Magic Mike also had a big surprise for Cherry Creek!  He had a cardboard cut out of his favorite hero…it was covered with paper, so we didn’t know WHO his hero was.  With the help of a few students, his hero was uncovered…the surprise was that it was Mrs. Nielson. Mrs. Nielson was chosen by her peers as  Teacher of the Year at Cherry Creek.  Congratulations Mrs. Nielson!  She is a hero at Cherry Creek, making learning fun and interesting in her LEGO themed room!

Magic Mike Hamilton came and mesmerized Cherry Creek with his magic and message of internet safety.  He told Cherry Creek Crocs that they have the power…the power to make better choices when on the internet.  Students and Teachers helped Magic Mike create magical moments, changing handkerchiefs to the American flag, making a bunny appear, changing an origami paper flower into a real rose, levitating a table and teleporting a torn playing card to appear in a bag of chips.  Amazing!  Cherry Creek Crocs have the Power!  Boo yah!

This week, a 3rd Grade student in Mrs. Loomis’ class traded in his Croc Cash to buy Mrs. Darrington’s chair for a day.  Croc Cash is given out by teachers and staff to students that are doing good things at Cherry Creek.  It takes a long time to save up enough Croc Cash to buy Mrs. Darrington’s comfy chair!
