Ms. Baldwin is our next spotlight teacher! Jen Baldwin is an incredible second grade teacher, and we are so lucky to have her at Cherry Creek. Ms. Baldwin has two beautiful daughters, one who is currently serving an LDS mission in WA, and a sophomore at Springville High School.  Jen graduated from UVU and loves to teach math! She loves to share her love with her students and help them see their potential. Jen also loves dark chocolate, mountain biking, and hugs. A random fact about Ms. Baldwin is that she has never had a cavity! Ms. Baldwin is such a dedicated and caring teacher who works so hard to reach every single student. We love you, Jen!

Food Sharing Station

Starting this week during lunch, there is a "Sharing Station" where students can put their unopened (school lunch) packaged items in to share with others. Any student (home lunch or school lunch) can then come get more to eat if they are still hungry. Yesterday, not a single full milk carton was thrown away! This is a great way for the kids to see that sharing helps others, and gives us a chance to think win-win!
