Gathering for Good: CSD Employees Raise Money, Spread Cheer

“Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.” – The Polar Express

The spirit of the holiday season isn’t something that can be touched, seen or even easily described. And yet it was fully apparent at Canyons District’s 8th annual Gathering for Good employee luncheon and fund-raiser.

Nearly $7,000 was raised through a silent auction and donation drive benefitting students and families residing at The Road Home homeless shelter in Midvale. The money will be used to provide services and supports that aren’t covered by federal funding, said CSD’s Homeless Liaison Connie Crosby.

Located within Canyons District’s boundaries, the shelter is at capacity, and demand is growing as the numbers of homeless individuals and families rise – Utah reported a double-digit increase in homelessness in 2016. Within Canyons District alone there are nearly 1,300 students who, according to federal standards, lack a fixed, regular or adequate residence.

“The need is high, but thankfully we have a very generous community,” Crosby said. Indeed, it took a small army to organize the event, and the support of the entire Canyons District community. Dozens of local businesses, community partners and individuals donated items for the silent auction. Jordan Valley students performed excerpts from “The Polar Express,” and the Nutrition Services Department spent hours planning, preparing, transporting and serving a hot, homemade meal for everyone to enjoy. They were given a big hand by the custodial, purchasing and warehouse crews. And who could forget the surprise visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus?

Thanks to everyone for their generous contributions. We hope you have a joyful and restful winter break, and a prosperous New Year.

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!
