Quality Education for Future Success

New Pick Up Procedures – Beginning Monday March 21st 2016

Due to the increased number of car riders this year, we have some traffic flow issues, particularly in the afternoon. After collaborating with the Catoosa Transportation Director, Campus Police and City Police, we have come up with a solution. 

Beginning Monday, March 21st, parents will need to pick-up students at the back door by the cafeteria. Cars should enter and exit the Cherokee parking lot from W. Elm Street not Cherokee Street. Parents are asked to remain in their cars and should not park and approach the doors on foot.

Buses will enter from Cherokee Street picking up students in the front. This is for afternoon pick up only. 

Morning drop off will remain the same, with buses unloading at the back door and car riders unloading in the front.

Please call if you have questions or concerns. 


Each student has a different reading goal according to his/her ability. Students qualify for rewards each quarter when they reach their reading goals. Students receive a free bag of popcorn and the following reward each quarter:

1st Quarter – Students who meet their reading goal may wear their Halloween costume to school on     Friday Oct 30th. Cut off is on Thursday, Oct 8th.

2nd Quarter – Students who meet their reading goal may attend the ice cream sundae party on Friday Dec 18th. Cut off is on Wednesday, Dec 16th.

3rd Quarter – Students who meet their reading goal will be entered into a drawing to appear in a Jib/Jab video shown at the March SOM assembly. Cut off is on Thursday, March 3rd.

4th Quarter – Students who meet their reading goal for the year cumulatively, may attend the top secret AR event. Cut off is on Thursday, May 5th

         Keep Reading!  

You won’t want to miss out on the fun!
