Thursday, December 13th the Cherry Creek Choir had the chance to show off all their hard work and skills to their parents at an evening concert. The choir performed 12 different songs with soloists, harmonies and even some fun props. The choir has been rehearsing these songs at early morning practices since the beginning of October. Choir rehearsals will resume (and be open to new 3-6 grade students) mid-March...listen to morning announcements or watch for a note home for more details. Thanks to all the staff and parents for making this choir a possibility!

Copies of his book "Queen Infinity" were provided for each teacher and staff member, where he gladly signed each copy. Mrs.
The sixth graders are learning about integers and absolute values. They played a game called Absolute Value War where they had positive and negative numbers. Both students turned over a card and made a statement about what the number was and it's absolute value. The number with the lowest absolute value (number closest to zero) won. Students really enjoyed playing the game and improving their knowledge of integers.
Congratulations to all our November award recipients! (My apologies for the late addition to the website.)
