Welcome from the PTSA President

Dear Cherry Crest Parents,

On behalf of the Cherry Crest PTSA, I would like to welcome you to the new thrilling and exciting year of school and a new year of PTSA. Hoping this year to see everyone in person, we are really excited to be working with you and our wonderful teachers and staff at Cherry Crest to give our students the best possible school year experience, while keeping our mission in mind: “to positively impact the lives of children and families.”

Together at Cherry Crest, we support this mission through wide-ranging efforts: supporting school and district programs, supporting the school community through family events, and giving direct help to the teachers and staff at Cherry Crest. Our main goal as a PTSA is to find ways to keep our comm(UNITY) strong. This will be a challenge for this year too, but also the best use of our efforts.

We are looking forward to continuing the partnership we have established with the Bellevue School District, our lovely Principal, Mr. Steere, and our amazing teachers and staff. We will continue to enhance an already excellent learning experience for our children with the support of our members. We make sure that every funding item to school is for instructional aides for each grade level. In addition to instructional aides, we are working with teachers and getting creative with Curriculum Enhancement. The details are still being worked out, but each grade level will have something to look forward to, provided by the PTSA.

Please look for emails and updates about our Cherry Crest comm(UNITY) including the date of our first General membership meeting and information about joining the PTSA. While all Cherry Crest families are welcome at PTSA meetings and PTSA sponsored events, we encourage everyone to formally join our PTSA to vote on our budgets and elect our leadership when signups open. Looking forward to an interesting and fun-filled year!
