Dance Festival:  Our annual Dance Festival is Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.!  This will be held on the back field.  Parents may sit on the North and South ends of the cordoned off area.  Please do not sit in the corners of the sections, as our students use those areas to get on and off of the dance area!

Field Day:  Field Day is Wednesday, May 24 9:00-11:00.  This is the last big activity of the year, and we could still use some more volunteers!   Please click here to sign up to volunteer!  Everything is provided; you just show up and supervise the activity!

Yearbooks:  If you purchased a yearbook, they will be coming home on Monday!

Summer Hours:  During the summer months the office will be open on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  This will begin on June 13th.  The library will also be open to check books out on Tuesday during the same hours!

Lunch Charges:  If you have any outstanding lunch charges, the lunchroom would appreciate prompt payment so that they can clear their accounts.  Thank you for your help with this!

Skyward/Class Lists:  Class lists will no longer be posted on the front doors in August.  Parents will need to access Skyward in order to see their child’s 2017-2018 teacher.  These will be posted on Skyward on August 15th.  A letter will be coming home with report cards that gives instructions on how to access Skyward along with your child’s login.  These instructions are also posted on our website.

Lost & Found:  We have collected many coats, hats and gloves that have lost their owners!  Please take the time to stop by the front hallway and check our lost and found if you have a child with a missing item.  All items will be donated to charity on the last day of school!

CHEF News:  Here is our last installment of CHEF News!  Enjoy!  https://youtu.be/ZBq7p8VPXqo

Spirit of Alpine Awards:  Every year Alpine School District recognizes one certified teacher and one classifies employee for their Spirit of Alpine Awards.  Trish Jellen was selected as our teacher of the year.  Mrs. Jellen is an amazing advocate for all of our students and works extremely closely with all of our teachers and staff to help students succeed.  She goes above and beyond what is expected and is such a critical part of Cherry Hill!  Patti Henwoord was honored as our classified employee of the year.  Mrs. Henwood does an outstanding job running our front office and has such a positive, cheerful attitude with all the crazy things in the office!  She is so efficient and is such a great help to any and all!  We love you Mrs. Jellen and Mrs. Henwood!
