What a phenomenal turnout of parents and children to our annual eating and reading morning! The cinnamon rolls were delicious, accompanied by milk, chocolate milk and orange juice. Families snuggled up with their goodies and a good book and read and read and read. We loved that grandparents joined us also. A big thank you to the PTA for organizing this great event. We look forward to Dads and Donuts in the spring!
Students at Cherry Creek were able to watch amazing bike stunts from Rich & Skyler Wieber of Minnesota. The father and son pair performed incredible tricks and educated the students in bike safety and how to live an awesome, drug free life. Drew from Mrs. Baldwin's class got to demonstrate how to check your bike to make sure it's safe to ride. At the end of the assembly, Skyler Wieber jumped his bike over Mr. Duncan, Mrs. Nielson, and former Cherry Creek principal Mr. Balzotti. Kayla, also, from Mrs.
Cherry Creek Elementary held an assembly on November 12 to honor Veterans Day. The students were able to take part in a flag ceremony presented by the Springville American Legion.

Cherry Creek students have been working hard all year to earn GOLD Croc Claws. Once a claw has been earned then those students get to draw a number for the Golden Croc Club bingo board. These students are the first lucky bingo winners and got to party with the principal during lunch. They enjoyed pizza, breadsticks and games for an entire hour--congratulations to our winners! (Miranda Sparks, Conner Andreason, James Tripp, Ogden Riley, Oliver Unguren, Caleb Judd, Hailey Robertson, Brenton Smith, Amy Robertson, Emma Biesinger)
It was Election Day at the school for not only parents and registered voters, but for 5th and 6th grade students who had "registered". A handout was given to each student with both sides of the major issues reported from scholastic.com's website (without a candidate's name attached). The students took these home, discussed them with their parents, then had the form signed and returned. This became their voter registration. Thanks to Mrs.
Cherry Creek's annual Halloween parade and carnival were a smashing success. Ghoulish goblins, whirling witches, super heroes and more. The carnival featured games of all sorts, prizes to be won, decorated soda bottles and treats for all the little monsters. The highlight of the celebration for many was the spook alley hosted by the Springville High Drill Team under the direction of Ali Minor and Kelsey Clements. Some students came out well scared and others ran back for a 2nd, 3rd and 4th time through.
