    Have a Wonderful Summer Break!


    Readiness Packet

    Make sure you feel ready for 3rd grade by going over our 3rd grade readiness packet!   Here are 2 important skills to have before entering 3rd grade: 

    • Know all of your multiplication facts (0-12)
    • Have your reading stamina built to 30 minutes - with any book that you LOVE reading 


    School Supplies

    Order school supplies before our back to school night so you feel ready and prepared!  We will spend that evening organizing our supplies and ensuring that you have everything you need to be successful. 

    We hope you have a safe, fun, and relaxing summer!  We look forward to seeing you in August ☀️✏️

    Art Studio News

    3rd Grade

    What an incredible night last Thursday!  The art was beautiful and the singing and instruments were lovely.  What a wonderful culmination for our arts program!  I hope that everyone loves the artwork coming home this week and that our CCA families enjoy summer break.   Our 8th graders will be greatly missed but sure to find success ahead.  Everyone else, I look forward to seeing you all next year!




Library - Mrs. Lanyi


    May 22 - 26, 2023

    I can' t believe the end of the school year has arrived! I have really enjoyed working with 3rd graders this year and can't wait to see everyone again in 4th grade.  All library books are due. If books have been lost, they will need to be paid for, you may submit cash, a check made out to CCA, or you may pay on RevTrak - click on the lost library book tab. Please feel free to email me with any questions at slanyi@cherrycreekacademy.org

    This week we will listen to our final read aloud of the year and will talk about summer reading opportunities.  The students will have the chance to play the board games and use the STEM materials.  I hope that you all have a wonderful summer!

Music - Mrs. Glosup

  • In May, the 3rd grade music class will learn about 2 last composers.  First up is Copland, and his words “Fanfare for a Common Man”, “Rodeo”, and “Simple Gifts”.  The last composer of the year is Rimsky-Korsikov and his music “Scheherazade”. 3rd grade is continuing our work with recorders!  Students have been showing their success with the recorder by proceeding through belt tests with recorder karate!  Working with recorders allows us to learn music notation in a practical way.


    We are looking forward to our Spring Music Festival!  We will have 2 separate programs that evening, dividing the K-1st grade from the 2nd - 8th grade. This is to ensure we respect the time of parents and students.  This document has the information that you will need to know about this event!

PE - Ms. Corcoran


    3rd grade PE is beginning for Ms. Truitts and Ms.Doyle's  classes!! We will be meeting in person 2-3 times per week. The first two days will be knowledge content days and the third day rotation (Fridays) will be FUN Fridays. This is a non-content game day. 

    With cold weather, come extra clothing items. Please make sure on PE days your child is ready to be active with tennis shoes/ active seekers, and a water bottle. 

    Your child's class will be structured as follows: Warm up activity/ games, knowledge content, cool down activity, clean up/ sanitation/ hand washing.  Please see the PE Curriculum Map on my teacher's webpage for the weekly rotation. 

    April/ May is as follows: 

    • Frisbee
    • Football
    • Soccer
    • Basketball

    This will help each of you begin to learn:

    • Responsibilities and Routines
    • Acceptance and super grouping
    • Trust and Technology
    • Appreciation and Assistance through movement. 

    Be ready to bring your personal water bottle to PE every class period!
