WELCOME MESSAGE FROM PTSA PRESIDENT

On behalf of the Cherry Crest PTSA, I wanted to welcome you to the ‘22-’23 school year. If you’re anything like me, you were probably figuring out lunches at the last minute and wiping away a tear or two (our tears, not our kids’) as you sent your child(ren) on their way to another year of growing up. And of course, the prerequisite first day of school pictures:).

We’re really excited about this upcoming school year and hope you are too!  

The PTSA focuses on 3 pillars and you’ll continue to hear these themes in the activities and programs we’ll plan (sneak peek of upcoming events via the PTSA calendar): 

  • Academic rigor and student excellence

  • Family connection and community

  • Health and well-being 

From events like the Spelling Bee, Family Stem Night, Grade-level Dinners, a Used Book Fair, and much more – we hope to bring the community closer together and most importantly, enrich the experience of our students and families. 

New this year, we are introducing grade-level PTSA ambassadors, who can help answer your questions and connect you with other families in your grade. They’re a great resource for new and veteran Cherry Crest families alike. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities and a way to make a difference in your child’s school, we’d love to hear from you. Thank you to all those who have already signed up to volunteer! 

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming school event and the general PTSA meeting on September 29th at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to attend and all members can vote.   

If there’s anything we can help with, don’t hesitate to reach out. Welcome to the ‘22-’23 Cherry Crest School Year – it’s going to be great!

Jessica Wang

Volunteering at Cherry Crest

In order to volunteer at Cherry Crest, you need a background check.  These last for 3 years and you will be notified when it is time to renew.  This is needed to volunteer in the class, library and at PTSA events.After completing a background check, look for opportunities in these places:
    • PTSA can help connect you to opportunities using this form.
    • Teachers, especially in lower grades may have opportunities to sign up to come into the class to help out.
    • We are developing a volunteer pool to reach out to for events and when help is needed.  Once you have your background check approved, please email vp.1@cherrycrest-ptsa.org to be added to the pool.  You will be contacted when we need volunteers, but can choose at that time if it works for you.
    • Look to the chatter for opportunities (like the library volunteer opportunity below)
