Supporting Students, Teachers, and Families

HSC Executive Board

Nhu-y Nguyen

HSC President

Hi Charger Families! I am mom of two - one is heading off to middle school and the other is a 4th grader in the Mandarin Immersion Program. I have been on the board for 6 years and stepping on shoulders of past Presidents to lead our HSC this upcoming school year. I am looking forward to collaborating with our board, volunteers, parents, and Cherrywood staff to bring fun events back on campus, as well as support the needs of our students and staff. Can't wait to meet you!

Emily Ho

HSC Treasurer

I am a mom of 3, a 7th grader at Piedmont Middle (alumni to Cherrywood), 4th grader and 2nd grader (both in the Cherrywood Mandarin Immersion program). As Treasurer of the Cherrywood Home & School Club, I have seen the growth of our parent and teacher community over the last few years and I am so thankful for the generosity and support from all families. Looking forward to another great school year 2022-23!

Jessica Quintero

HSC and M.I.P.A.C. Secretary

I am the mom of 3rd and 1st grade girls in the Mandarin Immersion program. I was tricked, talked, into joining M.I.P.A.C. as their secretary last school year, only to enjoy every moment of it. The camaraderie between parents and staff made me come back for more this school year, which led me to volunteer as the HSC Secretary on top of being the M.I.P.A.C. Secretary.

My greatest wish is to see HSC filled to the brim with parents who wish to volunteer alongside my fellow board members and I. This is the only way to see even greater things happen at Cherrywood. I can't wait to see this wish fulfilled in upcoming months.

M.I.P.A.C. Board

The Mandarin Immersion Parent Advisory Committee (M.I.P.A.C.) guides and supports the development of the Mandarin Immersion program. Parents and school administrators meet monthly to organize and propose events and activities that advance academic and Chinese cultural learning at Cherrywood.

Lingkai Zuo

M.I.P.A.C. Chair

Hello! I am a father of two girls: 4th grader at Cherrywood Elementary and a transitional kindergartener. I have been living in the Berryessa area for the last 12 years. I love being outdoors: running, camping, and backpacking. This past summer (2022), my family went camping four times. The visit to Glacier National Park is a great trip. Currently, I am working for Amazon Web Services.

Betty Chen

M.I.P.A.C. Vice Chair

This is my third year serving MIPAC. I have 2 children in the Mandarin Immersion Program, 2nd and 5th grade. It is an honor to serve and support our Cherrywood MI students. I look forward to another fantastic school year!
