Smiles Abound At Canyons’ First Special Education Sports Day

Hundreds of smiling, laughing and cheering Canyons School District students participated Friday, May 14, in the District’s first-ever Sports Day for children in special education programs. The event, held at Alta High School, was for all elementary-age students whose Individualized Education Programs call for special education services.

Participants ranged from students in wheelchairs to those with mild cases of autism. After a Parade of Athletes, students participated in four separate events: kick ball, target throwing, dancing and an obstacle course.The four events were all based on IEP-goal skills and were designed to give the students the opportunity to show the skills they have learned, including social skills.

All student athletes received a participation ribbon for each event.

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!
