First Grade and Kindergarten Return Next Week

The Building Safety and Health Conditions Review Team for Cherry Crest met on February 24, 2021 to conduct a review of health and safety conditions both in the building and in the larger community in order to determine whether or not to expand existing in-person services by another grade-band level at this time. As a result of our meeting, we voted to start in-person services for 1st grade this Monday, March 1st and for Kindergarten this Thursday, March 4.

PTSA Meeting is Tue, March 9th, 6:45 PM

Please join us at our Cherry Crest PTSA General Membership meeting, Tuesday March 9th, via Microsoft Teams.

This month we have the Bellevue Education Association (BEA) representatives from Cherry Crest joining us. Heather Depaola, 1st grade and Patricia Gilbert, 3rd grade to talk about the BEA and their role with teachers at Cherry Crest.

We will also be voting on the PTSA leadership slate for 2020-2021! All PTSA members are especially encouraged to attend to participate in the vote.

BSD Family Engagement Survey

The Bellevue School District is conducting a survey on family engagement in order to strengthen relationships between schools and families. Creating meaningful partnerships with parents helps students succeed both academically and socially. When families engage, student attitudes and behavior are more positive, attendance is better, there are more opportunities to honor diverse cultural backgrounds, and open communication allows us to learn from each other.
