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!
