An enjoyable evening for all Cherry Creek families has held on Monday, November 18. Our wonderful PTA organized this event. Four rotating sessions were held. Our guest readers were Dan Evan, Fox 13 news anchor; Wilford Clyde, Springville's mayor; Lela Allmendinger, Springville City Library puppeteer; Allen Duke, Springville City firefighter/ parent; Corby Eason, BYU football alumni; George Hansen, police officer; Eileen Nagle, UVU Norda Theater; Mike Duncan, principal; Lori Blackburn, librarian; and Mr. Talbot, custodian. In the cafeteria, loaner books were available to read while eating brownies.
Cherry Creek is going chrome! Thanks to generous technology donations from various organizations, including our own PTA, all 3-6 grade classrooms will get their very own set of Chromebook laptops. Today, Mrs. Nielson's fifth grade got to explore finding the volume of rectangular prisms and had a great time!
Third grade has been enjoying all of our great brain reports! This months theme was the body and being healthy. We have had many student presentations, power points, poster boards and guest speakers! The guest speakers have been wonderful in Mr. Cornwall's class. Thank you!!!!
We went to visit the Springville Power Plant to find out how power is made. What a shock we got! We found out about the making of power and what would happen if we didn't ground ourselves. (See first photo.) We also found out how to generate electricity just in case the power went out. (See second photo.) We also saw what would happen to our heart if it was a banana. (See third photo.)
