Welcome Back to School 2014

Canyons District schools “rolled out the red carpet” for students on the first day of school Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 — in one case, with a hand from the Utah Jazz Bear.

Midvale Middle School students were greeted by thumping music, doughnuts, and confetti sprayed by the high-energy NBA mascot when they came to school. Students received autographs, high fives, and even a few dances with The Bear, who even paid a few visits to parent motorists at drop-off.

Meanwhile, students in elementary schools districtwide walked the red carpet, lined by “paparazzi” parents and teachers cheering for their up-and-coming college-ready stars. At Ridgecrest, students high-fived the school’s Tiger mascot. At Willow Canyon, they cheered and shook pompons, and at East Sandy, they sported college-gear and walked with banners they made of some of their favorite universities.

Since its inaugural 2009-2010 academic year, Canyons schools have rolled out the red carpets to welcome students back to school. The events serve to provide a warm welcome for students and the community while underscoring the importance of school: It’s a child’s ticket to success and college- and career-readiness.

Canyons District enrolls nearly 34,000 students in 46 schools.

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!
