School of Choice UPDATE...

Cherry Creek School District is implementing a NEW School Choice application system and updated policies. The new application system will be used for all choice applications, including Non-Resident and Intra-District Transfer requests. Parents will be able to submit a School Choice application for the 2023-2024 school year starting January 1, 2023. This date applies for residents and non-residents of the school district and the first lottery run in early February for district residents, non-resident employees’ children and for students that are currently enrolled as a non-resident or on a 1 year Intra-District transfer. All other applications will be included in bi-weekly lottery runs starting in February. Students who are accepted to a choice school will be accepted to the highest grade level at that school provided they meet the continued enrollment criteria. Additional details about School Choice and the continued enrollment criteria can be found in the School Choice Transfers section of the Admissions website:

Have a great day,

There is so much great learning happening in our STEM lab! Check out the STEM website to see what each grade level has been up to.

Mrs. Jen Sevy

Just in time for the Super Bowl, 1st – 5th graders are wrapping up our Football unit! If a quarterback or receiver goes down in the Big Game, your student is ready to step in! 😊 Students worked hard on throwing/passing and catching/receiving. We played a variety of games to work on perfecting these skills.

Our next unit will be volleyball! The focus will be passing, but older students will work on all skills volleyball!

Our Kindergartners are wrapping up all of our “tag” type games, focusing on spatial awareness and body control. As one parent mentioned, “How many variations of tag do you have?” We have a lot! 😊 Kindergartners will now be working on different types of movement as well as proper throwing form and even catching!

Believe it or not, we are nearing the end of Intramurals for our 4th and 5th grade students. If your child is in Intramurals, please pay attention to the dates! If you need another copy of the dates, please let me know.

With the end of Intramurals nearing, that means SPRING RUNNER’S CLUB! -Provided we can ever get the snow to melt and the field to dry out, we will run again! I’ll send out more information on that in March!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The current cold and flu season has an increased number of respiratory illnesses. See below how you can continue to do your part to help minimize exposure and spread:

· Keep your student/s home when sick (coughing, frequent sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, etc.)

· Continue to encourage good hand washing habits.

· Sneeze and cough into your elbow instead of your hand

· Keep your students up to date on immunizations; especially Flu (influenza) and COVID-19 vaccines.

· Reach out to your student’s health care provider for any specific concerns or questions.

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your help in keeping us all healthy and safe!
