We Learn: SHS Students Teach Robotics and Coding

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Wed, 02/28/2018 - 14:23

This year students from Springville High School are coming to our school and teaching 5th graders about robots and programming them. The students are programming finches, or little robots, to do things like move forward and backward and even spin. It is a really cool experience to learn how to do all of these cool things. They help all of the kids to learn how to make the robot move and talk. This is helping us learn and it is an amazing experience for these students. The high school students are helping our program. It is super fun.

We Inspire: Birthday Nice Notes

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Wed, 02/14/2018 - 14:00

We do our best to spread kindness and inspire friendship. Whenever someone in our class has a birthday, they sit at the front of the room while everyone comes up to the smart board to write something kind about them. It's a great way to lift each other up--especially on someone's birthday!

We Lead: Student Jobs

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Fri, 02/09/2018 - 16:33

You'd think the students had put the teachers out of a job! They help fill so many responsibilities both in their classrooms and around the school. Every student has the chance to contribute to how Cherry Creek operates day in and day out, and they do such great work! Some jobs include morning announcements, setting up for assemblies, leading lines quietly down the hall, time keepers, cleaners, delivering office notes, conducting morning lead time, keeping computers charged, and passing out papers. The jobs are endless!

This week is White Ribbon Week to teach students about internet and media safety. On Monday, students participated in a "Net Smartz" assembly, where they learned strategies for how to stay safe on the internet and manage how much time they spend with technology. They watched a video from Kid President that reminded them how ordinary people can do extraordinary things by being a smart digital citizen.

Students will participate in activities every day this week to focus on different points of internet and media safety.
