This allows us to send our wonderful students on exciting and educational field trips, bring in guest speakers and give them annual events such as our Fall Festival, Wellness Adventure and Field Day! Our students look so forward to this fundraiser, earning prizes, and collecting the "stackables"! 

Please join us on September 13, 2018, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. for our Learning Cafe. This is going to be an exciting evening for our parents to enjoy information about their child’s day at Cherry Drive Elementary. All parents and students will go to their child’s classrooms to learn about state standards as well as homework tips. It will be a super evening!

We will also be holding a couple of different volunteer trainings for any parents, guardians or family members that would like to volunteer in their child's classroom or chaperone field trips. This is only a one time training so if you have already done it, you do not need to do it again. The trainings are quick and approximately 15-20 minutes. They will be on September 6, 2018 at 8:00am and September 13, 2018 at 3:30pm.

Thank you for all of your support and for sharing your amazing children with us. We are committed to providing quality instruction for each and every one of our students at Cherry Drive Elementary. If you have any questions, please call feel free to call me at 720-972-5300.
