Gold Medal School of the Month: East Midvale

The Utah Department of Health has named East Midvale Elementary the December 2011 Gold Medal School of the Month.estmidvl

East Midvale jumped into its work to become a Gold Medal School back in 2008, and hasn’t stopped moving since. Determined to combat childhood obesity by engaging students in physical fitness, health and nutrition education, East Midvale became one of the few schools in Utah to complete the Bronze, Silver and Gold medal criteria in its first year. This year, East Midvale students plan to walk 20,000 miles — or, more creatively, to Disneyland and back 15 times. The school also is working to achieve Platinum Focus in Oral Health, and works with the group, “Sealants for Smiles” to offer sealants to all second- and sixth-grade students.

For its efforts, East Midvale will be profiled throughout the month of December on the Utah Department of Health’s Web site.

Park Lane Elementary has won the 2010-2011 President’s Challenge State Championship, presented by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition and the President’s Challenge program. To secure this honor, Park Lane posted Utah’s highest percentage of students achieving Presidential Physical Fitness Awards. Those awards go to students who perform in the 85th percentile on five fitness categories. This year’s win marks Park Lane’s 15th state championship — 12 of which were consecutive honors. The Board of Education is proud to honor Park Lane students, teachers, and Principal Karen Medlin for emphasizing fitness for lifelong health. The Board also honors the parent volunteers who help keep the Presidential Physical Fitness Challenge ingrained in school tradition.

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!
