Welcome to Cheyenne Elementary School! My name is Mark Johnson and I am the Principal at Cheyenne Elementary. I have been serving the Chippewa Valley community since 2005 at the elementary and secondary levels. Over the past eleven years I have been a third grade teacher at Miami Elementary, and have worked as part of the administrative teams at Iroquois Middle School, Wyandot Middle School, Shawnee Elementary and Cheyenne Elementary.
Like you, my children attend Chippewa Valley Schools. My wonderful wife is a Kindergarten teacher at Miami Elementary and my two daughters attend Miami Elementary. Our son attends Little Turtle Preschool.
As an administrator I believe in building positive relationships between the school and community. My goal as Cheyenne's Principal is to be an educational resource for staff, students and parents. At the core of every successful educational experience is a team of parents, educators, and students working together to make learning meaningful and engaging. Cheyenne offers many programs for students and families to be involved in. Take advantage of the great events the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) coordinates and bring the whole family!
The weather will begin to cool off as Fall gets into full swing. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. Students will continue to line up outside of the building, during morning arrival, except during inclement weather.
Fall Conferences will be held in the evening on Wednesday, October 25th, and the afternoon and evening on Thursday, October 26th. Teachers will be sending out a SignUp Genius link, via e-mail, so you can schedule a time/date that works best for your family. Teacher Sign-Up Genius links will also be accessible on the Cheyenne website.
In the past, we have sent out a newsletter each month, however, we have noticed a lot of the information is duplicated in adjacent months. We feel we can streamline this process to make it more effective and informative and reduce the amount of waste and paperwork coming home to our families. Therefore, to help support our green school initiatives, we will be publishing a bi-monthly newsletter for the remainder of the school year. I have detailed the schedule for publishing our school newsletters below:
As always, our newsletter will be available on our website. Thank you for your support of our green school initiatives and helping Cheyenne earn green school points.
Student safety is always a top priority. We have outlined in this newsletter a few reminders about our parking lot to help ensure our students are safe when entering and exiting the building. Please take a few moments to read through the parking lot procedures. If we all follow these guidelines we will have a safe parking lot for all of our Cheyenne families. Thank you for your cooperation.
Yours in education,
