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

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

Hello, Brockbank Families!

We want to thank our PTA for our awesome carnival!  It was so much fun and the children  really enjoyed it!  A special thanks goes to  Sharlene Hales, Brenda Dudley, and all of the wonderful PTA Volunteers, for all of their hard work!

We also want to thank the PTA for the great Book Fair they put on!  Thanks to Julie Evans and Kara Cloward!  It was a great success!

Swimming Activity:  We will be going swimming on the last day of school.  We will be leaving Brockbank at about 9:00 and we will walk to Spanish Fork Swimming Pool.  Our Busing students will leave the pool at about 11:10 and will walk back to Brockbank, eat their lunches, then board the buses at about 11:30-11:40.  Our walking students will leave the pool at about 11:15, walk to the school, eat their lunches, then leave at noon.  We will be sending a permission note home for you to send back to school.  Please watch for that and return asap. 

We also want to let you know that unfortunately we will not be able to have summer school this summer!  Our school is undergoing a lot of updating and changing and we will be without power for a short period of time.  There will also be many workers here and with all the construction, we will not be able to have students here.  We are so sorry for the inconvenience.  However, Angie Killian, the principal at Riverview Elementary School, has offered to have our students go to their summer school if you are interested.  For more information, please call Riverview Elementary.
