Bellevue Schools Foundation enhances learning for Cherry Crest Students.  Computer Science. STEM. Social Emotional Learning. Arts, Enrichment & Innovation Grants. Music support. These programs and many more make our District stand apart as a model of excellence in public education. Part of the support for programs that distinguish our school every day is because parents like you join forces to make a collective impact through Bellevue Schools Foundation. Together, parent leaders and community members enable the Foundation to make targeted investments that bring innovative programs, equipment, and experiences to students at our school, and to the entire district.

When it comes to ensuring that your child—and every Bellevue School District student— enjoy leading edge, engaging and effective educational programming, contributing to Bellevue Schools Foundation is an easy choice. I hope you’ll consider donating both to the Foundation and to our school’s PTSA this fall. Your contribution translates directly to programming that elevates and enriches education districtwide. Whether you can give $5 or $500, your investment makes a difference for your child, every day.
