We want our children to be successful in both school and in life. Welcome to our web page. We hope you enjoy the visit to our beautiful school!!
We are very excited about Superintendent Noflin's new Literacy Challenge. Each week your child will bring home a tally sheet to record the books read during the week. Prizes will be awarded to the children that read the most books at Cherry Ridge. In grades Pre-K - 2 the winner will receive a LEAP PAD. In grades 3 - 5 the winner will receive a NOOK BOOK READER. All classrooms will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner that will receive ribbons. All children participating will receive a certificate. The contest will end on November 22. Trophies will be awarded to district winners. We would like OUR children to be among the district winners. Help your child succeed in this challenge by encouraging him/her to participate by reading his/her AR books. Our Accelerated Reader program is a great program that works well with the literacy challenge. Let's READ, READ, READ!!!!
Homework folders are green and come home daily.
Test folders are red and come home Wednesday.

Our Children are rewarded every six weeks for achieving their Accelerated Reading Goals. We make time every morning for children to read their AR books before the day begins. There are computers in the lab and each classroom for your child to take AR tests.
Our students check out a book every Monday from the library, and if they want to check out additional books, they may do so from their teacher's classroom library. You may also visit the Morehouse Parish Public Library.
The AR Goals for our students for each six weeks are as follows:
1st Grade 4 pts
2nd Grade 5 pts
3rd grade 6 pts
4th grade 7 pts
5th grade 8 pts
