From the APT President
Winter is really clipping along -- haven't we had fun so far? Despite the Groundhog's pessimism, our cheetahs are enjoying the snow on the playground and are in no hurry for Winter to end. We are especially thankful for our fabulous Winterfest party team for a fun evening of dancing in the dark! Check out the party photos on our APT Events page.
Next APT Meeting -- Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, February 18th, 9:30-11am in the IRC as we welcome Superintendent of Schools Mike Simeck as our guest speaker. If you have not had the opportunity to hear Mike speak, I strongly recommend that you come as he always has interesting news and information to share. See you then!
