From the APT President
Dear Cherokee Parents,
October means...Spookfest at Cherokee! Our annual Halloween party is always much anticipated and always a ton of fun for both kids and party volunteers. Everyone comes in costume! We need a lot of help to pull off this popular event so please sign up to help out! See the Spookfest section of the website for the flyer.
Our next APT meeting is October 18th in Room 127. Our special guests, Niccole Hannemann and Krisha Yob will be discussing Bridges math curriculum. All parents are welcome!
Let's enjoy the fall season! See you at school.
