Room 18 News

  • Dear Families,


    Happy New Year, and thank you for the lovely holiday gifts!  I hope you all had a fabulous break and enjoyed all of the wet weather!  Zachary got sick at the beginning of break, so we had a quiet Christmas with just our family.  We managed to escape to Tahoe for half of the break.  It was the kids' second time there, and they thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the rainy weather and icy snow :)  


    The stormy weather is supposed to continue all week long, so we will be indoors for before school, morning, and lunch recesses.  Our school also has a plan for if the power goes out and we will not send students home in the event that happens.  Please drive carefully and stay safe during the storms.


    Holiday Waste Drive

    Cherry Chase’s Zero Waste team is hosting a Holiday Waste drive! Americans produce 43% more waste during the annual holiday season.  With this waste drive, we aim to help our community maximize the amount of waste we divert from the landfill.


    Cherry Chase will be collecting used cardboard boxes and used bubble wrap.  The cardboard boxes will be donated to Goodwill and the bubble wrap will be going to SCRAP- a non-profit creative reuse center.


    There will be two designated places to drop the donations outside Room 32 (Fun Zone). We will be collecting all next week December 19th-23rd and during the week we return from winter break Monday, January 9th- Wednesday, January 11th.


    Have a wonderful week!
