Mascots Help Sunrise Celebrate ‘College’ Week

The Parent-Teacher Association at Sunrise Elementary last week organized the school’s first ever “I’m Going To College Week,” which featured activities encouraging students to prepare for college or trade school educations.

Games and activities focusing on study habits and college preparations were planned for each day of the special week. Each class became its own university and created a name, banner, mascot, and colors that they took to an assembly on Friday, April 30. Students also were shown authentic university class catalogues so they could create a “dream schedule” of classes that sounded interesting.

An essay contest on the theme “Why College Will Be A Good Thing For Me” yielded winners from every grade level. 

A trade school fair was held Thursday, April 29, with exhibits and demonstrations from local trade schools, showcasing cosmetology, massage, cooking, automotive jobs and robotics.

An assembly on Friday, April 30 featured mascots from the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, Weber State University, Southern Utah University, and College of Eastern Utah gave students “mascot training” and engaged in friendly intercollegiate competition.

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!
