From the APT President
Here we go... our last couple days of school. What a great year we've had! THANK YOU to all families who joined the APT and supported our programs. I am especially grateful for the hard work of our 45-person APT Board who volunteer so many hours to benefit the kids of Cherokee. So many memorable events from this school year are due to your efforts!
Don't forget that we're also planning ahead to NEXT school year. Now is the time to order your School-Pak school supply kits, which will be delivered to school in August. We're also gathering parent interest for a variety of volunteer opportunities for the fall -- see the links to the right to sign up for both.
Have a wonderful summer,
Mary Kay Hanlon

Once again, the APT is offering an online school supply ordering service. Parents can now go online to order school supplies for the 2016-17 school year. School-Pak, Inc. provides this service for our district based on the District 67 developed list for the 2016-17 school year. This program, sponsored by the APT, is totally optional and is meant for your convenience and ease.
Don’t miss out! Place your order by June 10th to receive our district volume discount and free school delivery. All orders after June 10th will include a price increase of approximately 8-9% in addition to a home delivery charge.
All orders will be taken online. This will allow you to order for all of your children in District 67 at the same time. We will not be able to accept any order forms at school. Below is the link that will take you directly to the Lake Forest page for all District 67 schools.
