We Inspire: Penny Wars for Grandma Long

Beginning today through April 18th, the Student Lighthouse Team is sponsoring this year's Penny Wars to benefit Grandma Long. Grandma Long has volunteered in our kindergarten classrooms for the past 12 years, and has blessed so many students and teachers with her kindness and help. Here's how the penny wars will work:

Each grade level has a jar in the office. Pennies and cash count for "positive" points. (Penny = one point, $1 = 100 points). Silver coins count as "negative" points when placed in other grade levels' jars. At the end of the day on April 18th, each grade's points will be counted. The grade level with the most points will earn a donut party. If the whole school collects more than $1,000, the whole school will earn an extra recess to celebrate. 

Thank you for your generosity on behalf of our Cherry Creek family!

Today marked a big milestone for Cherry Creek's journey as a Leader In Me school. Visitors from Franklin Covey (the parent company of The Leader In Me program) came to visit our school to complete a "Lighthouse Review". Schools that have implemented the Leader In Me with exceptionalism and consistency across multiple years are eligible to be designated as a "Lighthouse School". It's our goal to be awarded with Lighthouse status, and we look forward to the feedback we receive! We are proud of our Cherry Creek leaders!

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.
