Fifth grade students have worked hard to set up shop at this years "mini society". Some stores were selling time to play video games, face painting, candy, toys, pokemon cards, and so much more! Once the stores close, the fifth graders will have an auction using the money they've earned. 

Teacher Changes Next Year

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Mon, 05/15/2017 - 10:08

It's always bitter-sweet to experience changes in who will be here at Cherry Creek year after year. We celebrate those who have reached retirement and congratulate those who will be moving on to other jobs or life adventures, but they will all be sorely missed. Some teachers will also be switching grade levels next year. On the bright side, we get to welcome some new faces to the Cherry Creek family! Here's the run-down of what's changing:

Teachers retiring:

Mrs. Mack, Mrs. Ernst, Mrs. Faux, Mrs. Beyal

4th Grade at Antelope Island

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Thu, 05/11/2017 - 12:01

Mrs. Gast's class was able to tag-a-long with Mrs. Robbin's class from Sage Creek Elementary. With the support of many parent helpers we took a nice long bus ride to Antelope Island. Students built water sheds, ate pickle weed, learned how to use binoculars, and learned about the surrounding wildlife. Students fought their way through THOUSANDS of bugs to wade in the Great Salt Lake. They caught brine shrimp and identified whether they were male or female. Students had a blast! We are grateful that we had the opportunity to go!

Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive. The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

Cherry Creek students went above and beyond their school-wide "wildly important goal" of moving up 1,300 reading levels. Collectively, they moved up 1,735 reading levels! We are so proud of our students and their parents who have put in so much time and effort to become better readers. 

We'll celebrate tonight by having the Green Man Group come to Cherry Creek for an awesome performance!
