On April 17th, Cherry Creek hosted Area PTA Meeting. As part of the meeting, Mrs. Alderks' class performed the dance "Magic". Mrs. Deardeuff also led the school choir in singing "Seize the Day" from Newsies. Both groups did an amazing job. Nancy Taylor was presented with the PTA Service Award which was well-deserved. We love Mrs.
The sixth graders had their final Hershey Track experience. The students performed excellently, enjoyed chilly, but beautiful weather, and placed in multiple categories. Congratulations to all the participants and victors!
Pamela Cervantes, Park Pehrson, Sydney McDaniel, and Ella Unguren in
Mrs. Alderks & Boyers class, won an art contest for the Daily Herald.
Each week for 9 weeks, students illustrated a chapter of a sea turtle
story printed by the Daily Herald. Their pictures were submitted and
a professional graphic artist chose a finalist for each chapter.
These girls won a summer basket and their pictures will be displayed
As an end-of-unit celebration, the sixth graders enjoyed a medieval banquet and festival, wearing the attire of the time period. The feast was a menu of chili, toppings, rolls and capri sun. Students provided our entertainment in the form of a talent show. The fifth graders were challenged to a game of capture the flag on the field as the culmination of the day's festivities. Heraldry, full stomachs and celebration was had by all.
The sixth graders were invited to attend the annual program at BYU called Project Youth. BYU student volunteers host 1200 sixth graders from all over the county and introduce them to college life and experiences. Students were able to tour the campus and hear professors talk about their areas of expertise, everything from science to social work to education to anatomy to physical education, etc. They had a surprise snow storm while touring the campus. Students were rushing to find places of refuge to try to stay dry.
