From the APT President
Our APT theme this year is Commitment...I can't think of a more committed group of people than our Cherokee parents! August and September truly create a whirlwind of activity at school - there is so much going on! As September reaches a close, it is good to look back on the start of school and recognize the effort put forth by so many to ensure our children are off to a great start. I am continually filled with gratitude for our hard working, dedicated staff and for our enthusiastic, supportive parents. Our children benefit from this commitment!
Thank you to all who attended our first APT meeting - hope you found it informative! Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 19th in Room 127 at 9:30 am. All parents are welcome to attend.
