David Skorut is the Ben Affleck of Canyons School District.

Like the director of “Argo,” which took the night’s big award at the recent 85th annual Academy Awards, Hillcrest’s Skorut was the big winner at the 4th annual Canyons District Film Festival, held Thursday, April 11, 2013 at Eastmont Middle School.

Skorut took home trophies in the secondary PSA and Feature Film categories, and won the festival’s first-ever poster contest. His design will be used to promote the 2014 CSD Film Festival throughout the next school year.

The winning entries are available for viewing on the CSD Education Technology Web site. 

The festival celebrated the best in films that were written, directed, acted and produced by students and teachers in the Canyons School District.

Seventy-nine entries from 21 schools across the District entered films in eight categories: Public Service Announcement, Animation, Newscast, Documentary, Advertisement, Feature Film, Teacher Film, and Poster Contest. Entries were first submitted at the school level. Each school, with the help of its Education Technology Specialist, selected its top entries to go on to District-level competition.

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!
