The Code of Conduct at Cherry Hill Elementary is designed to maintain an understanding of acceptable behaviours that foster respect for the integrity of the individual, the rights of persons in our school, and the responsibility of the whole community. Our Code of Conduct outlines a general framework for behavioural expectations for everyone who enters our community.

Code of Citizenship

Cherry Hill operates on the belief that all students have the right and responsibility to learn. Therefore, we are responsible for providing a positive, safe and nurturing environment for all members of the school community. This, in turn, allows all students the opportunity to learn, grow and strive to do their personal best.

Cherry Hill is committed to promoting the social conscience, self-discipline and sense of responsibility which characterize an educated citizen. At Cherry Hill, we believe that as students move up through successive grades, there is a developmental increase in personal responsibility and the ability to practice appropriate self-discipline. Along with this increase in responsibility and the ability to make wise choices comes an increase in consequences for inappropriate behaviours. As students’ progress to higher grades, they will play a greater role in ensuring Cherry Hill Elementary is a safe, caring and enjoyable learning environment.
