Every year, the teachers at Cherry Creek have the opportunity to nominate one of their fellow faculty members to receive the Crystal Apple Award. This award is given to a teacher who has made a positive difference in the lives of students and to the entire school community. This year, Mr. Cornwall was honored to receive this special award. Some of his colleagues had the opportunity to share their appreciation for Mr. Cornwall's dedication to effective teaching methods and his natural way of inspiring both students and teachers.
There's nothing we love to do more at Cherry Creek than to celebrate our students' success! Yesterday, we had another victory lap around the school to cheer on those students who received a Leader of the Month or Principal's Top Croc award. During the victory assembly following, Mr. Duncan talked to the kids about how important it is to read every day. Reading is such a strong indicator of school performance and life-long success. Mr. Duncan told the students about his commitment to read a book for thirty minutes daily this next month.
