Students receive rousing, red carpet welcome

Rise and shine, Canyons District!  The sun had just peaked over the Wasatch Mountains when students, teachers and parents started arriving at CSD schools for the first day of the 2017-2018 school year. 

Ready and waiting to greet them with a rousing red carpet welcome were a full contingent of faculty, staff and volunteers, including Real Monarchs players who dropped by schools to help inspire students to reach for their dreams.

At Midvale Middle, coaches for the professional soccer team gave the morning announcement, encouraging students to make and set goals. At Peruvian Park Elementary, forward Chandler Hoffman signed jerseys while saluting students with high-fives and fist bumps. Every CSD student today received a two-for-one voucher to the Real Monarchs playoff game Friday, Aug. 25 night at Rio Tinto Stadium.

A proud, nine-year tradition, Red Carpet Day helps students feel welcome while underscoring the importance of school as a child’s ticket to the show of life. Celebrating CSD’s college- and career-ready stars of the day is a moment relished each year by Amber Shill, second Vice President of the Canyons Board of Education. “It’s one of my favorite things to do.”

CSD students also awoke to news on Wednesday that the Board of Education had endorsed placing a $283 million, tax-rate-neutral bond on the Nov. 7, 2017 ballot. If approved by voters, the bond would fund 11 major improvement projects in all parts of the District with an emphasis on building safe, supportive learning environments. Click here to view photos

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!
