    Genius Hour

    • Friday mornings at Cottonwood Creek Elementary (CCE) are anything but what you might think a typical morning of school would look like.  However, the learners at Cottonwood Creek Elementary are anything but typical. The learners at CCE are leaders and on Friday mornings, these leaders are given one hour to explore their passions – free from the constraints of only working with their grade level, working within a core subject, or completing work their educator has given them.  More>>

      Leadership Book


      Young Spoon comes from a loving family of related cutlery: teaspoons, ladles, and slotted spoons. (His great grandmother was that famous spoon that ran away with the dish.) But Spoon begins to feel jealous of his silverware friends, envying their talents and abilities. Knife can cut and spread peanut butter. Fork is so versatile, and those chopsticks are “cool”. Spoon doesn’t realize that Fork, Knife and Chopsticks are all actually envious of him. Spoon’s mother helps him see things in a new way, though! (How fortunate he is to be able to dig into a bowl of ice cream!) With a renewed outlook, Spoon’s perspective changes, and he can see just how lucky he is to be himself. In this tender picture book filled with illustrations brimming with joyful personality, Amy Krouse Rosenthal shows young readers the magic of being you!
