The sixth graders (and some proactive 5th graders) hosted their annual science fair Friday. Students presented their projects 3 times to guest judges and were able to showcase their projects for parents as well as the student body. Ten students were awarded medals and will be advancing to the district science fair. Congratulations students!
Wow, can you believe we are already in Term 3? Here are a few pictures of the students enjoying donuts and hot choloate with candy canes, marshmellows, and whipped cream! Something cool about this perfect attendance party, and different from the previous ones, is that for term 2, we also kept track of the students who were checked out early from school. So the student that earned this reward were at school ALL day and EVERY day in term 2! WOW! Congratulations students!
On Thursday, January 21, Cherry Creek teachers and administrators hosted a Parent Math Night. The following ideas were addressed. Why is math taught differently than when I was in school? What is the benefit of teaching the math concept along with the procedure? What resources are available for parents to understand the current methods of instruction and be able to help their children out with homework? Breakout sessions were held to focus on different grade levels. Families that attended were able to take home a math game.
This week for Family Week, Wednesday was Family Pizza Night! Who doesn't love pizza?! Papa John's went in and offered hald off on their large and extra large pizzas for our Cherry Creek families!
