Volunteers Support CSD Schools For United Way Day of Caring

In recognition of the heroes of Sept. 11, 2001 – both those who gave their lives and those who survived – a group of everyday heroes in our own community reached out to help several Canyons District schools as part of the United Way’s Day of Caring and September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Employees from Savage, a global company based in Midvale, volunteered their time throughout the school day Thursday at Midvale, Copperview and Sandy elementary schools. They filled deflated sports balls, disinfected door handles, cleaned window sills, read stories to students and played four-square on the playground, among other things. There were no jobs too big or small for the willing volunteers, who accounted for about three-fourths of Savage’s local staff.

At Midvale Elementary alone, 24 volunteers re-stocked 35 outdated emergency kits with flashlights, toilet paper, treats, snacks and medical supplies. Savage provided all of the items for the kits, in addition to the manpower.

“We try to give back to the community at Savage,” said Matt Bollard, a software developer who has volunteered during the United Way’s Day of Caring for eight years.

Savage, a leader in supply-chain management solutions, was announced on Tuesday, Sept. 9, as Canyons’ 2014 Apex Award winner for Business Partner of the Year. Employees of the company have volunteered during the United Way’s Day of Caring at Midvale Elementary for the last three years.

Having volunteers in school has a big impact on students, says Jessica Vidal, assistant principal at Midvale Elementary.

“They love having visitors in the building,” Vidal said. “We thrive on community partnerships. Building and maintaining these partnerships helps not just the children, but the teachers as well. They really feel supported.”

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!
