Dear Cherry Crest Parents,

Welcome to the last week of the school year! There are few years we are as grateful to have behind us as this one. Thank you to our amazing community for making it through this challenge together!

Thanks to your generous donations we have continued to provide Cherry Crest students with additional General School Assistants to help in virtual classrooms and in person at school. Curriculum Enhancement Activities this year were a bit different but we were still able to have fun and engaging activities for every grade (ToyMaker, Animal Encounters, Nature Vision, Pacific Science Center, Author Visit for storytelling and writing workshop).

Cherry Crest is lucky to have so many parents who care and contribute to making it such a unique and successful school. While everything this year has been “beind the scences” we know you were still helping in the classrooms, with fundraisers, yearbook, pictures, the directory, enrichment activities as well as so many other unseen helping hands, from home and during late evening hours. We are ever so GRATEFUL to be part of such comm(UNITY) and we THANK YOU all!

A huge thank you to our wonderful Executive Committee members – Dave Fandel, Peggy Yu, Alison Payne, Lubdha Khandelwal, Sarit Egozi, Erin Miller, Ksenia Tschahhirov, and Neha Bhuta for their dedication and willingness to serve our Comm(Unity) this year!

We would like to give a special thank you to our Communication Team, who EVERY WEEK delivers to you the Chatter, updates the PTSA website and keeps the PTSA Facebook page up to date. Thank you, Heather Sherman, Charanya Madan, Di Wang, Amy Karlson, and Vasu Jain!

On behalf of the Cherry Crest PTSA, we wish you a very great summer! Good luck to our 5th graders getting ready for the middle school adventure and looking forward to meeting new students and families joining us in the fall, in person!

Yours,
Britt Heath and Reetika Saxena
