Sandy, Midvalley Receive ‘Big’ Visit As Part Of Read Today Program

More than 1,000 students chanted “We love Clifford!” as the Big Red Dog landed in KSL-TV Chopper 5 at both Sandy and Midvalley elementary schools on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. The beloved book character visited the Canyons District schools as part of the Read Today program.
“This is all about the love of reading and creating a new world for yourself every time you open a new book,” Will Iverson, a representative with Scholastic, said to the enthusiastic kids. “We love to see how excited you are about reading and about books.”
Clifford was joined by KSL-TV anchor Nadine Wimmer, representatives from Big O Tires, who donated $1,000 in books to each school, executives from Scholastic, volunteers from AmeriCorps and literacy tutors from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Involvement in the Read Today program is part of the District’s mission to boost reading scores and encourage children to develop a lifelong love of books. Sandy Elementary principal Sandra Dahl-Houlihan said she’s noticed her student’s reading levels have increased – especially amongst the sixth graders – since implementing the program.

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!
