Today marked a big milestone for Cherry Creek's journey as a Leader In Me school. Visitors from Franklin Covey (the parent company of The Leader In Me program) came to visit our school to complete a "Lighthouse Review". Schools that have implemented the Leader In Me with exceptionalism and consistency across multiple years are eligible to be designated as a "Lighthouse School". It's our goal to be awarded with Lighthouse status, and we look forward to the feedback we receive! We are proud of our Cherry Creek leaders!
It is time for kindergarten pre-registration for the 2018-19 school year! Please click on the following link and follow the directions: http://cherrycreek.nebo.edu/content/kindergarten-pre-registration
We would like pre-registration to be completed by Thursday, March 22nd. Then we invite you and your child back to complete the registration process on August 1st. Your child will also be given a brief assessment at that time.
We do Friday Fun Day in 5th grade for the students who get their homework done. Since there are three 5th grade classes it works perfectly. If you get your homework done you get to play capture the flag. If you do not get your homework done you go to one of the 5th grade classrooms to read or do math. It helps the students begin with the end in mind and want to get their homework done so they can have a chance to have extra fun.
It's that time of year when the brackets come out, and the championship games begin! But at Cherry Creek, the competition isn't to see which 3rd-6th grade students are the best at basketball, but at remembering their multiplication math facts. This past week, every student in 3rd-6th grade competed for spots in the Sweet 16 round. Prizes get a little bit bigger as each round progresses. Let the games begin!
Last week was National School Breakfast Week, and our amazing lunch room staff made it a fun and motivating week for the kids. The best day was Friday when the teachers were invited to enjoy breakfast with their students in the cafeteria. The kids were so excited to see their teachers coming to eat with them! They had big smiles on their faces as they grabbed a tray and found a seat by their teacher. Breakfast is such an important thing to get your day started off right!
The fun of working with robots continues this week as our high school student instructors from Springville High School teach us about the many parts that make a robot work! We had a chance to work on assembling the parts, which was a fun challenge!
One of the many student jobs available for students to apply for is the role of a student mentor. This job is reserved for students in upper grades, and allows them a chance to mentor a student in a younger grade. The mentors help students catch up on homework or get extra reading practice, all while building new friendships.
