Volunteers needed Friday, May 13!

As part of Walk-a-thon, several classes won a party in the gym on Friday, May 13. PTSA supplies the activities, but we need volunteers to run the games. Please sign up if you can help during these special celebrations for our students. Questions? E-mail walkathon@cherrycrest-ptsa.org

The Communications Team Needs your help!

The PTSA Communications team has two volunteer openings for the 2022-2023 school year.

We seek a VP for Communications, who oversees the work of the volunteers who assemble the weekly Charger Chatter newsletter, the PTSA website, the Facebook page, and and maintains the online student directory. Time commitment is approximately 2 hours/week. Technical knowledge is not required!

Second, we seek one or more volunteer newsletter editors to assemble the weekly newsletter from news posts on the Cherry Crest PTSA website. The newsletter editor collaborates closely with the PTSA webmasters, ensuring recent news postings are presented in the newsletter as effectively as possible. Preparing the newsletter takes 1-2 hours on the weekend. The skills needed to produce the newsletter from our WordPress website are easy to pick up, so no prior skillset is required.

If you are interested in joining this motivated team of volunteers, please contact VP.1@cherrycrest-ptsa.org.

Spring for Schools with Cherry Crest

Principal Steere invites you to join him at this year’s Spring for Schools luncheon, hosted by the Bellevue Schools Foundation at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue on May 13th.

This year, the Foundation distributed over $800,000 in funding for mental health resources, computer science initiatives, early learning enrollment, music, certification for district educators, classroom innovation, arts enrichment, and more.

Ukraine Fundraiser and Neighborhood Get Together

A few former Cherry Crest students formed a Cherry Crest neighborhood organization. This volunteer organization, Neighboring Ties, assists senior citizens that need help with physical tasks which they may find difficult to do by themselves. Over the last month they have come up with a new idea: A neighborhood fundraiser to support Ukraine.
Their idea was to get the families of the Cherry Crest neighborhood together on the Cherry Crest grounds. They will serve refreshments and request donations to support Ukrainian families. They are collecting donations through GoFundMe – meaning that all money given will be directly wired to the fundraiser of choice, Razom for Ukraine.
