Math Challenge

The program is completely free and no sign-up is necessary. This is a fantastic opportunity for families to be involved and enjoy math through fun and engaging math problems. All students in Cherry Crest Elementary are invited to participate.

Since Cherry Crest started late for Math Challenge, the first two challenges MC1 and MC2 will be optional.

Grade 4: Staff Appreciation

Attention 4th Grade Families! November is your month for Staff Appreciation!

What is Staff Appreciation? Each year Cherry Crest families show their appreciation for our outstanding educators by volunteering to provide food, beverages, and paper products throughout the school year to help restock the staff room and encourage our teachers with a monthly breakfast. Each Grade is assigned one month to focus their efforts… November is your month!

Sign up to bring items here.

*Most items can be brought in with your child. Deliver them to Mrs. Kramer in the main office on the date you sign up for.
*The first Friday of the month is a breakfast for staff. If you’re able to contribute, please bring in hot items at 7 a.m.

Thank you in advance for helping us carry on this tradition of gratitude! If you have any questions, please e-mail:
