Grand Chiefs 2022-2023

The Grand Chief Program is a way to involve your child’s grandparent(s) or special person in their lives with our wonderful school. The Grand Chief program provides Cherokee Bend Elementary grandparents and other special relatives with an opportunity to support our great school with 100% of the contributions going directly back to Cherokee Bend.

How do I involve my child’s grandparent?

  • You can fill out the Google Doc (link is in E-News) or send an email to with your child’s name, grade, grandparent/special person name, address, and email.


What happens when I provide this information?

  • The Grand Chief committee handles the rest! We will mail your child’s grandparent/special person a letter outlining how they can be involved (by making a monetary donation) and perks for making a donation.

  • We will send a follow up letter as well as a thank you letter when the donation is received.


What are said perks?

  • A book will be donated to your child’s class in their honor.

  • Your child will be invited to attend a special breakfast with their Grand Chief in April (during school hours) and they will bring their book to share with their Grand Chief.

  • A special gift will be given to the Grand Chiefs at the spring breakfast.

  • Grand Chiefs will receive a Fall and Spring Newsletter with updates about how their donation is being used to benefit our school as well as happenings around Cherokee Bend.
