Class of 2026: ‘I Will Be College-Ready’

Canyons kindergarten students capped their first week of the 2013-2014 school year with a special day dedicated to the message that it is never too early to start getting ready for college.

Canyon View Elementary School Principal Brent Shaw and his staff went the extra mile – earned extra credit, if you will – to make Canyons fifth-annual Kindergarten College-Ready Day special for the students. They invited student leaders from Brighton High, including the mascot, Benny the Bengal, to cheer for the students as they received a “diploma” that states, “I will be college-ready!” The 80 kindergartners also signed a poster pledging to become a Brighton High Bengal, wore homemade mortarboard caps, and learned the names of Utah’s college and universities. Canyons Interim Superintendent Dr. Ginger Rhode also read a storybook to the Class of 2026 and talked about the importance of working hard at school.

Canyons District is focused on ensuring all students are college- and career-ready when they graduate high school, and recognizes the importance of expressing this goal early in a child’s education. Kindergarten classes in all 29 Canyons elementary schools host activities on Kindergarten College-Ready Day.

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!
