    Principal's Message

    Greetings Cheremoya Community,  

    I am delighted to be the Principal of Cheremoya Avenue Elementary! I feel fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members. I have been an educator in the Los Angeles Unified School District for 25 years as a teacher (17 ½ years), mathematics advocate, an assistant principal, and a Constructivist educational leader. Here are a few things about me: 

    • I love my family, I've been married 20 years with 2 children (16 & 14) 
    • I am a Social Meliorist 
    • I love Mathematics 
    • I am dedicated to the mental and emotional well-being of my school community 
    • I taught at South Shores Magnet for the Visual & Performing Arts for 12 ½ years 
    • Graduate of The University of Southern California, BS Public Policy and Management, California State University, Dominguez Hills, MA Public Administration, a host of Teaching and Administrative Credentials, and currently attending The University of Missouri, Columbia, Ed.D Mathematics Education 
    • Mindfulness practice is important to me 
    • I am the co-author of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) Essential Actions Framework for Leadership in Mathematics Education (2020) 

    I believe students’ interests and curiosity yields the intrinsic motivation that leads students on a road of life-long learning with teachers as facilitators. I value an integrated curriculum that provides our students with a rich balanced educational experience that celebrates the whole child. I believe the level of student agency, positive identity, and self-efficacy is highly correlated to the classroom environment. 

    I highly esteem the wonder of learning, where our young humans develop a taste for the thrill and satisfaction that comes from seeking novel solutions to complex problems and to uncover fascinating new questions. I envision our classroom spaces are inclusive environments where emerging intellectuals, inventors, mathematicians, techies, musicians, artists, and scientists discover that liminal space between intellect and designed play.  

    As I begin my tenure at Cheremoya, I endeavor to intentionally maintain the close-knit school community whose teachers and leaders customize learning experiences that value our students’ social-emotional development and cultural awareness as much as their academic development.  I look forward to partnering with you in this year to continue the work of your amazing community in designing and implementing dynamic resources, engendering positive mental and emotional health outcomes, collaborating with the various teams to promote complex instruction, while embracing innovation and self-care. Cheers to my new adventure as a Sensational Shining Star! 

    Kindest regards,
    Christina Lincoln-Moore

    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.
