Thank You from the PTSA President

Even with all the additional chaos 2021 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We’d even argue that one of the greatest gifts this challenging year has given us was a new perspective on the things we’ve been taking for granted all this time! A new perspective on just how grateful we are for the simplest of things. For this the PTSA would like to thank our comm(UNITY) for supporting each other and our school in so many ways. Thank you to our school professionals for their commitment every day to the students of Cherry Crest, for your dedication to education and organizational excellence in these difficult times and for striving to meet expectations, professionalism and cooperation. Also, I would like to thank our Cherry Crest families for staying connected and supporting students’ education through both in-person and virtual settings. I’m thankful for you showing your appreciation to our teachers, GSAs, and all our school staff. We, as a PTSA family are truly grateful for our comm(UNITY) and give you all our thanks!


Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving,


Yours President
Reetika Saxena

Staff Appreciation for December 3rd: Kindergarten

Each month one grade level of Cherry Crest families shows appreciation for our outstanding educators by providing food and beverages for all teachers and staff. Most items can be sent in with your student to be dropped off in the Main Office.

Parents of Kindergarten students: December is your month! Sign up to participate at bit.ly/30Q2Z7F (due to the short month and upcoming break, all items are needed by December 3rd). Thank you for helping us continue this tradition of gratitude.
