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.
On May 6, 2011, students at Cherry Creek Elementary came to school early to have muffins and create reading memories with their moms. This year the students were given a special gift! In memory of Viola Farnsworth, a beloved teacher who passed away earlier this year, each student received a free book from her classroom library. Mrs. Farnsworth's dedication to the children at this school has been sorely missed! Faculty and staff felt like this would be a great way to honor her and to help their students develop a love for reading!
On October 25, 2010 students at Cherry Creek Elementary in Springville received special awards. Three students from each class were chosen to receive awards for scholarship (red awards), citizenship (yellow awards), or special recognition (blue awards).

Kinder: Brenna Tate, Delanie O'Brien, Layna Boone, Eli Brown, Juve Lopez
On Friday, October 22nd, members of the Utah Opera hosted "Who Wants to Be An Opera Star" at Cherry Creek Elementary in Springville. The students were very entertained and even learned a few things about opera during the assembly. Who knows. Maybe some of our students will grow up to be an opera star!
Tuesday, October 19th was "Walk to School Day" at Cherry Creek Elementary in Springville. Students were encouraged to walk/ride their bikes to school. Many of them even remembered to wear green to show that they are trying to be safe!
