Welcome to the new school year!
A note from the APT President
I have always loved the beginning of the school year – as a student, as a teacher, and now as a parent. There’s something wonderful about the fresh start and possibilities. So after a summer of “recharging,” the school year begins. Many parents on the APT board have been busy already… Delivering school supplies to classrooms. Preparing bulletin boards. Scheduling lunch helpers. Welcoming new families. Recruiting room parents. Hosting Kindergarten play dates. As the saying goes, "It takes a village!"
We are also working on some events you won’t want to miss, starting with our Back to School Family Picnic on Wednesday, September 17th. Please add it to your calendars! Details are below.
You are invited to attend our first APT Board Meeting, also on Wednesday, September 17th, starting at 9:30 a.m. in the IRC. Mrs. Jackson will be sharing information on the Inspiration Block efforts and other news at Cherokee. See the APT Info & Forms page for more information.
It’s an exciting time to be a Cheetah. This year more than ever, we are anticipating great things to come. Welcome back!
