Welcome to Cherry Drive Elementary

SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER

September 1, 2014

Dear Cherry Drive Families,

We’re off to an amazing start! Thank you so much for attending our Meet the Teacher Night, it was a huge success! It was wonderful getting to meet and see all of you again. Our staff is eager to support all of your child’s needs. As our school year begins, I want to remind you that each of our staff members have voice mail and email addresses at school. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or celebrations. We are here to support you and your children.

Since our enrollment has exceeded initial predictions, we are fortunate enough that we are able to hire a new 2nd Grade teacher! Please join me in welcoming Ms. Marissa Selva to our Cherry Drive family!

Please know that our IT department is working diligently to ensure that all iPads will be working at home. They are continuing to resolve the issues and it should be up and running very soon.

Please join us on September 18, 2014, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. for our Learning Cafe. This is going to be an exciting evening for our parents to enjoy information about their child’s day at Cherry Drive Elementary. All parents and students will go to their child’s classrooms to learn about state standards as well as homework tips. It will be a super evening!

Our Annual Wellness Adventure is coming soon and will be taking place on October 31, 2014. Time and schedules are currently being determined and will be coming to you soon! This will also be the day of our Fun Run Fundraiser!

I am also very excited to share that the 2014 Best of The Best- Community Guide Magazine voted Cherry Drive the best teacher/school! We are beyond thrilled by this amazing acknowledgment! We were also in the Denver Post recently in an article regarding use of digital devices in the classroom!
