PTA

Dear Parents,

For the SAFETY AND SECURITY OF OUR STUDENTS, please remember that between the hours of 8:30 and 2:40pm, ALL VISITORS are required to sign in at the school office and get a VISITORS PASS, or remain in the office.  Due to the large numbers of people who are bypassing the office, the doors to the school are locked everyday at 2pm.  If you need to get in please call (510) 723-3810 or knock.  Thank you for helping us keep your kids safe.

Sincerely,

Mr. Itoco Garcia

Principal

Parents will receive a free TB test and the special PSA designation that will allow them to work on projects for teachers and be present at the school as long as they are accompanied by a staff member.  PSA's will also take GED and other parent training courses.

Equal Access For All School Policy

Cherryland Elementary School is committed to providing equal access to parents of disabled and English Learner (EL) students to all information, services, meetings, and curriculum the school has to offer, in any home language other than English, and for any accomadation or modification necessary. 

PTA FINGERPRINTING SCHOLASRSHIP

In order to support the school,  our wonderful PTA raised over $10,000 in November and December.  The PTA if offering scholarships for people who wish to volunteer, but can't pay the fee to get fingerprinted.  The PTA is offering 3 scholarships per classroom, and will pay $41 of the $61 it takes.  Please see your child's teacher if you are interested in a scholarship so the you can become a Cherryland volunteer.  

To receive a scholarship, you must agree to be available to chaperone field trips and help at events in all classrooms at Cherryland.  We really need your help and support to continue to improve our school and take our students on wonderful, educational field trips.  So far this year we have not had to cancel any field trips due to a lack of volunteers, but the school board requires us to have a minimum number of volunteers and staff on each trip.  The more volunteers we have, the more trips we can take.
