 What We Did in Advisory on October 7

All grade levels prepared for College Readiness Day on October 21.
Freshmen and sophomores looked at some sample test questions and discussed test-taking strategies for the online ACT Aspire Test.  Juniors tried some sample ACT questions. They will need to bring pencils, calculator, and photo ID to the test.
Seniors received their senior packets from counselors. This is important information for the college application process. Parents, ask to see this packet — it's very informative.

Every Wednesday is College Wear Wednesday, where students and staff wear college gear. Check out the posts on Twitter @OHS_PostGrad #CollegeBoundBlazer

 District Announcements

  • Don’t let myths about the flu shot prevent you from staying healthy this winter

    ​It is important to get a flu shot now and many doctor's offices and pharmacies have vaccine in stock. It takes about two weeks after being vaccinated for your body to develop a protective immune response against flu. However, it's never too late to get vaccinated as long as flu is in the community, even in January or later. Flu season can start as early as October and run as late as May each year. And because the flu virus often changes every year, it's important to get a new flu shot each year. Read an article from the Tri-County Health Department for more information.

    Prevention is the best defense against the flu and other contagious illnesses. Wash your hands frequently, don't share eating utensils or drinking glasses, keep your hands to yourself, and stay home if you are sick to avoid spreading the flu. Let's all stay healthy this season!

  • ​​2015 Health Kids Colorado Survey

    ​Cherry Creek School District has been selected to participate in the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey this fall. The results will help with planning programs and services for youth, as well as evaluating current programs. This anonymous survey will ask students about various health topics, including: physical activity, nutrition, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, mental health and suicide, bullying and other forms of violence, health care, and sexual behaviors (high school only). The survey also asks students about school engagement, school climate, youth-adult connectedness, and other protective factors known to be associated with healthy behaviors. If you would like to view a copy of the survey, it can be accessed at

    If your child is in one of the schools or classrooms selected to participate, you will be mailed a parent letter this fall.  You may choose to opt your child out from participating in the survey by returning the form to the school.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Amy Plog, Research and Data Coordinator for Cherry Creek Schools at (720)554-4289.
