Food Sharing Station

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Tue, 12/06/2016 - 13:41

Starting this week during lunch, there is a "Sharing Station" where students can put their unopened (school lunch) packaged items in to share with others. Any student (home lunch or school lunch) can then come get more to eat if they are still hungry. Yesterday, not a single full milk carton was thrown away! This is a great way for the kids to see that sharing helps others, and gives us a chance to think win-win!

This week's lucky spotlight teacher is Robert Sedgwick! Mr. Sedgwick has joined the fourth grade team this year, after having taught second grade for many years here at Cherry Creek. He loves to be a positive role model for kids. He loves working at Cherry Creek because, "everyone is so positive and willing to go the extra mile." Mr. Sedgwick certainly goes the extra mile for all of us as he is our technology guru. We would be lost and confused without him! His wife and four kids all love reading and having fun adventures together. Mr.

Teacher Spotlight: Miss Barrett

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Wed, 11/16/2016 - 15:31

Today's spotlight goes to our amazing speech-language pathologist (SLP), Janelle Barrett!  Miss Barrett is in her fourth year at Cherry Creek, and we're so grateful to have her!  She grew up all the way in Minnesota with her parents and four siblings.  Then she moved here to Utah to go to BYU for both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in communication disorders. When she's not busy being a wonderful SLP, Miss Barrett likes to cook, sew, play the violin, and do yoga.
