Check out our schedules and come support our teams!
Cherry Avenue Middle School is excited to be able to offer an athletics program filled with a variety of sports and intramural activities for our students. This program is designed to help students learn team building skills, engage in fun and healthy competition, and to create the habit of getting daily exercise. We encourage all 7th and 8th graders to become involved in the intramural program, regardless of their athletic ability. This is the time to try new things and learn new skills.
The sports available at Cherry Avenue are:
We compete with middle schools from surrounding areas and invite all students and families to support our teams by cheering for the Bulldogs on game days.
Education Equity Program
The California Department of Education recently issued the 2015-2016 Education Equity program instrument (Guidance), which is used to monitor a local educational agency's (LEA) compliance with laws on equity in the treatment of students. A major purpose behind the bill is to make it easier to monitor and enforce Title IX and state requirements for gender equity in public school athletics.
We are required to post (1) total school enrollment, classified by gender; (2) total number of students who participate in athletics, classified by gender; and (3) total number of school athletic teams, classified by gender, sport, and competition level. (Source: Lozano Smith, Attorneys at Law)
We invite you to view our school’s education equity numbers.
