In addition to a strong and comprehensive curriculum, the Dry Creek staff provides additional activities to meet the needs and interests of our students. These activities are important to positively link students to school and school culture.

 

The sign up for an after school STEM/programming club will be coming in 2018

This is a club to extend what we have already worked on in the STEM class.

Music Classes Offered
  • Choir

CCEIM is Cherry Creek's band and orchestra program open to 3rd through 5th graders at the elementary school level. This is a great opportunity for our students  to get a head start playing an instrument. We only need 10 students to start a class at Dry Creek.  Please visit here for more information about Cherry Creek's band and orchestra program​.

 

 

Destination Imagination
 

Destination Imagination (DI) is a creative problem-solving after-school program for students in kindergarten through college.  DI teaches problem-solving strategies, teamwork and creativity.  Teams must brainstorm their solutions to one of five challenges, then build and present them on their own - with no outside help.  In the five months of time that they work on their challenge, team members create their solution, write scripts, compose music, make props, design scenery, and make costumes.  A team consists of up to seven members managed by one or two team managers (parent volunteers).

 

There are two levels in which teams can present their solutions.  The primary level is for students in kindergarten through second grade.  These teams simply present their solutions and are given constructive feedback, without competing for a rank score.  Students in third through fifth grade compete in the elementary level.  In March, these teams compete against other teams in the district.  Winners at the district level continue to the State Competition, and if successful, may continue to the World Competition. 

 

DI is open to all students who wish to participate.​

 

 
 
 
Super Saturday
 

Super Saturday is a periodic, two-hour hands-on focus on a particular topic in Creative Problem Solving, Math, Science or World Cultures.  There are usually two sessions, one for K-2nd and one for 3-5th grades.  Super Saturdays are presented by Dry Creek teachers and/or community volunteers.


 

 
Student Council
 

Each classroom in grades two through five elects two representatives to the Student Council.  The Council sponsors several community service projects throughout the year such as the Salvation Army Canned Food Drive, Quarters for Kids, Coins for Critters for the Dumb Friends League, and playground clean up.  Meetings are once a month on Tuesday mornings.  Student Council is a great opportunity for students to get involved at Dry Creek!

Students also have the opportunity to join in on many external clubs and activities that take place on Dry Creek Property and are offered to our students.  These include, but are not limited to:

Tai Kwon Do
Science Matters
Kids' Stage
Girl Scouts
