Where Families Matter: Canyons Family Center Announces Fall Lineup of Parenting Classes, Student Support Groups

Parenting is hard. Period. No matter the age of your child, or how many years of experience you have under your belt, parenting is the biggest job out there — and sometimes it helps to have a friend in your corner.

The Canyons Family Center aims to be just that. Located at Mt. Jordan Middle School, the Center is a free resource for all Canyons District families. Its licensed therapists offer a variety of parenting workshops and student support groups, ranging from classes on how to cope with ADHD, anxiety, and peer pressure to building self-esteem.

“We know parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. We also know that being a parent can sometimes be lonely,” said Canyons Prevention Specialist Kelly Redican. “We envision the Family Center as a place where families come together to discover genuine avenues to assist each other, connect with each other, and learn from each other.”

Registration is open now for the Family Center’s fall lineup of classes. The Center also offers counseling and can refer families to private mental health providers for additional services.

To register for and learn more about the Center’s fall courses visit canyonsdistrict.org.

Questions? Staff are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 801-826-8190.

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!
