This week our kindergarten classes have been learning about all about rocks.  On Tuesday, we spent some time being geologists and completing some cool experiments.   The kids had fun seeing if rocks float, weighing them on a scale, seeing if they were magnetic, and looking at them with a magnifying glass.   They had fun synergizing together and working as a team!!

Mrs. Sumsion's sixth grade class recently joined The Kind Club, which is part of a worldwide organization promoting kindness. Each student received a checklist of kind acts to do for peers, adults, and in the classroom or at recess. It was amazing to see how excited the kids were to start checking off these acts of kindness!

Every year, the teachers at Cherry Creek have the opportunity to nominate one of their fellow faculty members to receive the Crystal Apple Award. This award is given to a teacher who has made a positive difference in the lives of students and to the entire school community. This year, Mr. Cornwall was honored to receive this special award. Some of his colleagues had the opportunity to share their appreciation for Mr. Cornwall's dedication to effective teaching methods and his natural way of inspiring both students and teachers.

There's nothing we love to do more at Cherry Creek than to celebrate our students' success! Yesterday, we had another victory lap around the school to cheer on those students who received a Leader of the Month or Principal's Top Croc award. During the victory assembly following, Mr. Duncan talked to the kids about how important it is to read every day. Reading is such a strong indicator of school performance and life-long success. Mr. Duncan told the students about his commitment to read a book for thirty minutes daily this next month.
