Synergy Bracelets

Students in Mrs. Call's class made synergy bracelets to learn about Habit #6: Synergize. Students picked two colors for their bracelet--one to represent themselves, and one to represent everyone else. They learned to weave the two colors together to remind them that we're "better together."

Mrs. Gast's students entered the Reading Cafe last week. Students enjoyed mood lighting, silver platters filled with snacks and a variety of reading material. Students ate snacks while looking through multiple genres of books and discussed books that they already love! We LOVE reading!!

Think BIG

What does it mean to be "BIG" at Cherry Creek? That's the question Mr. Duncan asked when he came to visit every classroom this week. He read the book "Think BIG" to every class and talked about what this means for the kids. 

Being BIG means being your best self, being responsible, being helpful and kind. You don't get an award for being BIG, but you get a good feeling inside. When Mr. Duncan asked the students what it means to be BIG at Cherry Creek, some said:

"Helping friends at recess."

"Eating healthy things."

"Being nice."

"Helping someone little reach something up high."

"Listening to your teacher."

Every new day is a gift. It's an opportunity to be your best self--to be BIG!
