BYU basketball player Josh Sharp came to Cherry Creek Elementary to encourage the 4th grade to be smokin' hot athletic stars instead of smokin' something else. The fourth graders enjoyed learning about the negative affects of alcohol, drugs and tobacco on the body from a variety of BYU athletes on DVD including basketball star Jimmer Fredette, diving champion Brandon Watson, and soccer forward Jennie Marshall. These students are excited to say that, "The Buff Don't Puff!"
Welcome Kindergarten Students
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Parkins' class are
excited to learn how to read on their first day of school. Cherry Creek
Elementary will welcome over 150 new kindergarten students this year.
Third grade students had their first field trip at school.
They went to Willy Wonka's Candy Factory and helped
package candy. They learned to package in groups of ten.
They are going to take their "job" training back into the classroom
and use it in their math class.
During the 2010-2011 school year, Cherry Creek Elementary school students participated in the Ken Garff "Road to Success" program. Students were encouraged to read at least 20 minutes EVERY DAY. Each time a student read for 5 days a week, they got to put their name into a drawing for prizes. Each time they read 7 days a week, they got to put their name into the drawing twice! The program has been a great motivator for the students.
