Please Send Your Kids with Masks

Students are using many school-supplied disposable masks. Please remember to send your child to school with a mask every day and include a spare in your child’s backpack.

Please also consider donating a box of disposable children’s masks to your classroom and/or the front office. Thank you for supporting the health of our community!

Staff Appreciation for December 3rd: Kindergarten

Each month one grade level of Cherry Crest families shows appreciation for our outstanding educators by providing food and beverages for all teachers and staff. Most items can be sent in with your student to be dropped off in the Main Office.

Parents of Kindergarten students: December is your month! Sign up to participate at bit.ly/30Q2Z7F (due to the short month and upcoming break, all items are needed by December 3rd). Thank you for helping us continue this tradition of gratitude.

Lost and Found Is Overflowing!
