Walk-a-thon 2018

We are planning a party! Get ready to play! The 2018 Cherry Crest Walk-a-thon or WAT will take place on September 28th, 2018. Back by popular demand, we are planning a Fun Festival after walking. Expect a shorter walking time with more time for games, activities, music, donuts, Indian food and hot dogs! Some of your 5th grade students are planning some fun carnival games for you as well!
 

We had our kick off assembly at school last Friday. Congratulations to Isabel Mpare who created the winning art for the tshirt design! All students will receive a Walk-a-thin shirt prior to the event that can be worn day of! The kids are pumped to collect donations (class that raises the most money gets a silly string party) and to walk lots of laps (class with most students that reach their lap goal get to SLIME Mr. Steere in front of the whole school).

Did you know that 100% of the proceeds from our Walk-a-thon (WAT) event fund the PTSA 2018-2019 school year budget for both our general education students and our advanced learning students. The funds cover things like:

  • Teacher Aides in the classrooms
  • Curriculum Enhancements for all grades and classes
  • Field trips
  • Classroom presenters
  • School wide assemblies
  • Teacher Aides

Please visit the Walkathon webpage for more details and to sign up to help out at the event.

Please email us if you'd like to help or have questions walkathon@cherrycrest-ptsa.org.

Thanks from your co-chairs,
Karin Hargrove and Tobi Kirsch


Volunteer as Classroom Yearbook Photographer

The yearbook is a book of memories to keep for years to come and it can’t be done without your support. Do you love taking pictures, do you love capturing the moment. Sign up before Friday, October 12th to be the Classroom Yearbook Photographer! We are looking for two parent volunteers from each class room.

Some things to remember are:
1. Every photo should capture a subject, action, reaction or emotion.
2. Photos should be of at least two or more children preferably.
3. Photos should be close-up enough that kids' faces are recognizable. They do not have to be looking at the camera, but make sure that faces are clear. You can take either posed or candid shots.
4. Each student in your class should be represented at least once in the photos. It helps to have a (visual) list of all the kids in your class, that way you can easily keep track of who you still need a photo of.
5. Photos should be taken with a good quality, high resolution or SLR camera, and should be high resolution BUT NOT MORE THAN 10MB PER IMAGE.
6. Choose your best 6 to 10 photos and submit into the the one drive link, which we will be providing you with upon signing up.
7. Please submit your best selected pictures by February 15th, 2019. **Location coming soon**

Questions? Email Yearbook Co-Chairs, Priti Parikh and Sarah MPare at yearbook@cherrycrest-ptsa.org
 



Got Five Minutes? Answer the Communications Survey

The PTSA Communications team is a group of volunteers who maintain the PTSA website, deliver a printed family directory in the first part of the school year and publish the weekly Cherry Crest Charger Chatter newsletter!

We'd love your input to improve these various modes of communications and make sure we spend valuable volunteer time wisely. Please take five minutes to answer the PTSA Communications Survey.


Update Student Directory information

At the start of the school year, the PTSA produces a printed directory that we distribute to all families. Get a head start! Check your district contact information and confirm that it is correct for your and your student(s). Visit ParentVue and:
 
  • Review "My account" for correct email, address and parent name information.
  • Review the "Student Information Release" section for each student. If "Exclude from directory" is "N" (don't exclude) your student and family information will appear in the directory. If set to "Y" (exclude) your student's name may appear, but no family or address information will be printed.
To update any information select the "Online Student Verification Tab" at the top of the page.
