CSD Rolls out the Red Carpet for its Student Stars

It’s the first day school, and Butler Elementary teacher Nancy Bauman has good news for her fifth grade classroom. Because they have to wait longest for lunch, they’re given a special snack at recess. “But don’t lose track of your trash, and leave it on the playground,” Bauman warns, “or you’ll lose the sneak-a-snack privilege.”

Classrooms across Utah came to life on Wednesday as the 2016-2017 school year got underway, and a good portion of the day was spent rehearsing the ground rules. What do you do if you need to use the bathroom or sharpen your pencil? When is recess? What’s for lunch? How do we walk in the hallway–quietly, with purpose, and without signaling to friends who are studiously working in nearby classrooms, says Butler’s Jane Hart to her first-graders.

It takes discipline and constancy, but setting the right tone now makes for an academically successful rest of the year. Integral to setting the right tone in Canyons District is the unique tradition of–literally–rolling out the red carpet for new and returning students. Parents, grandparents, teachers and community partners turned out in droves this year to cheer students–the true “stars” of the day–as they posed for photos and gave high five’s to their teachers. The event conveys a warm welcome while underscoring the importance of school as a child’s ticket to success in college and careers.

“You’re off to great places. Today is your first day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!” – Dr. Seuss

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!
