Congratulations to Mrs. Hepp!!

Dear Cherry Drive Families,

I’m writing to you to share and important update. After much deliberation, I have officially decided to retire from Adams 12 Five Star Schools from my position as Principal at Cherry Drive Elementary at the end of this school year. This was a very difficult decision for me as Cherry Drive is my home and everyone inside of it, my family. However, I am also very excited for my journey ahead and getting to spend a lot more time with my husband and kids. 

It has certainly been an amazing ride throughout these past 11 years as your principal. We have achieved such great heights and become one of the most innovative schools, enhancing the education of every student that came through the doors of Cherry Drive. When my last day finally arrives and I walk out of my beloved school, I will look back with such pride on what we as a Cherry Drive family have accomplished.

I would like to thank you for the opportunity you’ve given me to work with your children during my tenure. It was an honor to work alongside such an amazing staff, wonderful students, and a warm and caring community. I’ve always felt extremely lucky to have been an educator and an instructional leader. It’s a job that brings you so much purpose and meaning. I want to thank everyone who contributed to my amazing career in Adams 12 for the past 30 YEARS!

You may have seen that the district has posted my position for next year. They will be in touch and give you all a chance to contribute to the selection process for your new leader later this Spring.

My warmest regards,

Mrs. Tina Hepp

Principal
