On-Site After School Enrichment Classes

Cherry Crest will be offering a number of After School Classes and Clubs during the year, often in 6-8 week sessions. This year the clubs, dates, and times are not yet finalized due to issues related to space and building scheduling. In the past these clubs have included Magic, Drama, Clay Animation, Lego, Flag Football, and Spanish. It is unknown what clubs will be offered this year.

When these clubs are finalized, we will advertise sign-ups on the website as well as in the Chatter.

Cherry Crest Field Day is Friday, June 10th

After two years of virtual field day activities, students are eager to participate in all the outdoor games and activities during this fun-filled all-school end-of-year event.

It takes close to 100 volunteers before, during, and after this event to make Field Day run smoothly! Please sign up at http://t.ly/Pnoj to volunteer and help us make this end of year event fun for all.

Per BSD policy all volunteers must be approved volunteers (with background checks from within the past three years. See https://bsd405.org/get-involved/volunteer/ for details). Because this is a school-day activity, siblings who are not Cherry Crest students may not attend.

Volunteer Appreciation Coffee
