Running Club: Peace Torch Visit and Marathon Accomplishments
On May 20, runners from the Sri Chinmoy Oneness Home Peace Run spoke to students about their mission of spreading peace around the globe, performed their peace song and joined students for a few laps around the track with the peace torch.  Special thanks to Rupasi Young for including Cherry Crest Elementary on their route for the first time ever!

Congratulations to 5th graders Ender and Parker in Ms. Hemker’s class who both completed a marathon (26.2 miles) and were awarded certificates by Mrs. Stedman in class. Running Club is a free, optional club available to students during lunch recess every day except Wednesday.

Cherry Crest Field Day is Friday, June 10th

Cherry Crest Field Day is Friday, June 10th
After two years of virtual field day activities, students are eager to participate in all the outdoor games and activities during this fun-filled all-school end-of-year event.

It takes close to 100 volunteers before, during, and after this event to make Field Day run smoothly! Please sign up at http://t.ly/Pnoj to volunteer and help us make this end of year event fun for all.

Per BSD policy all volunteers must be approved volunteers (with background checks from within the past three years. See https://bsd405.org/get-involved/volunteer/ for details). Because this is a school-day activity, siblings who are not Cherry Crest students may not attend.
