Family Engagement

Cherokee County School District

October News

We're excited to partner more closely with parents this year as we work together to help our students be successful. Families have several opportunities to share with us in this month's newsletter. Take the time to tell us some good news as well as letting us know of any needs you have. We are better when we work together and that starts with open lines of communication. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Is Your Child Needing Help?

If your family is having a hard time right now - with school work, school supplies, or other concerns that are keeping your kids from learning - please let us know! Click here to tell us more.

Family Workshop Opportunities

The completed family surveys have shown an interest in workshops covering topics on virtual learning at home, social media safety, college planning, and accessing student information. We look forward to putting together informative, virtual presentations to share information with our families about each of these topics. Stay tuned!

Countdown to College

Cherokee County Schools has partnered with Potential Magazine to host a "Countdown to College" Admissions and Scholarships Virtual Workshop on Tuesday, October 20th. Students will be able to log in and participate either with their class at school or at home at their convenience. This information-packed workshop is part of a series of events designed to help 10th-12th grade students and their parents as they begin the process of preparing for college.

At each Countdown to College workshop, a panel of representatives from several Alabama colleges offers tips and advice to parents and students regarding the admissions process, as well as providing information on tuition costs, local scholarship opportunities, and financial aid.

Report Cards Will Come Home on October 27th

It's time for the first status check with your children! Let's find out how they are doing, what they are learning, and if there's anything that teachers might need from families to be better equipped to understand your child. Remember, report cards also provide a chance to check attendance and contact information. Communications with teachers about report card grades are best sent via email or through a phone call. If you have a concern, contact the teacher first before moving forward to the counselor or school administration.
