College- and Career-Ready — In Middle School

Many students want to go to college, but how to get there?  Mount Jordan Middle School’s Student Success Night will lay out the steps students — particularly first-generation college students and those for whom English is a second language — can take to prepare now for college and careers.

Student Success Night, scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 11, at 6:30 p.m. at Mount Jordan (9360 S. 300 East),
offers parents and students six mini-workshops on basic study skills, college entrance test information, recommended high school courses, help for parents to track student progress via technology, college scholarships and grants, and career-oriented courses offered through the Canyons Technical Education Center.

Each of the workshops will be offered in English and Spanish in hopes of boosting the number of first-generation college students in Canyons District. The public is invited to attend.

“There are many different career paths, yet I’m not sure if students really understand that until a last-ditch effort in high school. Unfortunately, by that time, it’s too late to start preparing,” said Mount Jordan Middle School Principal Misty Suarez. “We want to step up and make sure our students have the tools to become college- and career-ready today.”

The event is part of a week’s worth of career- and college-readiness and awareness activities, including teachers talking about their college experience, students wearing the colors of their desired colleges, “Jeopardy!”-styled college trivia games, and students signing a banner stating where they want to go to college or what they want to be when they grow up. It dovetails with Canyons School District efforts to start preparing students for college and careers as early as kindergarten, and was facilitated by the school’s PTA.

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!
