February 2015 PEAK Award Winners

Jennifer Baldwin, Teacher, Cherry Creek Elementary
Nominated by: Jessie Simonsen & Maggie Mecham
“Ms. Baldwin is my son's teacher. He has some behavioral issues and has an IEP. From the beginning of the school year; if Ms. Baldwin has a correction to tell my son, she does so in a loving way and always tells him something positive that he is doing as well. She keeps me updated on how my son is doing.  As a team, they come up with how my son could do better. Ms. Baldwin impacted my perception by seeing that someone does care about my son and has his best interest in mind. Greatest Teacher in the world!! She is so loving and kind and just a great person!!”

Honorable mention were Angel H. (Valentine Spirit); Robert G. (Most Disney); Zane S. (Most Sporty); Haylee H. (Most Girlish); and Abigail S. (Judge's Choice).

Other honorable mention were Alyssa W. (Most School Spirit); Ben R. (Most Tasty); Toa F. (Most Movie-Like); and Lily B. (7-Habits).

Our annual science fair was held today where 6th graders and some invited 5th graders were able to demonstrate how they applied the scientific method to a unique problem or question. Students were judged by volunteers from BYU, our community and Questar. (Big thanks!!) Ten students' scores qualified them to advance to the district fair held later this month. The teachers were very impressed with the students' hard work and scientific thinking. Students from the ALC also demonstrated their scientific thinking with puzzle cubes.
