School buildings may be closed, but Cherry Crest parents, teachers, and administrators will keep our students learning and community engaged. The Chatter newsletter will continue arriving weekly.

Do you need help using Teams and other school technology platforms? Do you need assistance with food supplies or childcare? Are you looking for ways to help others at the school or take action for our students? Find links to these and other resources on the PTSA website !
Congratulations Cherry Crest Communications Team!!
Our Cherry Crest Communications team has been awarded two Washington State PTA Awards of Excellence

Outstanding Newsletter - Bronze
Outstanding Website - Bronze

Thank you to our Communications team for helping keep our Community informed and engaged! Our new website that was launched in the Fall looks fabulous! And the award is well deserved for the team's hard work to launch a new site. The weekly newsletters are a lot of work and we appreciate what the Communications team does behind the scenes to keep us up-to-date on what is happening at school!  Thank you and Congratulations!!
Final Yearbook Orders Due by Friday, June 5th
We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the auction team to use their platform for collecting orders and payments from anyone who missed the yearbook pre-ordering window.

If you missed ordering a yearbook through Lifetouch earlier this year, please visit https://yearbooksale.cherrycrest-ptsa.org to place your order by Friday, June 5th.

Information about yearbook distribution will be coming in a future newsletter. Note: There will be no additional copies available for purchase this school year although a few may be available in the fall at a higher price if supplies are available.
Seeking New Website Editor for 2020-2021
Join the PTSA Communications team as the website editor! The website editor manages the content on the PTSA website and posts articles on a weekly basis that inform the Charger Chatter newsletter.

Articles are submitted by various sources throughout the school (teachers, the librarian, committee leads, etc.) to keep the school community informed. External sources also submit articles to increase awareness of their activities (lessons, community events, Bellevue School District, etc). 

No technical skills are needed but it’s good to have an eye for what makes an article relevant and properly written. The work can be done from home and on your own time. If you are interested, please contact  editor@cherrycrest-ptsa.org .
Bellevue Schools Foundation
Bellevue Schools Foundation Asks for Your Help
Will you help us meet the needs of our most vulnerable children and their families in the Bellevue School District? 

The developments around COVID-19 have upended every student and every teacher at every school. Thankfully, BSF is uniquely positioned to support our District during this crisis. BSF raises money to fundamentally enhance and innovate in the district. Currently we are:

  • Providing funding for mental health counselors to reach students suffering from the effects of isolation and the challenges of distance learning
  • Funding on-line educational platforms so all students can continue their classroom work
  • Providing support for District staff caring for children of first responders, healthcare workers and frontline Covid-19 fighters
  • Continuing to fund our exemplary programs to ensure our students maintain their academic excellence once they return to the classroom

Please donate today to support our students and families during this crisis. Any amount you give helps. Gifts of $1,000 or more will be matched until May 31, 2020. We are Still All in for Kids!
