We Lead: Cherry Creek Achieves Lighthouse Status

Last week, Franklin Covey designated Cherry Creek Elementary as the newest Lighthouse School! Among thousands of schools world-wide that implement The Leader in Me program, only around 380 schools have received this honor. We could not be more proud of this achievement!

For the last four years, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members have worked to teach the 7 Habits and leadership principles to our students. Numberless people and hours have been contributed to shaping Cherry Creek into an incredible school. In order to achieve Lighthouse status, a school must demonstrate "mature" and "excellent" methods of implementing leadership principles. Although this is a great measure of our success, we will continue to grow and find better ways to practice leadership principles.

To celebrate reaching this milestone, Cherry Creek will host a family and community celebration on Monday, May 7th. The event will include an award ceremony, food, and entertainment. More details coming soon, but put it on your calendar, as it will be an event not to be missed!

We Inspire: Penny Wars for Grandma Long

Tue, 04/10/2018 - 11:38am

Beginning today through April 18th, the Student Lighthouse Team is sponsoring this year's Penny Wars to benefit Grandma Long. Grandma Long has volunteered in our kindergarten classrooms for the past 12 years, and has blessed so many students and teachers with her kindness and help. Here's how the penny wars will work:

Each grade level has a jar in the office. Pennies and cash count for "positive" points. (Penny = one point, $1 = 100 points). Silver coins count as "negative" points when placed in other grade levels' jars. At the end of the day on April 18th, each grade's points will be counted. The grade level with the most points will earn a donut party. If the whole school collects more than $1,000, the whole school will earn an extra recess to celebrate. 

Thank you for your generosity on behalf of our Cherry Creek family!

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!

We Lead: Begin With the End in Mind for Friday Fun Day

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!

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.

This year students from Springville High School are coming to our school and teaching 5th graders about robots and programming them. The students are programming finches, or little robots, to do things like move forward and backward and even spin. It is a really cool experience to learn how to do all of these cool things. They help all of the kids to learn how to make the robot move and talk. This is helping us learn and it is an amazing experience for these students. The high school students are helping our program. It is super fun.

We do our best to spread kindness and inspire friendship. Whenever someone in our class has a birthday, they sit at the front of the room while everyone comes up to the smart board to write something kind about them. It's a great way to lift each other up--especially on someone's birthday!

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents, and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools. A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday February 7th and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21st, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.

For the past several days, Mr. Duncan has been in Philadelphia, PA to attend the National Title 1 Conference. This conference aims to support educators working in Title 1 schools to improve instruction, family engagement, and cultural understanding. Mr. Duncan has told us that whenever he attends these conferences, he is reminded of how lucky we are to work, teach, and live in Nebo School District. He says, "Nebo really is a very solid district with tremendous leadership at the top and dedicated educators throughout." 

Mr. Duncan has also had a chance to visit historical sites in Philadelphia, including Independence Hall, where the U.S. Constitution was signed. 

We can't wait to have you back, Mr. Duncan!

You'd think the students had put the teachers out of a job! They help fill so many responsibilities both in their classrooms and around the school. Every student has the chance to contribute to how Cherry Creek operates day in and day out, and they do such great work! Some jobs include morning announcements, setting up for assemblies, leading lines quietly down the hall, time keepers, cleaners, delivering office notes, conducting morning lead time, keeping computers charged, and passing out papers. The jobs are endless! Even helping with small tasks helps these kids feel empowered, important, and that they have a chance to lead their peers.
