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!
Mrs. Smartt's class had a fabulous time playing games, having a photo booth, making Christmas trees, and drinking hot cocoa for their Christmas party!

“Mrs. Smartt is a wonderful teacher. She is organized, thoughtful, and kind.She made kindergarten a wonderful experience for my child! Mrs. Smartt keeps her class so engaged and orderly. Her students love her and excel in her class. I have seen her work with students with disabilities, she is amazing and inspiring. Mrs. Smartt is fun, positive, and happy while enforcing respect and kindness all around her. Both of my children love school, and I believe it is because of her! Mrs. Smartt is an exceptional teacher who obviously enjoys her job and the students in her classroom.”
Cherry Creek is so lucky to able to work with the Latinos in Action from Springville Junior High. The students come to Cherry Creek three times a week. Each junior high student has an elementary student that they work with. They work on reading, math, writing, or anything that the student might need help on. Cherry Creek students look forward to seeing their new friends... What a great program!
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!
Kenlee Hone is the daughter of Gary and Kerrie Hone. She is a 6th grader at Cherry Creek Elementary. She was nominated by both her Principal Mike Duncan and her former teacher Cheryl Nielsen.
