Welcome to the school year at Cherry School.

My name is Michael Johnson and I am the PreK-12 Principal at Cherry School. I would like welcome you to Cherry School. I am in my seventh year in Cherry and am lucky to be working with such a great staff and students. I am extremely lucky to have such supportive families and community members to work with. I am proud to be a part of this tight knit community, which sees the school with such great pride and prestige.

I use the following mission and guiding principles to focus my attention and serve the students and staff at Cherry School.

District Administration Staff AIM for the 2022-23 school year:

Our focus is on the well-being of staff and students and to create safe and connected relationships.  

Personal Mission:
I have a desire to be a positive infectious person that motivates others to find life passions and connect individuals with a greater sense of community and purpose with those I am in contact with.

Cherry School Vision:
The Cherry School family works together to respect ourselves and others as we prepare students for a lifetime of learning. With pride and ownership, students build self confidence, motivation, social skills, and academic excellence to be contributing members of society.

The staff is dedicated to providing the best education for our students at Cherry School. They have a strong desire to meet the learning needs of the students. The staff is caring, optimistic, resourceful, proactive, and have a great passion for Cherry School.


It is very important for me to build strong, positive relationships with everyone, so I encourage you to introduce yourself when the opportunity arrives.  I look forward to meeting students and parents anytime.


Michael S. Johnson
