The Impossible Shot is becoming more probable at Cherry Creek!  Nicolas Ruiz, a 5th Grader in Mrs. Jarvis’ class, made the Impossible Shot on Monday.  What is it?  Are we our students thinking about Habit 1:  Begin With the End in Mind?  Or Habit 4:  Think Win-Win?  What ever is happening, the Impossible is not Impossible at Cherry Creek!

Today was the first day of Red Ribbon Week.  The PTA passed out mustaches, beards, goatees and eyebrows for those who participated in the lunch activity “Be a Media Detective.”  T.H.I.N.K.  Every day at lunch, the PTA will have an activity to get you to think about your media choices. Today, the focus was examining ads and images with the question, “Is it True?” What will the PTA do tomorrow?
