2nd Graders also celebrated the 100th Day of School with different activities!  They counted out 100 fruit loops and then got to eat the cereal with milk.  Some students got to see how many jumps they could do in 100 seconds.  Mrs. Davis and Quinn McSweeney dressed up as centenarians.  What a fun day in 2nd grade!

Mrs. Frossard’s 4th Grade class is learning about Utah History.  Native American people that lived in the Utah area wove baskets to carry things in, such as plants.  Students in Mrs. Frossard’s class wove paper strips together to make baskets to help them understand how others carried & transported things.

The Impossible Shot is becoming more probable at Cherry Creek!  Nicolas Ruiz, a 5th Grader in Mrs. Jarvis’ class, made the Impossible Shot on Monday.  What is it?  Are we our students thinking about Habit 1:  Begin With the End in Mind?  Or Habit 4:  Think Win-Win?  What ever is happening, the Impossible is not Impossible at Cherry Creek!
