Superintendent Dr. David J. Peterson's September Letter

Dear Scottsdale Unified School District Family,

The 2014-15 school year is off to a great start! It is hard to believe that we are already done with our first month of school. During the first few days of school, I was able to visit every school in the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD). Great things are going on in our classrooms – thank you all for a positive start to the new school year. Additionally, members of my Leadership Team visited campuses to help ensure an excellent beginning. It is great to see everyone working together on behalf of students. 
See the September Letter.

Cherokee is going "Green!"

In an attempt to go “green”, we will not be sending home individual vendor flyers in backpacks.  These will be included on the Cherokee website and in the front office.   In the future, we will announce what new flyers are available in the office.

Thank you,

The Cherokee Office Staff
