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.

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.

Financial Lessons

In addition to ongoing character education that includes lessons in generosity and benevolence, students at Cherry Lane are also learning financial literacy. With the support of the school’s PTA, students had the opportunity to shop for holiday gifts for the special people in their lives. Parent volunteers assisted students as they selected the perfect gifts for their loved ones.
