From the APT President
Happy New Year to our Cheetah families! 2016 is off to a great start for the APT:
we have our first-ever Visiting Scientist program as well as our highly anticipated Winterfest party to round out the month. Check out the details to the right.
Next APT Meeting -- Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, January 20th, 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the IRC as we welcome wellness teacher Martha Sostre as our guest speaker. Mrs. Sostre is not only a kids fitness expert, she is also the coach of championship teams, notably the Deer Path cross country team. We look forward to spending some time with her outside the gym.
Please join us!

APT Visiting Scientist Program
We are excited for the Visiting Scientist program which kicks off with grades 3 & 4 workshops on January 13, followed by a K-2 assembly on January 19. This new APT program is the result of a grant written by parents Camille Stohlgren and Wiebke Droege and generously funded by the Spirit of 67. Ask your little scientists what they learn!
