From the APT President
Thank you, Cheetah families, for your support of our district-wide HUGS food drive. We were able to provide Thanksgiving meals to hungry Lake County families with your donations. Cathy Montanari and Michelle Yousuf did a great job coordinating the effort at Cherokee.
Our children enjoyed a day spent with renowned children's book author Candace Fleming on November 10th thanks to a grant from the Spirit of 67. Christy Miks and Colleen Berto assisted Ms. Fleming during her time at our school. Reminder: Spirit of 67 grants are due January 26th!
Please put on your baking mitts and help us provide homemade or store bought cookies and treats for the very popular staff appreciation Cookie Walk on December 14th. If you'd like to help, please contact coordinators Kristen Lee and Monica Yaun.
We enjoyed hearing from CROYA manager Todd Nahigian at our last meeting. It is great to see the programming and support for 7-12 graders that we have on offer in our town!
No meeting in December, see you in January.
Have a wonderful Winter Break!

Everyone likes receiving gifts! All Cherokee families should have received a new Cheetah paw print car magnet at the Walk-Throughs. This is a new design! We hope you are all enjoying this gift!
In addition to the car magnets, a gift for our teachers and staff was purchased. New dishes, flatware and other kitchen items were provided for the teachers' lounge. Just another way to thank all of those that lead our children everyday.
