After School Classes

ON-SITE AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES

Cherry Crest offers many activities that take place on-site after school, typically 2:30 PM -3:30 PM. Students will go straight from their home room to the activity at dismissal. 

PTSA volunteers and Cherry Crest staff have worked hard to bring additional programming to Cherry Crest after school.  Please deal directly with the vendors whenever possible.

We have attempted to consolidate the vendors here.

  • While we strive for accuracy, prices may vary slightly on the vendor’s website.
  • Location of class may change as needs evolve. Classes will remain on campus.
  • CC/PTSA is not responsible for any payments/reimbursements/conflict resolution.

Using a unique two brain approach in a positive and friendly environment, students are inspired to write and “publish” their own book.  This is a fun and challenging eight week adventure where each student will be an author, editor, and artist “hired” by the publishing company to create their masterpieces. As a company, we will assemble and bind the books creating professional results*.  Students will learn how to use the elements of story building to captivate their readers and enhance their illustrations to make their words come alive.  Their books will be a treasure to cherish.  In a culminating activity, we will have an evening with parents and friends to “Celebrate the Authors”.

*Time will be given in class to write and illustrate their books. Professional results, however, require additional homework as each student continues to work to complete a rough draft, edit for a final draft, and illustrate.
