A Message from our Principal

Welcome to Cherokee Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year. I'm looking forward to another super year of learning. We are currently serving a student population of 399 students in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. Cherokee continues to qualify as a school-wide Title I project and we use those funds to supplement our instructional program. To stay informed of all the guidelines we use to keep Cherokee running smoothly, please read our Parent Handbook carefully. Our wish is safety and fairness for everyone and we strive for your trust and respect
