This week in preschool the students learned to identify shapes in a fun way! Shapes were scattered all over the floor, and the students had to run around and hit specific shapes with a flyswatter. They loved it!

Sixth Grade Scientists

The sixth graders had their first field trip to the Clark Planetarium in SLC. Students were able to explore many science interactives and space activities. In the Dome Theater students and teachers watched a presentation on seasons, constellations, answered interactive science questions and rode a space roller coaster! It was so real that some students felt they were really moving. The students behaved really well there then walked to a grassy park for lunch. Go to the Cherry Creek Facebook page for more pictures!

Walk to School Day

Students and parents were encouraged to walk to school on Wedneaday, October 9, in conjunction with Health and Safety Week. Students flooded down the sidewalk and bikes and scooters abounded. For students who ride the bus to school or were much too far away to walk safely, a route around the school grounds was provided for them to walk before school. The PTA handed out stickers and suckers for students who participated in Walk to School Day.

Health and Safety Week at Cherry Creek was a great success. We had the Fullmers from Legions Custom Skate Shop teach students about scooter, skateboarding and bike safety, especially wearing helmets!! Travis, another guest, demonstrated incredibly awesome tricks he can do on his scooter, from wheelies to jumping a cone to a 360 as well as a bunny hop, and the crowd favorite, an intel flip, or as Austin Mortensen calls it, a Super Loopie Doopie.

The third grade had an amazing opportunity of planting tulips on the west side of Cherry Creek. Friends from Thanksgiving Point donated the bulbs to beautify our school. They let us observe and dissect tulip bulbs while explaining the anatomy of each bulb.

We will continue to make observations about our tulips as they grow throughout the school year. Come April and May, our red tulips will bloom! A big thank you to Thanksgiving Point.

The 3rd grade classes had an opportunity of visiting the Springville Library. Mrs. Moon taught us how to get library cards and reminded us of all the things we can check out: not just books. We had a behind the scenes tour of the Snake: the library sorting system. We appreciate having such a wonderful resource in our community.

Recognizing Mr. Talbot

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Wed, 10/02/2013 - 22:03

Today was National Custodians Day, so it's only fitting we recognize our faithful, hardworking, friendly head-custodian Mr. Talbot. Mr. Talbot has worked at Cherry Creek since it first became a school and even worked in the building when it was the Springville Middle School. He is from Benjamin and enjoys hunting, fishing and motorcycling. If you come early enough you might catch him ride up to work on his bike (motorbike that is). Mr. Talbot jokes that his favorite thing about his job is he has 830 kids he can tease all day. A favorite memory of his was noticing from afar when two girls came running towards each other around a corner and totally collided. From them on he always called one Crash and the other one Burn. Mr. Duncan will be the first to say what a great job Mr. Talbot and his staff do every day keeping the building clean and maintained. Thanks Mr. Talbot for all you do. We love you!
