Prairie Fire Theater Visits Cherry School

IMG_3082IMG_3109During the week of November 3rd-7th the Prairie Fire Theater visited Cherry with two of their professional stage actors to put on a production of Peter Pan.  Many elementary and a few high school students signed up for the play and received roles.

Two performances were held on Friday.  One in the afternoon for the students, and another in the evening for the community members.  The audiences enjoyed themselves immensely.

Cherry School thanks Community Education Coordinator Carol Andrews for bringing the Prairie Fire Theater in and working with the students to put on this show for students and community.

Cherry School Hosts Fall Blood Drive

On Friday, November 7th, the Cherry Student Council hosted it’s annual Fall Blood Drive through Memorial Blood Centers.  Many new first time donors came out, including History teacher Mr. Swart!

The Student Council was also very active during the day.  They supervised elementary classes while the teachers gave blood, cooked the breakfast for the donors, and acted as escorts for people when it was time for them to give blood.  A big thank you to the Student Council for all the help!

Cherry School Hosts Tiger Tracks Night


On May 8, over 300 parents, students, community members, and staff braved torrential rain to attend Cherry’s Tiger Tracks Night.  The evening was a hit!  Art work and projects by students were on display throughout the school, including a canoe made in Mr. Herring’s shop class. Area businesses and services including local fire departments and sheriff squads were on hand in the north parking lot for kids to check out.  BSA Troop 129 under the guidance of Scoutmaster Baumann set up numerous gym activities for enjoyment.  The PTSO book fair was available for parents and students, and the concession stand was open for a light meal or snacks.


Tiger Tracks Night was a great opportunity for students to showcase their accomplishments through the year and for attendees to come together for an evening of community sharing.  The Cherry School Staff looks forward to hosting this event each spring.


Cherry Elementary Celebrates Smokey Bear’s 70th Birthday

Students in grades K-6 were treated to a celebration of Smokey Bear’s 70th Birthday on May 6.  The DNR and Cherry Fire Department brought fire equipment for students to not only learn more about, but even try out.  A helicopter used to put out fires landed on the football field.  Students had the opportunity to walk up to the helicopter and ask questions of the pilots.  Another booth included information on tree care.  Also inside was a presentation on the history of Smokey Bear and even a visit from Smokey Bear himself!  The information provided by the DNR and the Cherry Fire Department helped the students to understand the importance of fire safety and prevention.
The final presentation was a demonstration by the helicopter.  Students and staff watched as the helicopter took off from the football field, flew off to pick up water from a nearby lake, and then returned to drop it by the football field.
The Cherry Elementary would like to thank the DNR, DNR pilots and crew, and the Cherry Fire Department for the interesting and informative morning!
