Cherry Creek's second year of math instruction training (CMI) is well underway! Every other Monday afternoon, teachers participate in lessons and activities to improve math instruction and learning in their classrooms. Today's lesson involved teachers instructing teachers in other grade levels on how to complete various problems using specific strategies. The goal is to achieve improved conceptualization and understanding of math calculations and real life problems. Our teachers do so much to provide the best possible education for our students. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

Our fifth grade classes have begun a presentation series led by students who have researched a topic of interest. After they find interesting information on their topic and put together a presentation to demonstrate their knowledge, then they can present during "Genius Hour". Topics so far have included illustration techniques, how airplanes fly, foreign languages (Polish!), sports, and more! It's inspiring to see the kids do research to learn about something they are excited about!

Last week, fourth grade students were able to take yet another field trip to the BYU Bean Museum. They were able to see animals in their environments and learn about different adaptations. The Museum of Peoples and Cultures was also a part of the field trip and the students' favorite part was the arrowhead they got to find and take home!

Today was the first day that Cherry Creek welcomed the Latinos In Action students from Springville Junior High, under the supervision of Mr. Glen Beebe. This group of Spanish speaking students will come once a week for a half hour to help our students with reading or math, regardless of whether our students speak Spanish or English. The Latinos In Action group set such a good example to our students of helping one another and working hard even when learning a second language. Thanks for your service!

Since we only get to do this once a year we had to have a little fun for NSLW! It was a fun week. Thanks to Elizabeth for the apple samples and BYU student visitors. With our Top School Lunch Chef recipe winners we were able to give out donated meal certificates. Its a recipe worth trying out! And thanks to the district for the bike. Our lucky regular school lunch eater, Alexis, was very happy and excited to take home her new bike!!

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.

In addition to receiving a plaque and gift certificates, KSL will interview Mrs. Golding to air on an upcoming radio segment. We are so lucky to have fabulous and dedicated teachers like Mrs. Golding at Cherry Creek. Congratulations!

Last month 4th graders had the opportunity to go to the Natural History Museum at Thanksgiving Point. Students were able to check out lots of dionosaur bones and interesting displays. They even had a chance to do some digging of their own!
