Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Wed, 12/19/2012 - 18:41

Math and basketball make a great mix!  Mrs. Chang's class was visited by five members of the Springville High Basketball team.  The basketball players practiced math and read with the second graders providing fabulous role models and having fun at the same time.

The SHS basketball team then went on to play that night against Spanish Fork High and won by 18 points! Those 2nd graders really got the players' minds ready for the game.

Thursday, December 13th the Cherry Creek Choir had the chance to show off all their hard work and skills to their parents at an evening concert.  The choir performed 12 different songs with soloists, harmonies and even some fun props.  The choir has been rehearsing these songs at early morning practices since the beginning of October.  Choir rehearsals will resume (and be open to new 3-6 grade students) mid-March...listen to morning announcements or watch for a note home for more details.  Thanks to all the staff and parents for making this choir a possibility!

Sixth Grade War

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Wed, 12/12/2012 - 12:09

The sixth graders are learning about integers and absolute values. They played a game called Absolute Value War where they had positive and negative numbers. Both students turned over a card and made a statement about what the number was and it's absolute value. The number with the lowest absolute value (number closest to zero) won. Students really enjoyed playing the game and improving their knowledge of integers.
