We are thrilled to announce the upcoming graduation ceremonies for our cherished students at Cherryvale Elementary School! Please mark your calendars with the following dates and times:

  1. Pre-K Graduation: May 23rd, at 9 am
  2. Kindergarten Graduation: May 24th, at 9:30 am
  3. 5th Grade Graduation: May 23rd, at 12 pm

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees, a limited number of tickets have been issued to the families of each student. This arrangement is necessary due to the limited capacity of our facilities.

We understand that some loved ones may not be able to attend in person, so we are pleased to announce that all graduation ceremonies will be live-streamed on our school’s Facebook page. This will allow those who are unable to attend to cheer on our graduates from afar.

On behalf of the entire staff at Cherryvale Elementary School, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all our graduating students. Your dedication, hard work, and resilience have brought you to this important milestone. We look forward to celebrating with you and your families as you embark on the next chapter of your academic journey.

Dear Parent or Guardian,

The South Carolina College and Career-Ready Assessment (SC READY) is a statewide assessment that includes tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics administered to students in grades 3-8. All students in grades 3-8 are required to participate in the SC READY, except those who qualify for the Alternate Assessment which is for students with significant cognitive disabilities. Additionally, the SC READY is a required statewide assessment program in science that is administered to students in grades 4 and 6 in elementary and middle school. The SC READY is an untimed test, administered in an online testing format, and used for state and federal accountability purposes.

Items on SC READY will include selected response, short answer, evidence-based selected response, and test-dependent analysis. Evidence-based selected response questions will require students to read a piece of text or a passage and choose the best answer from answer choices. Text-depended analysis will require students to read a piece of text or a passage and draw upon that text for their extended written responses. Items on SC READY science tests will be multiple choice. SC READY is aligned to the state standards that are taught in your child’s classroom.

Please refer to the information below regarding testing at your child’s school.

Dear Cherryvale Elementary School Family,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of your for your continued support as we work together to “ensure the highest quality education for all students, building character, and instilling a desire for lifelong learning.”

The third quarter of the school year provided much excitement and growth among our school family. We hosted our first in-person awards assembly and community paint night following the COVID-19 pandemic, opened our doors to over 60 community members to read to our classes for Read Across America Week, celebrated local heroes for both Black History and Women’s History months, witnessed amazing performances from our staff and students before hearing words of inspiration from Mrs. Newton-Tabon during our Black History Assembly, and saw significant growth among our students with regard to academics and behavior. We are now at the stage of the school year where the excitement of the warm weather, 4th quarter, and coming Summer Break is driving us to finish the school-year in good standing.

We look forward to continuing to work together to bring 2022-2023 to a successful close. #TalonsUp
