Win Principal for a Day!

Join Cherry Crest PTSA by Friday, October 20th for a chance to win Principal for a Day for your student/s!  One lucky member will be drawn, and their student/s will get to “rule the school” with Mrs. Stedman.

They will start planning the day’s work, likely visit classrooms, and determine how best to support the school. The Principal for a Day will enjoy lunch and recess monitoring and planning for an upcoming assembly. What a memorable day! The boss will go home with a fresh perspective and a signed certificate commending their hard work!

Movie Night: Super Mario Bros.

Join us in the school cafeteria on Friday, October 20th for our first Family Movie Night of the year! Doors will open at 5:45pm, with Super Mario Bros. starting promptly at 6:00pm.

Concessions available for pre-sale until 10/18 and during the event. Make sure to bring a blanket & pillow for comfy seating. Students must be accompanied by an adult; this is not a drop off event.
