Wow, can you believe we are already in Term 3? Here are a few pictures of the students enjoying donuts and hot choloate with candy canes, marshmellows, and whipped cream! Something cool about this perfect attendance party, and different from the previous ones, is that for term 2, we also kept track of the students who were checked out early from school. So the student that earned this reward were at school ALL day and EVERY day in term 2! WOW! Congratulations students!

Math Night 2016

Attributions: 

On Thursday, January 21, Cherry Creek teachers and administrators hosted a Parent Math Night. The following ideas were addressed. Why is math taught differently than when I was in school?  What is the benefit of teaching the math concept along with the procedure? What resources are available for parents to understand the current methods of instruction and be able to help their children out with homework?  Breakout sessions were held to focus on different grade levels. Families that attended were able to take home a math game.

Leader's University

This week, third graders had a graduation ceremony to honor the students who participated in the Leader's University. Leader's University is a program where students have the opportunity to show their leadership in and out of school. While reaching for and maintaining certain grades in areas such as spelling, homework, and mah facts, students also go above and beyond by completing service projects, Great Brain reports (social studies and science related), and book reports each month, as well as participation in school events. Third grade was excited to announce the students who received Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees for the first "semester" of the school year. Congratulations to all of the students who worked so hard to earn the their degrees.! We are excited for this next semester of Leader's University in 3rd grade!!

Goals and Resolutions for 2016

Students from all grade levels have been making goals and resolutions for the New Year of 2016. Using all different ways to represent this, many students have displayed their goals to help them improve for the next year. In addition to the personal and academic WIGs that the students set for the Leader in Me program, many students have thought of some other areas that they can work on. Good luck Crocs!
