Cherokee County Schools March Newsletter

This Month in our Schools

March 9: All Juniors will be taking the ACT at school.

March 15-19: ONLINE Kindergarten Registration

March 22: End of the 3rd nine weeks.

March 26: Report cards will be sent home.

March 29 - April 2: SPRING BREAK!!

Be PROACTIVE now so there's no surprises at the end of the year!

  • Check those report cards! How is your child doing in class?
  • Do you need to schedule a conference with his/her teacher to be sure that the end of the year will go smoothly?
  • Clean out backpacks and notebooks in preparation for the last nine weeks. Kids tend to let organization go at the end of the year. Help them get reset.
  • Push for good attendance! It's easy to let that slide a little when warmer temperatures return, but if they're healthy, kids must be in school to keep their grades up.
  • Know your child's weekly schedule, which should be pretty routine by now. Check-in with them about turning in assignments, keeping up with reading, and studying for tests.

Do you have a child who will be starting Kindergarten next year?

In order to better plan for the number of teachers that we will need and to set class sizes appropriately, we need to know if you plan on enrolling a student in kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year. Click this link to get the registration process started. More forms will be sent to you this summer, but this get's your little one on their way to Kindergarten!!

Parent Resources Available for You!

Did you know when you watch one of our Parent Education Programs, we provide resources for you to engage with your children in the activities we talk about in the program. We have a limited supply for each episode (Epsiodes 1 and 2 have already been claimed), but it is our desire to put the resources in as many parent hands as possible! Be sure to watch and submit your attendance so we can reach out!

PLUS, there's a $50 drawing!!

Our local Walmart store has donated a $50 gift card! After all 4 PEP Talks have aired, we will hold a drawing for the donated card! If you have submitted your attendance at all 4 episodes, then your name will be entered. The drawing will be held on Thursday, April 29th. Be sure you watch the episodes (and record your attendance) before then!

What else do you want to learn about? Let us Know!!

We have sessions scheduled to talk about childhood anxiety and understanding our children's emotions, including anger and depression. We'll also talk about social media, screen time, and dangerous behaviors at the start of next year. But we want to hear from YOU about specific questions, concerns, or additional topics that you are interested in! All input will be completely confidential. Please call or email us with any thoughts and ideas! 256-927-1734 Suzannah Yoder: syoder@cherokeek12.org or Laura Browder: lbrowder@cherokeek12.org
