Third Hillcrest Student Aces ACT

joseph morrellMichelle SimmonsPeter JohnstonIt’s a big deal for a school to boast one ACT ace. But three in a single school year? That’s what’s happening at Hillcrest High School. There, three students have earned perfect scores on the ACT in the 2013-2014 school year.

In January 2014, Junior Joseph Morrell learned he had earned a perfect 36 composite score on the college entrance test. Months prior, senior Michelle Simmons learned she had aced the test. And in the early fall, the same good news came to first-time test-taker and junior Peter Johnston, whose older brother, Micah, last school year also earned a perfect 36 on the college entrance test.

The ACT is scored on a scale of 1-36. A composite score is the average of all scores in Reading, English, Mathematics, and Science subject tests. Roughly one-tenth of one percent of the some 1.8 million ACT test-takers nationwide receive a perfect score.

All Canyons School District 11th-graders will take the ACT as part of a statewide administration on March 4.

This is the fourth year that all Canyons high school juniors have taken the ACT as part of the Canyons Academic Plan. Since the 2010-2011 school year, Canyons also has provided the ACT EXPLORE exam to all eighth-graders and the ACT PLAN exam to all 10th-graders. The ACT suite is intended to provide parents and teachers with regular feedback about student progress toward college- and career-readiness.

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!
