From the APT President
Welcome to the Cherokee APT website!
I am so excited to be serving as Cherokee’s APT President for the 2020-2022 school years! This is my 7th year at Cherokee after moving into the area 6 years ago. Over these past 6 years, we have come to love Cherokee like a second home – it is a truly special place!
This year will be like no other, and I am looking forward to further developing the relationships between our parents, staff, and teachers as we move through this uncharted territory together. Building a strong community of support will serve us well in years to come!
The role of the APT in District 67 is “to promote good communication and cooperative working relationships among the community, school and home.” We are not a fundraising organization; our membership dues go toward providing the District-wide Student Directory and funding various events and projects throughout the year. Please stay tuned as we flex our creative muscles this year to figure out new ways to celebrate our students and staff!
Please consider joining our APT meetings, which are held the 3rd Wednesday of most months during the school year. Stay up-to-date by signing up for the Cherokee Newsletter and keep an eye on the APT section for meeting times. We are working with parents to determine the best times for meetings due to the schedule challenges facing many of us right now!
Reach out to me at any time if you have questions, suggestions or comments on APT activities. We have a lot of ways to get involved as well; email me if you have any interest in serving on any of our many committees!
Thank you for checking out the website! I’m looking forward to collaborating in the months ahead!
