Canyons Accepting Dual Immersion Applications at 7 Elementaries

Canyons School District is accepting applications for first-graders to enter seven Dual-Immersion programs, three of which will debut in the District this coming fall.

Dual-Immersion, offered in partnership with the State Office of Education, offers students instruction in a target language, including in the subjects of math, science and social studies, for at least 50 percent of the school day. Dual-Immersion programs help students develop the ability to read, write, speak and listen in another language from fully proficient teachers. They also will develop a world cultural understanding and be prepared academically, linguistically and socially for the challenges and needs of our increasingly global society.

Dual-Immersion programs are offered at the following elementary schools. The asterisk denotes that a new program will begin in fall 2010:

Spanish-English:  Silver Mesa*, Alta View
Mandarin Chinese-English: 
Ridgecrest*, Draper, Lone Peak
French-English: 
Butler*, Oak Hollow

Applications are available by clicking here.  The application deadline is Wednesday, March 31, 2010.

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!
