Our very own Mr. Duncan was nominated and selected as the Rookie Principal of the Year for Nebo School District and we couldn't be prouder! Mr. Duncan was hired to replace Mr. Balzotti after his retirement at the end of the 2012 school year.  From Mr. Duncan's leadership, Cherry Creek has made changes and improvements to help the students be as successful as possible here. He is known for his warmth, friendship, leadership and of course, love of the Atlanta Braves and BYU athletics. Here are just a few of the comments about Mr. Duncan's award made by the students, parents and faculty:

Dictionary Donation

Thanks to the Rotary Club for bringing the third graders their own 'Student Dictionaries'! Mr. Duncan told us how we could use them for a "Word of the Day". Students explored their dictionaries and found that they don't only have words, but they have multiplication charts, maps, sign language and more. Some said they wanted to keep their dictionaries until college... Happy word hunting 3rd graders!

Harward Farms Donates Pumpkins

Monday morning Harward Farms pulled up a huge flatbed trailer full of pumpkins to donate to each student at Cherry Creek. That's over 850 pumpkins! The students received a pumpkin with a smile from the workers and some even got a special sticker. Since the first graders were on their field trip, the 6th graders got to surprise them by leaving a pumpkin on each student's desk. The students had time during school to paint and decorate their pumpkins with future winners being voted on by the student council and faculty. Look for the pumpkins to line the halls of the school.
