We Learn: SAGE Commitment Cards

by Chalyce Peck

Mrs. Peck’s class created commitment cards for SAGE. We made goals for our training (homework), practice (class work) and game day (tests).

The idea came from the movie "When The Game Stands Tall." We talked about not getting a perfect score, but having perfect effort to show how much we learned and grew this year.

We Lead: Leadership Lessons with Mr. Andersen

Our incredible school counselor, Troy Andersen, spends time with each class to reinforce the 7 Habits. In recent months, students have helped create artwork showing ways that they live the habits, that Mr. Andersen then posts around the school. This way, the kids can have a personal reminder of ways to be their best selves. We're so grateful for Mr. Andersen and the time he takes to talk with our students and build a positive culture at our school!

This is Mrs. Crowley beginning with the end in mind! Even though she is done teaching at Cherry Creek after this year, she is staying up late some nights to complete her license upgrade requirements. This way, if she decides to teach again after her husband completes his master's degree, she will already have her Level II license ready to go!

There's so many great things going on this time of year, that it's hard to keep up with all the fun! We are grateful for the beautiful weather that helps our activities go smoothly.

This past week, many grade levels had talent shows. Aiyana Sherman in 6th grade shared her Native American heritage with a shawl dance! Fourth graders took a field trip to Utah Lake to learn about wetlands, fish, and mosquitos (yuck)! Fifth grade competed in a track meet, and many of our Cherry Creek crocs placed in their events.

Last week, Discovery Gateway Children's Museum brought their Potential Energy program to the kindergarten students and taught them about force and motion. The students had fun learning about push and pull with a couple different hands-on experiments. By synergizing and working as a team, they were able to play tug-of-war, move a balloon without touching it, and make their hover crafts move in a perfect circle.

We Lead: Cherry Creek Achieves Lighthouse Status

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Thu, 04/19/2018 - 15:12

Last week, Franklin Covey designated Cherry Creek Elementary as the newest Lighthouse School! Among thousands of schools world-wide that implement The Leader in Me program, only around 380 schools have received this honor. We could not be more proud of this achievement!

For the last four years, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members have worked to teach the 7 Habits and leadership principles to our students. Numberless people and hours have been contributed to shaping Cherry Creek into an incredible school. In order to achieve Lighthouse status, a school must demonstrate "mature" and "excellent" methods of implementing leadership principles. Although this is a great measure of our success, we will continue to grow and find better ways to practice leadership principles.

To celebrate reaching this milestone, Cherry Creek will host a family and community celebration on Monday, May 7th. The event will include an award ceremony, food, and entertainment. More details coming soon, but put it on your calendar, as it will be an event not to be missed!
