Cool Cardinal Assemblies

Creekside's Cardinal Committee was formed this year to promote school spirit and enhance our sense of community.  Their first activity for the year was to produce two back-to-school assemblies.

These assemblies feature the teachers performing skits to teach our Cardinal rules:
1.  Be prepared.
2.  Be respectful.
3.  Be responsible.
4.  Be a learner.
The skits included examples and non-examples to help students understand the rules.

The assemblies also highlighted our school affirmation:

At the end of the assemblies, students were given red sunglasses to show that they are all Cool Cardinals!

Check out the video to see our teachers moonlighting as actors!
