    Principal's Message

    Welcome to Cheremoya Elementary School. We are proud to continue our service to the Hollywood community for over 103 years now. A vibrant and diverse community, we embrace the arts and environment. Our students participate in a wide range of enrichment around the arts, nature and physical fitness. We serve students TK-6th grade and have two preschool programs on site (CSPP and PAL).

    Cheremoya Foundation is our active parent group and booster club. Parent members support and enrich student exposure to the arts and other learning activities. Our community partners include Hollywood Orchard, Hollywood Arts Council,and the Hollywood YMCA among others.

    Students benefit from the use of a designated science lab, arts space, and technology room in addition to two outdoor garden areas. YS/YDP and Prime Time provide after-school care and enrichment and our main hallway houses our updated parent center. Our recent school-wide focus has been on restorative justice practices, cognitively guided instruction math strategies and an early language and literacy plan.

    Come visit and see Hollywood magic being made. For 103 years, Cheremoya -a place to shine!

    Mr. Stephen Salva



    A Creative Network School

    Cheremoya will join other LAUSD schools as part of the Creative Network in 2018-2019. All students TK-6 will receive arts integration/instruction in four disciplines during either nine or twelve week rotations.

    This new collaboration with the LAUSD Arts Branch supports our designation as an Arts Pathway School in LDW.

    Please be certain to come visit our rotation of  student art in our gallery showcase located in our main hallway.


    A labor of love and joint effort of Cheremoya Foundation, community volunteers and LAUSD. The OLC is an incredible outdoor learning and play space that has to be seen. Dedicated in 2016, the area includes a dry creek bed and amazing native plants in addition to much needed green space for students to enjoy.

    Cheremoya is also home of an EnrichLA edible garden. Student enrichment classes are delivered by a garden ranger thanks to the support of Cheremoya Foundation.

    Dismissal Procedure [Updated]

    Grades PKKindergarten and 1-6 students are dismissed from the two Cheremoya gates (one for valet pick-up, the other for walking students).  Parents, please wait outside the gates, as the procedure allows for a safer dismissal system.  Please do not make U-Turns or cross the street without a crosswalk- it is for your child's safety.  State Pre-School students are dismissed from the Franklin/Beachwood gate.  


    Social Emotional learning

    Cheremoya Elementary is committed to supporting both social emotional development and academic learning.

    The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is used with Kindergarteners to provide important data on academic and social emotional development.

    Resource supports include an instructional coach and psychiatric social worker.

    Sanford Harmony curriculum helps students meet up and buddy up. Community builders, conversations and collaborations help improve relationships, teach empathy, increase confidence and reduce bullying among students.

    Restorative practices are centered in community building circles in classrooms.

    If you think that someone can use a friend be one".

    Two vibrant yellow and blue Buddy Benches on our playground encourage students to build friendships.

    Cheremoya staff is part of the Common Ground Community of Practice.

    The five schools that make up the partnership have a goal of expanding and integrating SEL and culturally responsive practices that facilitate the inclusion of typically marginalized students in the school community.

    The implementation of student-centered SEL practices result in a school-wide culture of safety and inclusion for all students.
