Shout-out to Volunteer – Elena Razmpoosh

This shout-out is for an amazing CE team member, Elena Razmpoosh, Ariana (Kindergarten) & Kiana (Grade 5th) mother. Elena is an integral CE team member for both Kindergarten and Grade-5 and has shown incredible skills in organizing amazing field trips for both grades. Each field trip requires her to make arrangements with vendors, fill out BSD forms and keep teachers in communication, and her skill at executing these tasks are really commendable. Cherry Crest PTSA is proud of her and the value she brings to the community. Keep up the great work, Elena!

K-2 Author/Illustrator visit coming up March 23rd

On Thursday March 23rd local author/illustrator Ellie Peterson will be presenting to all K-2 classrooms in three separate presentations in the library.  We are lucky enough (thank you BSF!) to have Ellie two years in a row at our school. 

Ellie often specializes in books that focus on science, including the topics of monarch butterflies, honeybees, our seasons and our planet earth.  Some students will also experience an “Eat With Ellie” lunch in the library where they can find out more about what it’s really like to work as an author/illustrator and ask more in-depth questions. Want to know more?  Visit her website:     https://www.elliepetersonart.com/

*Look for a paper coming home next week if you would like to preorder one of her books to have signed and personalized for your student.

Thank you for supporting our Spring Scholastic Book Fair

It was truly wonderful to see the excitement on the kids’ faces when entering the library and seeing all of the books set up and library turned into a rainbow of books, journals, posters, pens, etc.  In addition, thanks to those of you who chose to purchase a PencilGram or round up your change at the register when purchasing. These proceeds benefit our BSD ‘sister school’ Sherwood Forest in the form of books for their library. 

Cherry Crest Chargers are truly amazing to work and go to school with!

-Mrs. Lux (C. Crest Librarian) & Britt Heath (Book Fair Chair)
