Welcome to Kindergarten!!

I enjoyed welcoming all of our KG students on their first day! We read "The Kissing Hand" by: Audrey Penn, and made sure everyone was feeling welcome and excited about starting school!

Cardinal Character Assembly

Students attended a character assembly by grade level during the first couple weeks of school to review and share examples of the 6 pillars of character. Students also reviewed behavior expectations and got excited about some of the fun rewards through our character education program!

Meet CCE's new Character Monster!!

Introducing... ???


Students and teachers have been working hard to brainstorm creative names for our new friend! After the first round of voting, the top 5 names selected were: 1. Fred, 2. Bob, 3. Blue, 4. Auggie, and 5. Creek. Final classroom votes are taking place this week!!


This blue monster will be helping with our character program... taking pictures with students displaying good character throughout the day, passing out cardinal bucks, participating in our character ceremonies, etc. Check out the pictures below of students already caught on camera!!

CARING CARDINALS

An excellent group of student leaders from all grade levels has started meeting and working together to come up with ideas to ensure that our students, staff members and families feel the CCE love this year! We have already started "throwing KINDNESS like CONFETTI" around our school and have lots of projects and culture building planned for the year!! I am so proud of this group already!

Cardinal of the Month

Cunningham Creek students in grades K-5 will participate in a “Cardinal of the Month” character reward program.


Each month, teachers will nominate students based on positive behavior and consistent demonstration of the six pillars of character. Selected students will be invited to celebrate with their families at a “Cardinal of the Month” ceremony, where they will receive certificates, pencils, coupons, etc., to recognize their achievements.
