Matt Soule, Principal

Hello Cherry Park Families,

I am so incredibly honored and excited to be the new Cherry Park principal. For the past eight years, I have developed a deep love, respect, and commitment to our Cherry Park community. The opportunity to lead our school community is truly a dream come true for me. 

I’ve had the privilege of being an educator for eighteen years, the past eight at Cherry Park. I have taught every elementary grade except for 1st and have worked at four elementary schools in the David Douglas School District. Additionally, I have many years of leadership experience, having served as a School Improvement Coordinator and Student Behavior Specialist in multiple schools. Positive school climate,  behavior, and student growth is my background and passion. I am eager and excited to further develop and implement these concepts as the principal of Cherry Park. Through our partnership together, I’m confident that we can ensure that your child reaches their full potential. 

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 together.

The entire Cherry Park staff is very excited to welcome our families back in September. Please be on the lookout for future communication regarding fall reopening and opportunities to connect. In addition, please know that I am always available to connect with you prior to the start of the year. I value and welcome your feedback as I adjust to my new role. 

I sincerely look forward to working as a team with all of our talented educators and families to help each student reach their fullest potential. I truly believe that all of our students have an unlimited capacity for success!
