Three-fifths of Class of 2011 Earned College- and Career-Ready Diplomas

The Class of 2011 is making history. This year’s graduating seniors are the first in Canyons School District — and in the State of Utah — to receive a college- and career-ready diploma. And, in this inaugural year, 60 percent of Canyons graduating seniors have earned one.

On June 7, 2011, more than 1,350 Canyons high school seniors will receive an Advanced or Honors Diploma. Approved by the Canyons Board of Education in February 2010, the Advanced and Honors diplomas indicate students possess the skills needed to be successful in college or today’s workforce.

College- and career-readiness is strongly linked to the classes students take. The more rigorous the coursework, the better prepared the student. The Advanced and Honors diplomas require students to complete two years of foreign language, and take more rigorous coursework in science, math and English. Students earning the more challenging Honors Diploma also have achieved Career and College Readiness Benchmark Scores on the ACT college entrance test.

The Canyons Board of Education was pleased to recognize students earning Advanced and Honors diplomas at a May 31 evening reception. The Board and Superintendency congratulate these students for their achievement, and commend them for setting the bar high for generations to come.

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!
