 On Thursday, August 15, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., Cherryvale Elementary School teachers and staff will sponsor a “Back to School” orientation extravaganza for students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth. During this session, parents will receive back to school information, get class assignments, review Parent Portal requirements, and meet staff members.

At Cherryvale Elementary, student uniforms are mandatory. Students must wear pants, skirts, or shorts that are navy blue or khaki. They must also wear collared shirts, blouses, or sweaters that are white, light blue, or navy. They are free to wear Cherryvale t-shirts and sweatshirts at any time. These garments are available to order at the beginning of the school year and several times during the year.

To assist students in the areas of reading and mathematics, extended school day opportunities begin daily at 6:50 a.m. In addition, the food service staff serves breakfast from 6:50 a.m. until 7:25 a.m. Breakfast and lunch meals are free for all students. In order to participate, students must arrive on time because the end time for breakfast participation is 7:25 a.m.

Tuesday, August 20, is the first day of school for students in grades K-5.  Information regarding pre-kindergarten will be discussed at orientation.

Drop-off and pick-up procedures for students who are car riders are the same. During morning hours, parents must drop off car riders at the front entrance of the building. During afternoon hours, they must pick up students at the back of the building. The school building opens daily at 6:50 a.m. to welcome students.

Cherryvale Elementary is a fourth year ABC Site School and a STEAM focused school. Therefore, teachers and staff look forward to expanding the arts and increasing STEM integration through collaboration. In addition, staff members are ready to continue the implementation of the third initiative–Leader In Me, which focuses on staff and student leadership qualities. Administrators, teachers and staff invite families, stakeholders, and community members to visit the school and invest in our future—invest in students!
