Real Salt Lake, Monarchs Players Help CSD Kick Off School Year

Goal! Canyons School District students scored big this year with a back-to-school kick-off with professional Real Salt Lake and Monarchs soccer players.

With smiles and high five’s, pro athletes Aaron Herrera, Ricky Lopez-Espin, Rhys Williams, Konrad Plewa, and David Diosa brought added cheer to the first day of school as they encouraged students to set new goals and reach for new heights.

“It means so much to the kids to have these role models here,” said Altara Elementary Principal Nicole Svee-Magann who joined Aaron Herrera and a paparazzi of parents, teachers and staff in extending a red-carpet welcome to hundreds of Kittyhawks.
Board of Education members, Superintendent Dr. Jim Briscoe, School Resource Officers and central-office staff also joined in the fun, setting a celebratory tone for the 2018-2019 school year, Canyons District’s 10th, and reinforcing for students that our schools are welcoming safe havens for learning.

“It’s so important that our students connect with school in a way that makes them feel supported, inspired and part of something bigger than themselves,” says Superintendent Briscoe. “School should be a place for courageous exploration, finding friends, and connecting with knowledge and ideas.”

Pom-poms and school mascots were a common sight at schools. All students were given free pencils. The Mount Jordan Mountaineers were announced like royalty as they entered the school’s front doors, and newcomer Alta High Hawks were hailed by student leaders holding welcome signs. At Corner Canyon, Student Body Officers were interviewed by FOX13 for a story to urge teens and parents to drive safe and keep an eye out for buses and pedestrians.

“This is culture-building,” remarked an Alta High parent on Twitter. “Thanks to all who put such thought into my son’s first day of high school. It’s a great day to be a Hawk!”

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!
