Welcome to Cherry Lane School


Cherry Lane Mission Statement

As a primary school, we seek to impart a respect for the world, a body of academic information, a mastery of basic skills and a joy in learning so that growth continues beyond the school day and beyond the school years.

Since we want our pupils to develop and expand their innate intellectual, physical and creative abilities, we also assist them in acquiring the sense of self-worth and the self-discipline necessary for such an accomplishment.

Furthermore, since our school is a reflection of the community and the country as a whole, we constantly evaluate our curriculum to make certain that they reflect changing needs.

Finally, we seek to provide programs for all students on all levels of the educational spectrum.

Cherry Lane students have been connecting with children from around the world through the use of live video and activities thanks to the online tool  Empatico.

A free tool available to educators, Empatico is an initiative from The KIND Foundation, a separate philanthropic entity started by KIND Healthy Snacks.

Cherry Lane students have been exploring the world through experiences that encourage kindness, empathy and curiosity. Several classes have engaged in video interaction with students around the world, which has provided them with the opportunity to learn about the world beyond their local community.

Reading Across Cherry Lane

Cherry Lane students recently held a weeklong celebration of literacy in conjunction with Read Across America Day, which is March 1. As a culmination to the week, K-2 students paraded into the gymnasium for a schoolwide readathon and also recognized Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 1. Students recited an oath to read for a sustained period of time; kindergartners maintained their reading stamina for 15 minutes, while first- and second-graders read for 26 minutes before returning to their classrooms. Staff members also dived into their favorite books and thoroughly enjoyed the celebration of reading.

Reading specialist Danielle Emmel coordinated this and several other fun, literacy-based activities during the week leading up to Read Across America Day. Among them were a Storybook Character Day in which students and staff dressed like their favorite character from a book, a Curl Up With a Good Book Day in which students came to school dressed in their pajamas and a Fox in Socks crazy socks day, which payed homage to the popular Dr. Seuss book. 

Measuring Their Own Growth

Cherry Lane students recently participated in assessments to measure their personal academic progress from the beginning of the school year.  Each student had the opportunity to review their growth data with their teachers, and set goals for the remainder of the school year.  Pictured are second graders from Ms. Santos and Mrs. Cruz’ class proudly displaying certificates earned for embracing their challenges and celebrating their growth.

Battle of the Classes on March 1

The Carle Place High School Key Club and Student Organization are hosting Battle of the Classes at Carle Place Middle/High School on Friday, March 1 beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

Each year, students “battle” for a special cause during Battle of the Classes. This year’s charity was selected based on sophomore Victoria Argenzio’s work with the Long Island Tourette Association. Victoria’s work is inspired by her brother, Stephen Argenenzio (Class of 2018) and his struggle with Tourette syndrome.  

On Feb. 1, Carle Place Middle/High School hosted a special assembly to raise awareness about this year’s event. Jane Zwilling, co-chair of the Long Island chapter of the Tourette Association of America (TAA) and co-director of the Long Island Center for Tourette and Associated Disorders, spoke at the assembly. 

It is both the Key Club’s and Student Organization’s hope that this event will raise awareness for children with Tourette syndrome, eliminate bullying and erase misconceptions about Tourette, while also raising funding for this cause.

Carle Place High School junior and Key Club President Lauren Basso is pictured here volunteering as a member of the Long Island Tourette Association’s support group.  Lauren and Samantha Wagner were instrumental in creating the informational video about Tourette syndrome and this year’s Battle of the Classes.

Friendly Messages Shared on Valentine’s Day

Keeping with this month’s character education theme of friendship, and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Cherry Lane students wrote friendly valentine messages to one another, their teachers and school staff members. Pictured are some students “caught” in the act of placing their messages in the school valentine mailbox, which was located in the school lobby. On Valentine’s Day, everyone opened his or her messages, providing a special feeling of warmth on an otherwise chilly mid-February winter’s day.
