The faculty of Cherry Creek nominated Amy Braithwaite, first grade teacher, as their choice for Teacher of the Year 2016. She was honored at Nebo Board Meeting on April 13.
Mrs. Braithwaite has taught first grade at Grant and Cherry Creek schools for sixteen years.
She is highly recommended to observe during focused observation by instructional coaches and intern coordinators. Her students are well managed and loved as they launch into reading success.
Upon learning about Mrs. Braithwaite's honor, one of her first grade colleagues said:
"Amy always has a smile on her face and I love being around her. She is also approachable and I can ask her any question, any time of the day and I always receive helpful answers. Some days I just want to pick her brain and steal everything she does as a teacher !:). She is a talented, patient, and positive teacher, who I really admire, not only as a teacher, but as a person as well. I'm grateful I am on the same team as her because she has helped show me the ropes this year.
Congratulations, Mrs. Braithwaite. This honor is well deserved!!
Have you heard about our Leadership Day?! One day during the year, leaders from the community are invited to come to Cherry Creek to see what the Leader in Me program is all about. From student speeches, flash mob dance performances, classroom tours to school-wide tours, grade level song perfomances, student greeters and photographers, and student leadership roles, students from every grade level get to show their own form leadership. The feeling at the school is incredible when you see the pride and happiness each of the students has because they know that they are all leaders. Here are a few highlights from this awesome day!

Cherry Creek has been really working on their attendance! One of the goals this year is to have 20 or less tardies each day. When we reach that goal, Mr. Duncan plays a fun song and all of the students in the whole school get to get up and dance around their classrooms to celebrate! Mrs. Kadish's kindergarteners sure had fun celebrating meetin our tartdy goal last week!
The 6th graders had visits Tuesday from Mapleton Junior High counselors and music teachers to help get them excited about moving to junior high next year.

SJHS students will get their registration materials later this month.
