From the APT President
Fingers crossed, Spring really is around the corner! Our focus this month is on March Nutrition Month and planning for the remainder of the school year. Time flies at an extra speedy pace after Spring Break, so this is a welcome opportunity to identify how our parent community can help during the spring months and next school year. I am currently recruiting for next year's APT Board. Please see the list of open positions below and email me at email@example.com if you'd like to volunteer or need more information. We would love you to join our team!
Next APT Meeting -- Please join us at for our next APT meeting on Wednesday, April 22 from 9:30-11am in the Cherokee IRC.
Mrs. Lesley Fisher from the District 67 Board of Education will be our guest speaker. See you then!
Thinking sunny thoughts,
Mary Kay Hanlon
