Fundraising

WHY DO WE FUNDRAISE?

Basic education funding by the State of Washington continues to rank as one of the lowest in the country. In the Bellevue School District, budget problems are overcome with levies and fundraising. Local PTSA at individual schools play a key role in helping their community by funding local needs at each school. 

Cherry Crest PTSA mission is to serve as a resource to unify parents, teachers, students and the community to support our Cherry Crest staff. We provide outstanding educational enhancement opportunities for every child and work on building a strong community.In particular over the years we have been able to

  • Consistently provide funds to the school for a significant number of Instructional Support Hours in the classroom at every grade level, providing more one to one instruction opportunities.
  • Funds the entire Curriculum Enhancement, an exceptional teacher-led program that allows every child to benefit from many unique experiences, at school or at field trips, at no additional cost to the families.
  • …and so much more!

 How ? 3 fundraising events are spread out during the school year to allow families to plan and donate accordingly to their capabilities. 

1. Walk-A-Thon – October 4th 2019, 2:30 – 6:00 pm | Students walk and collect pledges! The Walk is followed by an All Family Fun Carnival open and free for all to participate. 

2. Read-A-Thon – Nov 27th – Dec 1st 2019 | Students read and collect pledges! 

3. Cherry Crest Annual Auction – April 25th 2020 @ 6th PM, Hilton Bellevue | Adult only, community building event for parents, teachers, and staff. 

Our objective is to have 100% participation from all families so save the dates and plan your donations accordingly! The long-standing generous contributions from our parents have helped make Cherry Crest – and the outcomes our children enjoy – the pride of our community. Your support to our fundraising efforts is critical to maintaining Cherry Crest Elementary School’s level of excellence.
