Dear community partners:


Join us in sharing the news – PBS KIDS Utah is celebrating 20 years of the Writers and Illustrators Contest! This year’s theme is Celebrate the Great Outdoors. The contest is an initiative that fosters imagination and creativity in young artists and writers. Every year, PBS KIDS Utah invites children K-6th grades throughout the state to participate.


I want to support your efforts in this year’s contest. Please reach out to me if you are interested in hosting writing workshops or if you have a fun idea to get the kids in your area excited about submitting a story. I would be happy to send PBS KIDS goodies as incentives to you, your students, and your patrons! You can start promoting the contest by displaying and distributing the enclosed/attached posters and entry forms.


I hope you will join us in bringing the love of reading and the joy of self-expression to children in your community. If you are interested in being involved, please contact me using the information below. PBS Kids Utah Writers & Illustrators Contest information can be found at

We are delighted to announce that Mrs. Bethany Clark, our Title One Coordinator, has been appointed the Principal of Larsen Elementary.  Mrs. Clark will assume this position in July of this year.  Mrs. Clark will be missed by each and every one of us at Cherry Creek.  Mrs. Clark has been instrumental in the day to day happenings at Cherry Creek for the past 5 years.  She coordinates student interventions, arranges student supervision, plans Victory Assemblies, monitors student needs and wellbeing, mentors teachers and technicians, acts as the school P.R. representative, serves on the School Community Council, coordinates all testing, fills in for teachers, secretaries, and the principal as needed, and many many more things.  Mrs. Clark is beloved by all, and we will miss her giant smile, pleasant demeanor, and cheerful personality.  The Larsen Leopards are getting a treasure and we are so excited for her new adventures.  We love you Mrs. Clark!!! 

School Spirit!
