Cherry Valley Elementary Gymnasium Dedication

1/28/2019

​​​1/28/2019 Update: Tonight’s gymnasium dedication at Cherry Valley Elementary School is rescheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4. 

1/23/2019: Cherry Valley Elementary School students and staff will dedicate their gymnasium to Leonard B. Kel​ler, a former Cherry V​alley resident who attended Cherry Valley School and Guilford High School. Keller was ​a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War who received the Medal of Honor. The event is at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, before the school's first ever home basketball game. Keller's family plans to attend the event.

The school opened to students for the 2018-19 school year. Leonard B. Keller's namesake was suggested for the new school more than a year ago for the district's first new school construction since 1998. The name Cherry Valley Elementary School was ultimately selected, with a recommendation to honor Keller in another way at the new building.

The district's second new K-5 school, Constance Lane Elementary School, will open to students in the 2019-20 school year.

For more information about the event, please contact Cherry Valley Elementary Assistant Principal Amy Croxford, croxfoa@rps205.com.
