Hello Cheatham Parents and Students!

Welcome back to another exciting school year!   It is an honor to lead you into this school year and build on our past successes.  Thank you for putting your trust in our staff to help your child reach his/her full potential.  You can be assured that each day your student has access to rigorous core curriculum, supplemented with specials such as art, music and physical education.  Teachers at Cheatham will focus their instructional practices on WICOR strategies, meaning that all classes will have an emphasis on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading, all necessary skills in the 21st century. In addition to the challenging curriculum, you can feel comfortable knowing that Cheatham is a safe environment.  Students and staff of Cheatham Elementary practice PAWS in their daily interactions.  PAWS stands for:

  • Practice Respect
  • Accept Responsibility
  • Work Together
  • Stay Safe

Parents:  please familiarize yourself with the student handbook and go over it with your students to ensure a successful school year.  In addition to this handbook, I would also like to invite you to explore our website.  Here you will find individual teacher pages, our calendar of events and other pertinent information throughout the school year.  I would also like to invite you to our Booster Club meetings so we can work together on behalf of your student.

I am looking forward to another PAWSome school year!

Yours in education,

Ms. Kristi Pashley
