Welcome to Cherokee Ridge Elementary. Please check out the news/upcoming events section located under "About Us" to stay updated about events on the calendar. 


We are currently taking the MAP assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to see where each student stands with grade level standards at this point in the year. This is the second MAP assessment that has been administered this year. The Mean score below shows what each grade level needs to score to be considered "on grade level". If you have questions about your childs MAP score please contact their teacher.

As Principal at Cherokee RIdge Elementary, my goal is to ensure a positive, safe learning environment filled with caring adults focused on the academic needs of all students.

This is my 35th year in education at Walker County Schools, my 24th at Cherokee Ridge and 16th as principal. While many things have changed in education over the years, I remain committed to and excited about the opportunities for educating students each year. My history as a student in Walker County Public Schools further fuels my passion for being a positive influencer in our community for all students.

Parents are encouraged to contact me via email at lorivann@walkerschools.org or 706 375 9831.
