Welcome, New Families

Do you have a neighbor with an incoming Kindergartener who plans to attend Cherry Crest? Let them know to register!
We strongly encourage all incoming students to register immediately through the secure district enrollment portal. The earlier we have accurate information about incoming students for each grade, the better we can plan for a smooth start to the next school year!

Yearbook Delayed

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted our yearbook manufacturer, Lifetouch. As a result, yearbooks will be delayed by 4-6 weeks. At this time, we expect delivery to be mid to late July. Once the yearbooks are ready and delivered we will notify the community with a special one-time newsletter . Please stay tuned for pickup information!
 
If you haven’t ordered your yearbook yet, we have re-opened the site and you can order a copy here . Questions? Contact yearbook@cherrycrest-ptsa.org .

Directory Goes Electronic!

directoryNext year, the Cherry Crest PTSA will make a family directory available through an online service (DirectorySpot). Secure online access to family contact information has been a frequent request from our community. This will let us provide information earlier and update it regularly!

The Bellevue School District will share your directory information with the PTSA if you have approved it. To review your data, including sharing settings, visit ParentVue then:

  • Select “My account” at the top to see the email, address and parent name information.
  • Review the “Student Info” section for each student. If “Exclude from directory” is “N”, your student and family information will appear in the directory.

At the start of the school year you should receive a message to review and update your contact information.
