At the beginning of the school year, The Springville Walmart Store had a contest with their employees to determine their favorite school in Springville. Cherry Creek Elementary won! All the employees of the school had their names put into a drawing and those who won were given a $100.00 gift card to use in the store. Winners of the drawing were Susan Deardeuff, Macall Johnson, Kristie Suguturaga, Chelsie Bergera, Jodi Schouten, Lori Blackburn, Marjean Strong, and Debbie South. Teachers used the money to buy supplies for their class. Rewards, paper products, and other school supplies that were needed in their room. Thank you Walmart for making our school year better.
Cherry Creek Elementary School is proud to announce Nitta Hungmany, the winner of the Mayor's Recognition Award
Nitta is in Mrs. Chalyce Peck's 6th grade class.
Nitta is a well-mannered, bright student who is always willing to learn and increase her capacity to learn. She is always the first one to ask questions in her group if she doesn’t get it and is eager to understand the concept even though she may not understand it right away. I have heard from other teachers that work with her, that she is always thinking of different ways that she can better her understanding of a concept. She knows what may be her weak spots and wants to strengthen them.
Nitta is a good friend to others and is a peace maker. She is willing to work in groups and is a team player. She understands what it takes to be a better person and is always striving to reach those goals. She knows how to work hard and to work at a job until it is finished. Because of this she is a good example to others and is willing to help others reach their full potential.
Cherry Creek's annual Moms and Muffins was held on May 18. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and big sisters were invited to come and share a muffin and juice with the students before school and read their favorite stories to them. Students like having mom's come and read before they start the day of school work. Over 500 students and parents participated in this even.
Cherry Creek's PTA held their first Walk-a-Thon. Parents, grandparents, brother and sisters and neighbors sponsored the students at the school with donation to be paid according to the number of miles the students walked. Miles ranged from one mile to ten miles. The weather cooperated and the students had a great time walking and visiting with their friends and classmates. Even teachers participated in the walk. After the walk, students went and collected their donations from their sponsors. $4,653.00 was raised by the students. Money will be used for field trips, assemblies and other activites that the PTA sponsors at the school.
