Canyons Employees Deliver at Back-to-School Donation Drive

Educators work their hearts out every day to ensure children excel academically. But many of their students start the school year without the basic supplies they need to succeed.

So, when the Canyons Education Foundation announced it was holding a donation drive to fill backpacks for homeless students  – teachers delivered. Hundreds of educators, administrators and support staff participated in Canyons District’s inaugural back-to-school “Gathering for Good” on Friday where they enjoyed a BBQ lunch and then lined up to help stuff backpacks. Sandy-based Sodaholics sold cold drinks, gifting half of all proceeds to the foundation. By midday, dozens of boxes of supplies and nearly 400 fully stocked backpacks had been loaded into a truck bound for students in transition or residing at the Road Home homeless shelter in Midvale.

Located within Canyons School District’s (CSD) boundaries is Utah’s largest family shelter where demand has grown 300 percent in five years, according to CSD’s Homeless Liaison Connie Crosby. Her caseload, as of July, exceeded 350 school children.

“The need is high, but thankfully, we have a very generous community,” she said. “I couldn’t do my job without the community behind me. I’m so very appreciative.”

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!
