4 Things About Cherry Run Elementary


Cherry Run has an Advanced Academic Program for students in grades K-6. The school works with teachers to identify students that may benefit from the program, however, you can also request a screening of your child by contact the school directly. If your child is selected for the AAP program they’ll be pulled from class with other students throughout the week for those subjects.

Cherry Run is one of the few elementary schools in Fairfax County that offers foreign language through FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary Schools. At Cherry Run, Spanish is taught through the Language Through Content (LTC) course. That means Spanish is taught using one of two models incorporating Spanish into the science and STEAM content.

Beginning in 4th-grade students can elect to join the strings program in addition to general music. In 5th and 6th-grade students can choose to join the school band as well.

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Cherry Run’s hours are Monday through Friday are 9:20 to 4:05.

If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Cherry Run offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Each school year the PTA offers a number of fee-based enrichment programs. They range from science focused to athletics, and the arts.

There are lots of opportunities to support your child and the school by volunteering in the lunchroom, office, and classrooms. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like. You can sign up to volunteer on the school website which is linked below.
