Thank you so much to the Nebo Foundation for funding a Grant and also to our amazing PTA and our wonderful Principal Duncan for contributing matching funds for new music equipment. These funds will be used towards a classroom set of hand drums. The hand drums will be used to explore rhythms and beats. The students will be able to play written rhythms and create some of their own. Since the hand drums are different sizes, they will have different tones and pitches to create fun music. All Cherry Creek students kindergarten through 6th grade will enjoy these drums for many years to come. We are so excited to try them out!
Have you ever wondered about some of the creatures that live in the rainforest? Loveland Living Planet Aquarium visited Cherry Creek Second Grade on April 4, 2014 and taught them all about creatures from rainforests all over the world. Students were able to look, listen, and touch learning about these amazing creatures.
