From the APT President
As these last few weeks of the year zip by (and they do!,) I'd like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all who have participated in our APT programs and events so far. I know you are all very busy and I truly appreciate the time you spend to make our Cherokee experience the best it can be... for the children, for the teachers, and for our parent community. It is wonderful to see everyone working together!
On behalf of the APT, I wish everyone a warm and cozy holiday season.
Enjoy making memories!
Mary Kay Hanlon

APT In Action!
Parents, you are the "face" of the APT. Thank you for all you do! Here are some photos of the many experiences we have brought to Cherokee this year:
Candy and HUGS Food Drive Thanks
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the Candy Drive and HUGS Food Drive in the month of November! Thanks to your generosity both drives were very successful. The Candy Drive collected 1,288 pounds of candy community-wide of which 860 pounds was from District 67 in partnership with Girl Scout Troop 41711. Cherokee's families alone contributed over 450 food items to the HUGS drive!
The caring spirit of District 67 certainly shone brightly and your donations will be greatly appreciated by the recipients. We hope, in addition, these service opportunities gave families a chance to provide conversation around their dinner table, in the car line, at the bus stop or before bed about community service drives such as these. Thank you to our APT Community Service Reps -- Ingrid Prieditis, Camille Stohlgren and Katie Ford -- for leading the effort.
