3rd grade students do a relay sort to decide the similarities and differences in these shapes. Is it a quadrilateral, polygon, parallelogram, or other? Can some shapes fit in more than one category? Thanks Starr David for this fun activity... We love student teachers at Cherry Creek!

Mrs. Bergera's kindergarten classes have had an amazing opportunity over the past 3 months to work with a fun student teacher named Ms. Jones.   Ms. Jones has been an outstanding teacher and we are sure going to miss her. Thanks for all your hard work Ms. Jones!! 

Questar Adopts Cherry Creek as a Partner School

From Questar Gas: What an amazing and energetic opportunity! On March 19, 2014 we were able to partner with Cherry Creek Elementary School, Home of the Crocs in Springville Utah. The Volunteer Team is anxious to get started- literally! March 20, 2014 we are going to hit the ground running with the annual “Croc Walk”. QUESTAR put together backpacks with a few incentive prizes for the students from K thru 6th. We will also be partnering with the “Read Today” program (www.readtoday.com) and helping out and giving our QUESTAR Energy where needed.

The sixth graders' medieval unit culminated in a day of festivities! We held a banquet, eating lunch together, holding a fabulous talent show and playing a game of capture the flag, having challenged another grade level to a duel. We appreciate our parents and support staff for their help in setting up and cleaning up as well as the students for their hard work. Check out Facebook for lots more photos!

Sixth graders got to explore a little deeper about microorganisms in class this week. They created their own slides using gutter water, looked at insect wings and other specimens through a microscope, created and wrote about a germ, made flip books to simulate the movement of bacteria and diagrammed a microscope. The students really enjoyed the microscope centers. All this fun was just another day in sixth grade! Check out Facebook for more photos!
