Literacy Week at Cherry Creek brought many great happenings at our school. On Monday, it was dress like a Dr. Seuss character. Tuesday we had wear a hat day and Wednesday was crazy hair day. We wore blue on Thursday in honor of our guest reader, BYU football player, Spencer Hadley. He read a book to each grade, showed a highlight reel, answered questions, gave high-fives and visited with students at lunch. He signed a few items that were later given away as prizes for students whose names were drawn from the blue and gold croc-claws. Friday ended with students and faculty dressing as a character from a book. We must thank the PTA for so generously using funds raised from our recent book fair to purchase popular, quality books for each student in the school. The PTA book giveaway was a huge success and many students were able to choose their very own book to take home, for some, the first book of their very own. Thank you to all those who donated their time and means to help our Literacy Week be "booktacular".
Friday, March 1, was Dads and Donuts at Cherry Creek. We had a bigger crowd than ever and even had to open up into the Croc Cafe and set up extra tables. We loved seeing so many dads, moms, grandparents and family members reading together, visiting and enjoying donuts and drinks. The student council and teachers served up the refreshments. Thanks for supporting Cherry Creek activities!
Congratulations to our awards assembly recipients! The students pictured received awards based on excellent academic achievement (Scholar Award), remarkable citizenship, or a special award designated by their teachers. We love our Cherry Creek Crocs!
