginner through advanced. Winners in each of the six levels also received medals. They are, in order from advanced to beginner categories:

Board 1 (Tie): Drew Merrill, Butler; Brennan Castleton, Union; Jon Hales, Crescent View

Board 2: Jesse Johnson, Butler

Board 3 (Tie): Jacob Dixon, Eastmont; Jerome Angeles, Midvale; Jacob Kilby, Indian Hills

Board 4: Aaron Fairbourn, Crescent View

Board 5 (Tie): Anthony Thaxton, Eastmont; and Jarvis Parry, Mount Jordan

Board 6: Cletis Peterson, Midvale

The Intramurals Program kicked off last year to give kids competitive athletic and academic events in which everyone is welcome to participate. Last year, students participated in Cross Country, 3-on-3 Basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee.

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!
