    First Grade Art

    Students will finish up their colored pencil coloring technique unit through a "How to Draw" unit. This is an excellent springboard to their Second Grade Art with Mrs. Peterson and her art studio expectations. 

    First Grade Music 

    Our concert was a fun way to celebrate the end of our music year.  I was so proud of my First Grade Singers and will miss their voices. 
    I am sad to see them go, but they are in excellent hands with Mrs. Glosup. They will be learning so much more and I am excited to see them grow in their music skills over their CCA years.  


    First Grade PE 

    We are finished with PE for the year...it has been a super fun year and they are well prepared for Ms. Rutz's amazing PE program. 


    It's been an amazing year with your child and you will be missed. Thank you for the fun memories.

    Mrs. MacFarland

    May 23 - 27, 2022

    Happy May!  I can't believe that we are in the final month of the school year! I am looking forward to all of our wonderful end of school year events.  As always feel free to email me with any questions at slanyi@cherrycreekacademy.org



    I can't believe this is the last week of the school year! This week we will be having some fun in the library.  Please look in the Eagle for some wonderful summer reading resources. Remember all library books were due on Friday, May 20th.  If books are lost they need to be paid for or replaced.  You may send cash or a check made out to CCA, or pay on the CCA website.  Please contact me with any questions. 




    I am so excited about the last couple weeks of technology class this year.  We will be finishing up our Google Slides projects.  The students will also be taking their final typing test of the year.  We are also going to be visiting Ms. Wong's computer lab this week and next week.  The students will get to meet Ms. Wong, who will be their technology teacher next year and will also get to see the new Mac computers they will be using next year.
