On Thursday, August 16, from 4-6 PM, 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. Students must wear collared shirts, blouses, or sweaters that are white, light blue, or navy. Students are free to wear Cherryvale t-shirts and sweatshirts—at any time.
To assist students in the areas of reading and mathematics, extended school day opportunities begin daily at 6:50 a.m. Each morning, the food service staff serves breakfast from 6:50 a.m. until 7:25 a.m. In order to participate in the breakfast program, students must arrive on time, because the end time for breakfast participation is 7:25 a.m.
Monday, August 20, is the first day of school for students in grades K-5. Wednesday, August 22, is the first day of school for preschool students.
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, and during afternoon hours, they must pick up students at the back entrance of the building. The school building opens daily at 6:50 a.m. to welcome students.
Cherryvale Elementary School has great plans and expectations for the new year! As an ABC Site School, teachers and staff will implement “Leader In Me” and STEM strategies and activities. Administrators, teachers and staff look forward to working closely with families, stakeholders, and community members in order to make the 2018-2019 school year an exceptional school year!
