Welcome Back Cherokee Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. It is truly an honor for me to be the Principal of Cherokee Elementary School. I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff and families.

We have school pride and high expectations for each and every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our motto reads “At Cherokee, every student matters and every moment counts” and this will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful school environment.

We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our school website for important updates and information regarding Cherokee Elementary.

Again, I thank you and look forward to a great school year at Cherokee Elementary with students’ success and family involvement at the forefront of all our endeavors.


Warm Regards,
