We Lead: Begin With the End in Mind for Friday Fun Day

We do Friday Fun Day in 5th grade for the students who get their homework done. Since there are three 5th grade classes it works perfectly. If you get your homework done you get to play capture the flag. If you do not get your homework done you go to one of the 5th grade classrooms to read or do math. It helps the students begin with the end in mind and want to get their homework done so they can have a chance to have extra fun.

It's that time of year when the brackets come out, and the championship games begin! But at Cherry Creek, the competition isn't to see which 3rd-6th grade students are the best at basketball, but at remembering their multiplication math facts. This past week, every student in 3rd-6th grade competed for spots in the Sweet 16 round. Prizes get a little bit bigger as each round progresses. Let the games begin!

Last week was National School Breakfast Week, and our amazing lunch room staff made it a fun and motivating week for the kids. The best day was Friday when the teachers were invited to enjoy breakfast with their students in the cafeteria. The kids were so excited to see their teachers coming to eat with them! They had big smiles on their faces as they grabbed a tray and found a seat by their teacher. Breakfast is such an important thing to get your day started off right!

The fun of working with robots continues this week as our high school student instructors from Springville High School teach us about the many parts that make a robot work! We had a chance to work on assembling the parts, which was a fun challenge!

One of the many student jobs available for students to apply for is the role of a student mentor. This job is reserved for students in upper grades, and allows them a chance to mentor a student in a younger grade. The mentors help students catch up on homework or get extra reading practice, all while building new friendships.

This year students from Springville High School are coming to our school and teaching 5th graders about robots and programming them. The students are programming finches, or little robots, to do things like move forward and backward and even spin. It is a really cool experience to learn how to do all of these cool things. They help all of the kids to learn how to make the robot move and talk. This is helping us learn and it is an amazing experience for these students. The high school students are helping our program. It is super fun.

We do our best to spread kindness and inspire friendship. Whenever someone in our class has a birthday, they sit at the front of the room while everyone comes up to the smart board to write something kind about them. It's a great way to lift each other up--especially on someone's birthday!

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents, and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools. A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday February 7th and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21st, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.
