Our School

Hello Cherry Park Families,

Welcome to our beloved school’s website. Here you will find useful information about our school and the activities and resources we have to offer our community. We are very proud of the education we provide for all of our students and the support we give to our school families. Positive relationships,  care, and connection for all is at the center of our work. 

We have a variety of resources and programs available for our community here at Cherry Park. These include a Ready, Set, Go birth to age three class in partnership with Metropolitan Family Services, four preschool classes, and kindergarten through grade five. In addition, we have a rich after-school S.U.N program (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) through Multnomah Family Services. 

We continue to live in unprecedented times. The past year has shown us just how important our partnerships are in order to create a positive, successful path for our students. I am so incredibly proud of how resilient, strong, and flexible our students and families have become. Please know that we are working hard to provide as typical a learning environment as possible, focusing on access and equity for all. I ask for your continued patience and grace as we navigate this path together.

The entire Cherry Park staff is honored to serve our community. Our motto is “Everyone Growing.” We are true believers in a growth mindset. We meet every student where they are and provide the necessary support and encouragement for them to reach their full potential. 

We all sincerely look forward to working as a team with all students and families. All are welcome here!
