PTSA Meeting Update

We held our last General Meeting of the year on Tuesday, May 12. Our main business was the election of our new officers and to approve a budget for next year.  With so much uncertainty it was hard to make decision for budgeting for next year. We made our best attempt knowing that in Sept much will likely change, and we can revise as necessary then.  Next years officers are listed below. We discussed plans for some spring events, look for the New Family Night to be scheduled in the Fall (hopefully), Time Capsule opening will happen sometime next year, new plans are being thought up for honoring our 5th graders as they move up to Middle School.

Our elected officers for next year are as follows:

Co-President –  Britt Heath
Co-President – Deepa Panchapakesan
Treasurer – Dave Fandel
Assistant Treasurer – Mrudani Chidre
Secretary – Ksenia Tshahhirov
VP Curriculum Enhancement – Erin Miller
VP Communications – Neha Bhuta
VP – Peggy Yu
VP – Sarit Egozi
VP– Alison Payne

Cherry Crest at Regional Spelling Bee

Congratulations to 3rd grader Tejas Atreya Prakash, who represented Cherry Crest in the King County Regional Spelling Bee on Saturday, February 29.  Tejas was in the top ten spellers at the Regional Bee, correctly spelling “timber,” “expugnable,” and “radix.”  This competition allows students up to eighth grade, so Tejas’ performance is especially impressive, and we are very proud of him!
