On display is some school spirit and support for Power Week 2019
SUBMITTED BY CCSD
The power of a caring community was perfectly evident during Power Week at Cherry Creek High School, held Feb. 4-8. For the third year in a row, CCHS students, staff, families and community members came together in a big way to support the Gabby Krause Foundation and its Bags of Fun program. Gabby was an amazing 6-year old who died in September 2004 after a courageous 19-month battle with brain cancer. Her wish was that every child who had to spend time at a hospital battling serious illness or injury could have a bag filled with books, toys, games and other activities to enjoy.
Led by the CCHS Student Senate and supported by feature sponsor Royce Zimmerman and Associates, a local financial planning firm, the school raised more than $26,000 for the Bags of Fun program, far surpassing its ambitious goal of $20,000. That was accomplished through a variety of fun, fundraising events, including:
NHS Brain Bowl – a trivia contest sponsored by the National Honor Society, where teams of four people were asked various questions. Both student and faculty teams competed against each other.
Mr. Creek Contest – 10 junior and senior boys competed in a talent, karaoke and interview contest to earn the coveted title of Mr. Creek. Congratulations to the winner, senior Mick Hashimoto.
CCHS Talent Show: Over 26 different acts performed including vocalists, musicians, comedians, Bollywood dancers and poets.
Cherry Creek High School thanks everyone who supported Power Week, including students at Belleview and Cottonwood Creek Elementary Schools who raised money for the cause by holding penny war competitions in their classrooms, and local restaurants, including Chipotle, Glacier Ice Cream and Slices Pizza, which donated a portion of their sales during Power Week.
