Principal Moment

It is the time of year teachers need to put on their hardhats, tie yellow caution tape across their doors, and lay out orange cones in the halls.  They will need to stand guard at the garbage cans, handing back papers that forgot where the ‘finished’ work basket is.

You have probably never been able to observe how kids clean out their desks.  They don’t take out their books and papers and lay them on top of their desks.  Oh no.  They reach their arms into their desks, pull everything out at the same time, and spread it all out on the floor like it’s their Halloween candy. 

If ever there be an emergency, we could sustain students for quite some time on all the lost bags of Cheetos, black bananas, and Smarties that will magical appear and also answer the question of  “What is that smell?” 

Teachers, don’t fight it.  Make it a party; the games will be “Stuff the Garbage Can until It Overflows”, “Stand on the Papers in the Garbage Can to Make It Go Down”, and “Oh, There It Is!”  What a great time of year!

Freedom Walk

The Spanish Fork American Legion Post 68 hosted the second annual Freedom Walk at the Spanish Fork Sports Park on May 8 and 9. Members from each of the branches of the military were represented and told stories to nearly 1,250 fifth-graders from 13 schools during the two-day event.

Prior to the walk, each student either interviewed or researched a veteran and wrote a summary of what they learned. One-page summaries and photos of these veterans, many of which are family members, were attached to banners, creating a Wall of Honor which lined the walking route.

During the event, students completed a walk around the park, symbolic of walking in the shoes of the veteran they interviewed or researched. Along the walk were seven stations where Legion members would tell stories and even show items from their service. One student designed a shirt that was worn by all students which read, “We didn’t know them all, but we owe them all.”

Last year’s Freedom Walk was the first, and was conceived by Legion member Richard Johnson as a way to help the youth have a better understanding and appreciation for military veterans. According to Legion members, the walk is unlike any other event organized by the Legion.

“This event allows us to help the kids have a better understanding of and appreciation for the Flag and the sacrifices made by everyone who has served in the military,” said Legion Member Wayne Anderson.

The students in Mrs. Makin's class really tore things apart! They dissected owl pellets and discovered the not so happy endings to some birds and rodents. They had gross fun picking through the pellets to find bones, teeth and other things.  One group found a full skull of an unfortunate critter.

We Inspire: Final Victory Assembly

Cherry Creek Elementary News - Tue, 05/15/2018 - 10:35am

Last Friday we held the final victory assembly of the year--and there was much to celebrate! The students learned that they far surpassed their school-wide WIG (wildly important goal) of moving up 1,800 reading levels. In fact, they moved up over 2,100 reading levels this year! That earns them a water party (for K-2nd) or a trip to the new Springville rec center pool (3rd-6th).

One very special announcement that was made is that Mr. Duncan was awarded as Principal of the Year for Nebo School District by Horace Mann. This is such a great honor, and we know that Mr. Duncan deserves every recognition for amazing impact he has here at Cherry Creek. So we sprayed silly string on him. 

During the assembly, we also enjoyed another performance of Cherry Creek's Got Talent! Zack Fernandez and the Lovelace brothers each shared unique and challenging talents. Then we watched a slideshow of the teachers that will be leaving Cherry Creek at the end of the year. Those leaving include Mrs. Call, Ms. Brice, Mr. Cornwall, Mrs. Crowley, Mrs. Maloy (lunch coordinator), Mrs. Johnson (lunch technician), and Mrs. Pratt (Title 1). These teachers joined the Top Crocs and Leaders of the Month in the final victory lap of the year.

We are so proud of all that our students have accomplished this year!

We Learn: Pre-teaching model in 6th grade

Cherry Creek Elementary News - Tue, 05/15/2018 - 10:26am
Attributions: by Katelyn Finch

This year, Mrs. Finch's 6th grade students have been trying something a little different. We have started something called Pre-Teaching. The way it works is that the students will learn a new lesson for the first time in my class 2-3 days before they learn the same lesson in their regular class. I introduce the material, they form different ideas on the material, and within that time we try to solidify the concept as much as we can. By the time they learn that same lesson in their regular class they have had time to really understand the lesson already.  When I asked the students how they felt about the Pre-teaching model, I was blown away. Here are their responses. 

"It’s easier."

"It’s not as hard and you can actually keep up with your classmates."

 

"You can understand it much easier."

 

"There’s not as many people in Mrs. Finch's room which helps."

 

"It helps because I’m kind of slow at getting the concepts so when you have more time to learn, it is easier to know what the class is doing."

 

"When you have enough time to learn it, you know what the class is doing rather than spending so much time thinking."

 

"I wish we had this method in Jr. High."

 

"There are too many distractions in the regular classroom."

 

"Everyone got volume but not surface area until I saved the day."

 

 

"One of the girls told her other classmates, "see you should go to my class". (Mrs. Finch's class)"

 

 

"It makes me want to do it more."

 

"It’s easier if we come in here and learn it first. We know the stuff that we need to learn and when the teacher teaches it to us we know what to do with the math."

 

"I feel better."

 

"This class is easier and you know how to do it before we learn it."

  This has been so successful because of the collaboration that has taken  place between the 6th grade teachers and I and also because the students are willing to come to class and put forth their best effort
