A Catalog Tip and Message from our Principal

Have you “favorited” any auction items yet? To favorite, select the heart ♥ associated with any catalog item of interest. Then to quickly see only those items, select the “My Favorites ♥” button from the search and filter menu. If you haven’t yet explored the catalog, tomorrow is a particularly important day as the Community Events category opens for bidding at noon. These are some of the most hotly-contested items each year because they are a ton of fun and in limited supply!  Now, more than ever, we are all craving social and community connection and these events will be a treat to look forward to when we are able to gather once again. So take a peek at those items now, line up any friends that you would like to join you, “♥” the ones you want, and prepare to grab your spot tomorrow at noon sharp!

But before you go, please enjoy the video welcome message from our fearless leader, Principal Dusty Steere.

“Hello Families, my name is Dusty Steere, and I’m privileged to serve as the principal of Cherry Crest Elementary school. This year marks the 50th anniversary of our great school and with spring comes the time-honored tradition of our annual auction supporting staff and programs that allow each and every child to learn and thrive as creators of their future world. Unfortunately, given the circumstances of COVID19 we’re not able to be together for this year’s auction. In fact, schools across the state have been closed for over a month now. But even as the school house doors are closed, the incredible work of educating our children continues, with more energy and dedication than ever. I’m proud of the outstanding efforts that Cherry Crest teachers and staff are making to provide relevant and accessible learning experiences for students. And I’m particularly grateful for the sacrifice and service that you families are making to partner with us educators during these challenging times. Over the next few days, our auction chairs will present families with opportunities to bid on various items all supporting the enhancement of curriculum and educational experiences for our kids. Now more than ever, our collaborative partnership with Cherry Crest PTSA is needed to help our school and educators innovate at levels never seen before. And I want to thank you in advance for your generous participation in this online auction as part of the great cherry crest community. Thank you!”
