Kate Barker, Principal

Dear Families: 

As many of you know, I am retiring at the end of June as Cherry Park’s principal. I am so pleased to announce that MATT SOULE has been named the next Cherry Park principal. Matt Soule has been a familiar face to Cherry Park, where he has served as a Student Behavior Specialist, Student Achievement Specialist, and second-grade teacher for the past seven years. Before coming to Cherry Park, Matt worked at both Mill Park and North Powellhurst as a teacher, school improvement coordinator and counselor.  He has been a special part of our school community and is a wonderful choice for Cherry Park’s next principal. He has a huge focus on relationships, equitable opportunities and student achievement. There is no one I would rather have to follow me as the principal. Please join me in welcoming Matt as your new principal!

“I am so incredibly honored and humbled to be given the opportunity to work with our community as the principal of Cherry Park,” Mr. Soule said. “I love and value our Cherry Park and Douglas family so much. I look forward to continuing to build upon our positive relationships in order to serve our students to the best of our abilities.”

Below you find information that will be helpful navigating school this Spring. If you have any questions, please let us know.

STUDENT CHROMEBOOKS

Each student is issued a Chromebook so that they can engage in synchronous (live), asynchronous (recorded), and applied (independent) learning.  If you need to exchange a Chromebook, please come to our office Monday-Friday 7:30 AM- 3:30 PM.

STUDENT AND FAMILY SUPPORT

We provide support to our families so that they know how best to help their children. Our Curriculum and Technology Department provide video tutorials to help parents and students. We also provide technical ‘Helpdesk’ support via email and phone for our staff, families, and students.  In addition, each day our teachers have office hours where you can call and check-in if you have questions.  Please go to this link if you need help:  https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/school-during-covid/family-technology-support/

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

We typically charge a $20.00 supply fee for each of our students. We will not be charging parents during distance learning. When we go back to school in person we may charge families a pro-rated amount. 

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH

We will not be serving breakfast and lunch at school. However, students have the opportunity to either bring home breakfast, lunch and dinner when they are at school in person OR come by Cherry Park Monday-Friday to pick up meals to eat at home.  

FOOD BOXES

We have food boxes available for families to pick up twice a week. Swing on in every Monday from 3:45-5:15 and Wednesdays 2:15-3:15 to get your food box.  Food boxes are distributed on a first come/first serve basis. See more details at: https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/school-during-covid/food-resources/
