Foundation Update 11/6/2012

Hello Cheremoya Parents,

We have been busy here at the Cheremoya Foundation this semester!  If you’ve joined us recently, you know of the many great projects we have coming up.  Here’s a list of what we hope to accomplish by next semester… yes, NEXT SEMESTER!! That’s a big deal on the limited resources and current parent involvement we have. We need more help.  We need YOUR help!  If any of these projects sound interesting to you, and you’d like to participate and help get more programs into our school, please come talk to us.

  • New book donation for each student from the Foundation (books already ordered.)
  • Samsung Tablets for each classroom (teachers to sign off on which model/keyboard will be the best fit.)
  • Wine Tasting Fundraiser/Rally Dec. 2 @ Beachwood Cafe – Save The Date!
  • P.E. returns to Cheremoya! Cheremoya Foundation is bringing in the YMCA to get a Physical Education class back into the school. 55 minutes per class, per week, single day for every grade level.
  • SOAR returns – the SOAR program is doubling, not simply returning. SOAR part 1 is the currently running Drama program for grades 4-6. SOAR part 2 brings the Visual Arts back to the school to all grades! Cheremoya Foundation has partnered with the Hollywood Arts Council to bring the ARTS back to Cheremoya.

We encourage all parents to come check out what we are doing.  Join our mailing list to be kept up-to-date on events and upcoming meetings. Hope to see you there. Be a part of the change!

 Did you know…?

“Art, music and physical education have already suffered tremendous cut backs in scheduling and even program elimination in some cases due to the No Child Left Behind emphasis on math and reading.”  Read more in this article.

 Did you know…?

The LAUSD Elementary Arts Program is scheduled for a 100 percent cut for 2012-2013. Read more about it here and here.

Did you know that? If you did, than please spread the word and join us to help get those programs back to Cheremoya!
