Welcome to Cherry Lane School

 

Cherry Lane Mission Statement

As a primary school, we seek to impart a respect for the world, a body of academic information, a mastery of basic skills and a joy in learning so that growth continues beyond the school day and beyond the school years.

Since we want our pupils to develop and expand their innate intellectual, physical and creative abilities, we also assist them in acquiring the sense of self-worth and the self-discipline necessary for such an accomplishment.

Furthermore, since our school is a reflection of the community and the country as a whole, we constantly evaluate our curriculum to make certain that they reflect changing needs.

Finally, we seek to provide programs for all students on all levels of the educational spectrum.

Celebrating Seuss the Cherry Way

Cherry Students with Dr. Seuss Hats on
Students at Cherry Lane celebrated National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2 by participating in a variety of fun and educational activities.

First-graders rehearsed Dr. Seuss-themed Reader’s Theater scripts and performed them for each classroom in the school, and each class created their own Dr. Seuss hat. Students also brought in their favorites books, and second-graders led the school on a parade around the school to music from the “Seussical” musical. All students also took a Reader’s Oath and participated in a silent readathon.

The festivities were designed to promote the importance of reading and to celebrate the life and legacy of an iconic children’s author.

Lunar Lessons

Lunar Lessons1

Kindergartners at Cherry Lane learned about the Lunar New Year as part of their social studies curriculum. In class, students learned about the various colors and symbols as they pertain to the holiday, read books and made comparisons to other holidays. In addition, all classes took part in art extensions — such as lanterns or musical instruments — which were used in the culminating Lunar New Year Parade throughout the school.
