Last week in Mrs. Gast's class, Dr. Candi Bown, our district's amazing audiologist, and Naomi Whiting gave a hands-on presentation about how hearing aids work. Naomi shared her experience with wearing hearing aids and how it helps her in class. Students were able to have a turn to listen for themselves how hearing aids amplify sound. We loved learning about Naomi's ability to hear clearly with such wonderful technology!

The first victory assembly of the year was held this Wednesday. As is our tradition at Cherry Creek, it all started with a "victory lap" of the Leaders of the Month and Top Croc Award students--and, of course--Crocky!

During the assembly, we celebrated those students who earned awards and those who received croc cards. The WIG student leaders gave us an update on how we're doing with our attendance goal. So far this year, 85% of students have been on time 9 out of every 10 days. That's so close to our goal of 90% of students being on time every 9/10 days. Parents, help our kids get to school on time so they can start off the day ready to learn. Thanks for your effort and support with this goal!

A few brave teachers introduced the "Cherry Creek's Got Talent" opportunity to try out for a performance slot on Leadership Day. They showed their dancing talent, and got everyone involved and excited to show their talents.

One last special highlight of the assembly was having guests from KSL News Radio and Zion's Bank in Salt Lake City come to award Mrs. Golding with the Teacher Feature this week for all of Utah.

This week the sixth grade kids went on a field trip to STEM Fest, an annual event held to encourage kids to be interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The sixth graders walked around the exhibit halls at the South Towne Expo Center and explored booths where they were able to participate in STEM activities. They played with robots, learned about CPR, felt electrical current travel, demo-ed computer programs, and tried virtual reality. With STEM careers being so prevalent today and in the future, it was great for kids to see applications of what they learn in school!

"Brookside Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Brookside will be working with Dance Integration this school year.  3rd grade students used dance and movement to represent the characteristics of all LIVING THINGS.  4th grade students used white scarves to represent water droplets and moved their way through the different parts of the WATER CYCLE.5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students used mirroring and flocking movements to emphasize the important qualities of RESPECT, COOPERATION, and TEAM WORK.

The Special Needs unit danced as well, using props such as scarves and giant elastic bands to enhance their dance ideas.

Dance is a great way to make learning fun and to help students remember concepts more deeply."
