The Ohio Department of Education recently selected Cherokee Elementary as a 2022 Purple Star school for its outstanding commitment to serving military-connected students and families.
Families that left the recent ESL Connect evening at Cherokee Elementary really felt like partners in their student’s education. For most of the families, technology and language barriers had kept them from being able to view their student’s grades and assignments, check on their nutrition account, or to be able to read communications from the district in their language of preference.
Cherokee students at every grade level participated in a special art project to celebrate International Day of Peace (Sept. 21). Pinwheels were put on public display with messages and pictures of things that bring peace to the students on a daily basis.
When Todd Caulfield, a sixth-grade teacher at Cherokee Elementary School, received an email from A Child’s Hope International asking for donations to assist victims of Hurricane Ida, he knew just who to turn to: the school’s sixth-grade ambassadors.
