November 2015

November in 3rd Grade

November has been such a fun month for third graders. Two highlights of November were the 3rd grade field trip to the City Offices and planting tulips! Every year 3rd graders learn about how to be a good citizen by visiting the city offices including the court room, the city council room, the police station, and the fire station! 3rd graders also have the opportunity of planting tulips on the west side of the school... check them out in the spring!

On November 9, Cherry Creek's PTA hosted the annual Reading Frenzy. The four sessions included guest readers sharing their books, refreshments with parents reading to their children in the cafeteria, and a free Book Giveaway to ALL that attended. There were many smiling faces at the end of the evening as they returned home with a book of their choice.
      The profits from the Scholastic Book Fair last month made the free book giveaway possible.
Thank you PTA.
