The staff and students of Cherokee Elementary are excited and working hard in the second semester of the 2017-2018 school year.
We are proud to announce that the Robotics and Archery teams have both qualified for State Competition. The Brave Bots and the Kee Bots qualified for the state competition in Norman in mid-February. The Archery Team will compete in Tulsa in late February. We are so proud of our Cherokee Braves and wish them the best of luck.
Thanks to the Cherokee PTO for the countless hours that have been spent planning events, raising funds and volunteering. Cherokee has had a very successful fundraising year and our students and teachers have benefited greatly. PTO paid for field trips and transportation costs, furniture for 4th grade classrooms, classroom supplies and technology, and the list goes on and on. The students and staff of Cherokee Elementary appreciate all the hard work and dedication of the PTO this year.
Cherokee Elementary teachers, students and families will help support the Oklahoma Special Olympics by participating in the Polar Plunge at Arrowhead Resort in Early March.
Spring is right around the corner, and that means testing is quickly approaching. 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will be taking the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests in April. School wide, the students are working hard to prepare for this opportunity to showcase their knowledge. Our teachers have used test data from Formative Assessments, Unit Assessments, Literacy First Assessments and last year’s test data to differentiate instruction for every student. It is crucial for your child to be at school on time every day in order for them to truly benefit from the enriched lessons their teachers have prepared for them. Students will continue to learn new skills daily and begin to review skills that have been taught. Please encourage your child to talk about what they are learning at school and help them check their homework nightly.
As you can see, the students and staff have been very busy the second semester of school and are looking forward to a completing another successful year. We are proud of our students and staff at Cherokee Elementary and will take every opportunity to show off their talents. Like us on Facebook and see more incredible things about Cherokee Elementary.
