Meet Our General School Assistants General School Assistants (GSAs) - Extra Support for All Students! Every year Cherry Crest employs General School Assistants (GSAs) to assist arrivals/dismissals, facilitate recess, supervise in the lunch room and provide classroom support. Thanks to GSAs, students get more 1:1 instruction opportunities allowing for greater differentiation whether it’s to accelerate or reinforce learning. This invaluable support impacts educational growth as well as student well-being.Bellevue School District funds four General School Assistants at Cherry Crest. Through the generous support of our Comm(unity), Cherry Crest PTSA funds an additional three GSAs. We invite you to meet them!
