CSD Kicks Off American Indian Heritage Month With Film, Scholarship News

Canyons District joins the country in celebrating November as National American Indian Heritage Month, a time set aside each year to honor and recognize the impact American Indian culture has had on our nation and world.

“Today, Native Americans are leaders in every aspect of our society – from the classroom, to the boardroom, to the battlefield,” President Barack Obama said in a proclamation issued Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012. “This month, we celebrate and honor the many ways American Indians and Alaska Natives have enriched our Nation, and we renew our commitment to respecting each tribe’s identity while ensuring equal opportunity to pursue the American dream.”

To kick off the month of events and educational activities, CSD’s Office of Student Advocacy and Access is sponsoring the first-ever showing of the movie “Voices of Opportunity,” which was written and directed by Howard Ranier, a Taos Pueblo-Creek Indian who has been a professional photographer for 20 years.

The movie, which features some Canyons District students, is the most recent addition to a series of books and films Rainer has done to address issues facing the American Indian community. The free event will be Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, from 6-9 p.m. in the Professional Development Center of the Canyons Support Services Center, 9361 S. 300 East, Sandy. The public is invited.

The Office of Student Advocacy and Access also will make an announcement about a new scholarship opportunity for qualifying students.

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!
