As we are in the home stretch of the school year, we have been hosting activities to bring closure to the school year. I hope everyone who attended our International Children's Day celebration had a wonderful time celebrating all the students of our school community. SJ Councilmember Cohen and Boardmember Boac came to celebrate our school community with us. They were especially impressed by the wide range of student talent that was showcased throughout the evening. On the main stage, we also were able to acknowledge with plaques the very generous donations from Sam's Construction, Jack Zhao, and KZ Cabinets for the newly remodeled Kid's Kitchen in the MPR. It looks amazing! The Kid's Kitchen will be a great support to classroom projects that include food prep. A BIG thank you to Miranda Kim for coordinating this event along with her planning committee and the many volunteers, both leadership students and parents, who made this event a smashing success! This was the largest family event of the whole year! Be on the look out for more family events coming up next year monthly and get ready to be a part of our volunteer team. Any help is always appreciated. These events can't happen without parent volunteers.
This past week we were also able to celebrate Reading at Cherrywood with our Accelerated Reader Reading milestone awards. Students were awarded their milestone prizes. Check out the names of all of our Marquee Readers in this newsletter. We had so many names that they would not all fit on the marquee before the end of the school year so we told students we would post their names in the newsletter and on the Spirit Assembly slides that all students will see next Friday. Most importantly, however, we just enjoyed being able to celebrate the joy of reading. Please encourage your child to set reading goals this summer. Please see below for more information about the Summer Reading program sponsored by the SJ Public Library. Read, Read, Read this summer!
Finally, I would like to congratulate our 5th graders who will be promoting to 6th grade on Thursday, 6/8, at 9AM. More details have been sent to parents. They have worked hard to get to this point in their educational journey. We wish our 5th graders the best as they move on to the next phase of their learning journey. Remember, once a Cherrywood Charger, always a Cherrywood Charger! Congratulations on your promotion!
