You’re Invited to Alta High’s Diversity Initiative Dinner

Alta business students are seeking to changing the world around them – one conversation at a time.

Led by student adviser Kim Batey, students in Alta’s FBLA and DECA have been proactive about addressing local and global social change by hosting weekly before-school breakfast meetings as part of a larger Diversity Awareness Initiative.

The roundtable meetings, which were led by the students, touched on race relations, stereotypes, ethnicity, gender and bullying. The format was simple: over breakfast in a room where it was safe to express opinions, students discussed these sensitive topics and how the awareness of such issues could lead to a more inclusive school – and help the students as they make their way into college and, eventually, the global marketplace.

Teachers said that the conversations were raw, honest, intense and enlightening. The discussions also prompted some 40 students who don’t ordinarily run in the same circles to sit down across from each other and talk about personal and mature issues.

The final session, which was Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, focused on the topic of acceptance.

Alta’s Diversity Initiative culminates in a 6-9 p.m. Diversity Dinner on Friday, Jan. 10.  The guests will share with tablemates their own backgrounds and thoughts about the topics shared by the students in the diversity-discussion breakfasts.

The event will be at the Lone Peak Indoor Pavilion, 10140 S. 700 East.  The cost is $300 per table or $40 per plate.

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!
