Our Mission Statement
Welcome to the Adventure,
The Future Begins Here!
The educational community at Thomas Paine will provide and build a quality educational environment focused on the positive values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, and Active Citizenship to instill a sense of honor within our students allowing them to reach high academic standards while preparing them to succeed in a diverse and constantly changing world.
The Cherry Hill Fire Department has been a partner with the Cherry Hill School District providing fire safety education for many years. In 2014 we presented a new program entitled "Safety Smart". Safety Smart is a school-based curriculum that links teachers with community safety experts and parents. Safety Smart is being taught in grades 1, 3, 5 and 6 as part of the Physical/Health Education Program.
The goal of the Safety Smart Program is not only to teach students valuable safety skills, but also to have the students put these skills to use outside of the school environment. A valuable tool to help us evaluate the effectiveness of the program is the parent survey. We ask parents/guardians to please take a few minutes to complete an online Parent Survey so we can determine how, if at all, the instruction is being put to use.
Select summer enrichment classes are still open at Cherry Hill High School East in drama, art, photography, graphic design, model rockets, knitting, chess and more for Cherry Hill residents entering grades 5-11. Course descriptions and registration form are available by clicking here. Please submit registration form and payment ASAP.
The Cherry Hill Public Schools is in the process of doing water analysis in all 19 of our buildings. Please see the District's Water Testing Results & Plan page for updated information.
At Thomas Paine Elementary School, we strive to maintain open lines of communication with all school community members. One of the best ways for you to help your child throughout his/her educational journey is to stay informed and be involved in their education. Our school offers the following ways to obtain the most up to date information and celebrations.
