NEW!! Staff Appreciation Week is May 6-10

What is Staff Appreciation?
Each year Cherry Crest families show their appreciation for our outstanding teachers and staff by volunteering to provide food, beverages and paper products throughout the school year. Each Grade level is assigned one month (November-April) to focus their efforts and many items can be delivered by your child.  Thank you for your contributions!

Sock and Book Drive

Because Kindness Counts and Cherry Crest is always of for a book drive, we are collecting socks for Friends of Youth and books for a group of Newport High students who are supporting King County kids in need of books.

A donation box will be near the front office. Both socks and books can go in the same box.

New Socks:

Homeless and foster youth, supported by Friends of Youth, are always in need of socks. Help our students start off with their best foot forward with new socks.THANK YOU.

 

Books: In good condition

Newport Highschool students have formed "Seattle Advocates". They are working to address early literacy by collecting books for Page Ahead and some of our Title 1 Schools. Cherry Crest kids are prolific readers, and we are excited to help pass on books to the next generation of book worms.
