October's victory assembly to celebrate Leaders of the Month, Top Crocs, and progress on our school-wide WIGs was held this morning. It all started with another victory lap around the school for Leaders of the Month and Top Crocs to be cheered on by their peers. Then the whole school gathered in the auditorium for the assembly.

The teacher spotlights continue, this time with Mrs. Call! Annie Call is new to Cherry Creek this year, and was an intern teacher at Hobble Creek Elementary last year. Mrs. Call went to BYU to study education, but she also received a minor in TESOL and Family Life. She met her husband at BYU, and they have been married for four years. Some fun facts about Mrs. Call include her talent for talking in movie quotes, enjoying going to the library, loving Netflix, and she can sing! Her favorite teacher gifts are clorox wipes and peanut butter M&M's.

In a carved out pumpkin, students put in baking soda, a few drops of dish soap, and vinegar. Each student voted on a hypothesis they thought would happen. Sure enough, the pumpkin erupted with foam! What a fun way for the students in Mrs.
