From the APT President
Here we go... the new school year is underway with a bang! School may have just started, but the Cherokee APT Board has been busy for weeks getting ready: school supplies have been delivered, new families and kindergartners welcomed, message boards decorated, and event planning underway. First up -- our Back to School Family Picnic is on Wednesday, September 16th. That's also the date of our first APT Board Meeting. Our meetings are open to all parents, so please plan to join us. It's going to be a great year!
