Last week, the Student Lighthouse Team met for the first time, had a great time getting to know each other, and learning how they would work together this year. The Student Lighthouse Team is comprised of one student from each class in the school. Mr. Duncan came and spoke with them about being leaders and how to help people feel welcome and happy. They also brainstormed with Mrs. Sumsion and Mrs. Call, their leadership mentors, about how they could serve the school this year.

The first Victory Assembly of the school year was today, celebrating students receiving the "Leader of the Month" and "Top Croc" awards. On the way to the assembly, students receiving these awards were applauded by their fellow students during a victory lap around the school with Crocky, the Cherry Creek mascot. At the assembly, Mr. Duncan drew names of an additional 25 students who received a Croc Card in the month of September. These students were invited to the Croc Cave for games today with Mr. Duncan.

Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Finch!

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Tue, 10/04/2016 - 12:11

Today, we're putting the spotlight on Mrs. Finch, one of our fine special education teachers! She teaches students grades 4-6 in reading, writing, and math (math being her favorite!) Ever since she was young, Mrs. Finch has known she wanted to help special education students, so she attended Utah State University to do just that. She is married to her high school sweetheart, has one daughter, and a son on the way! If she had all the time in the world, she would spend time at her family's cabin, eat junk food, and dance. Mrs. Finch is a former dance instructor, and is very talented! Mrs.

Cherry Creek Participates in CMI Training

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Mon, 10/03/2016 - 16:15

Starting this year, teachers at Cherry Creek are spending extra time after school on early-out days to participate in CMI (Comprehensive Math Instruction) training. Today's lesson was on how to better engage students and strategies to help students reason among themselves instead of getting answers from the teacher. It's an impressive sight to see our dedicated Cherry Creek teachers working together to improve their own knowledge and skills!
