      Principal loses Cancer Battle

      Former Principal of Cherry Creek Elementary School Tamara Bott passed away earlier this week after losing her battle with cancer. The school had started a fundraiser for Bott who was know for her high heels called Heels for Healing. Heels for Healing raised nearly $5,000 for the Bott family to cover medical expenses. Friends and colleagues at the school will miss their beloved principal.

      "Its a huge loss,she was a friend a mentor someone I could joke with as we work through issues here at the school through our parent group," President of the Cherry Creek School Association Jim Mackey said. "She's going to be incredibly missed throughout the whole district especially here at Cherry Creek."

      The memorial service for Bott will be held at the First United Methodist Church at noon on Thursday.
