Students at Cherry Creek Elementary held their final Ken Garff Road to Success rewards assembly. The students received tickets for certain numbers of days read at home throughout the school year. At the assembly, Mr. Duncan and Ms. Ferguson drew out tickets from a giant tumbler and MANY students were awarded prizes, from bouncy balls, hackey sacks and books to backpacks, camp chairs, ipods, bikes and $50 savings bonds towards college.  The students were very excited to hear their names read and some students won multiple prizes.

Author J. Scott Savage inspired students today during an assembly to encourage reading AND writing from the Cherry Creek Crocs. Using student participation, they sketched out a storyline involving a 10-year-old protagonist, giant banana, 5 really boring movies and an attacking picnic basket. Students were encouraged to share their stories through writing in class, as well as to visit him at the Springville Public Library that night. Mr. Savage is the author of the Farworld fantasy series and the Case File 13 monster series.
