Checking in with Cherokee’s Chad Prosen
Principal Chad Prosen, pictured reading to Caryn Tsagalis’ first-grade class, says he has enjoyed witnessing the many events and traditions Cherokee celebrates as a school community.
How did you recognize National Gratitude Month at Cherokee?
We are so thankful that the APT helped organize our Cherokee Thankful Bulletin Board for the month of November. The students added their “feathers” to the bulletin board, which included items of gratitude and thankfulness. Additionally, the faculty and staff had their own “turkey.” Staff members took a “turkey feather” with another staff member's name on it and completed an act of kindness for them.

As the first half of the school year heads toward a close, are there any standout events or actions you want to highlight?
Halloween Spookfest and Donuts with Grown-ups have been two events the school community was able to participate in as result of the efforts of the APT. Having the community back together has been a highlight of the school year.
What are you most looking forward to in 2022?
I am looking forward to the Winter and Spring Sing events and all the activities that take place at Cherokee. Among the countless enjoyable moments of my early months as principal of Cherokee Elementary School has been witnessing the many events and traditions Cherokee celebrates as a school community. I am looking forward to taking part in more of these throughout 2022.
