Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program

UPDATE – THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to preempt the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents.

But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program  for fifth-grade students and their parents.

Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes.

The aim of the program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Parents are advised to leave younger siblings at home.

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!
