Every Cherry Crest Elementary School student will be supplied with the instructional materials (e.g. textbooks, workbooks, paper, pencils, crayons, etc.) necessary for their academic success. We recognize children often like to bring their own supplies to supplement what we provide at school. Items you may choose to send with your child will be shared with the rest of the class, and help us stretch school resources further. Thank you in advance for sending any or all of these suggested supplies to school. Your contributions promote all children’s academic success.
