BYU's The Buff Don't Puff and Cherry Creek's 4th Grade

Submitted by robert.sedgwick on

BYU basketball player Josh Sharp came to Cherry Creek Elementary to encourage the 4th grade to be smokin' hot athletic stars instead of smokin' something else.  The fourth graders enjoyed learning about the negative affects of alcohol, drugs and tobacco on the body from a variety of BYU athletes on DVD including basketball star Jimmer Fredette, diving champion Brandon Watson, and soccer forward Jennie Marshall.  These students are excited to say that, "The Buff Don't Puff!"

3rd Graders Work for Willy Wonka

Submitted by robert.sedgwick on

Third grade students had their first field trip at school.

They went to Willy Wonka's Candy Factory and helped

package candy.  They learned to package in groups of ten.

They are going to take their "job" training back into the classroom

and use it in their math class.

Cherry Creek Students Win Bikes For READING!

During the 2010-2011 school year, Cherry Creek Elementary school students participated in the Ken Garff "Road to Success" program.  Students were encouraged to read at least 20 minutes EVERY DAY.  Each time a student read for 5 days a week, they got to put their name into a drawing for prizes.  Each time they read 7 days a week, they got to put their name into the drawing twice!  The program has been a great motivator for the students.

On May 6, 2011, students at Cherry Creek Elementary came to school early to have muffins and create reading memories with their moms.  This year the students were given a special gift!  In memory of Viola Farnsworth, a beloved teacher who passed away earlier this year, each student received a free book from her classroom library.  Mrs. Farnsworth's dedication to the children at this school has been sorely missed!  Faculty and staff felt like this would be a great way to honor her and to help their students develop a love for reading!
