From the APT President
Dear Cherokee Parents,
Welcome back to school, Cheetah families, and welcome to our APT website! I hope it is a useful resource for you. New families, please see the special page of our website just for you.
See the SAVE THE DATE section for important back-to-school information and always check the "APT Thanks" section to see who has been coordinating all our activities. Our dedicated volunteer parents make a huge positive impact on our school environment - can't thank them enough!
It is a privilege for me to serve our school community as your Cherokee APT president. I'm looking forward to a fantastic 2017-18 school year!
Hope to see you at our first APT meeting Sept. 20th, 9:30 am in Room 127. All parents are welcome!
