The Impossible Shot is becoming a daily occurrence at Cherry Creek!  Today, Ximena Acevedo, a 6th Grader in Mrs. Jarvis’ Class, made the Impossible Shot!  Congratulations!  Is luck, skill or positive thinking?  Whatever it is, Cherry Creek Crocs are making it seem easy!

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.

Students in Mrs. Smallcomb’s music class used Boomwhackers to learn about Tempo and Pitch.  Mrs. Smallcomb finds unique ways to teach the basics of music.  She makes learning music fun and interesting!

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!

I Mustache You a Question! Are You a Media Detective? Is It True?

Submitted by jan.grotegut on Mon, 01/23/2023 - 14:29

Today was the first day of Red Ribbon Week.  The PTA passed out mustaches, beards, goatees and eyebrows for those who participated in the lunch activity “Be a Media Detective.”  T.H.I.N.K.  Every day at lunch, the PTA will have an activity to get you to think about your media choices. Today, the focus was examining ads and images with the question, “Is it True?” What will the PTA do tomorrow?

Have you noticed all the Cherry Creek Students being tutored in classes and in the halls on Tuesdays and Thursdays?   Thanks to the Latinos In Action from SJHS, our students are getting some extra help in reading and letter recognition.  From January-April, these wonderful students will be volunteering at Cherry Creek to help our students with Literacy Tutoring.  We are grateful for your service to the community and for your example of leadership to our Cherry Creek Students and Staff!  Some of these students are former Cherry Creek Crocs!
