A MESSAGE FROM THE APT EXECUTIVE BOARD PRESIDENT
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year quickly approaching!! The APT is excited to welcome you to District 67. The District 67 APT works to enhance the educational experience through school-based programs, organized and implemented by parent volunteers. These programs are predominantly funded by APT dues. District 67 schools include Cherokee, Everett, and Sheridan elementary schools, as well as Deer Path Middle School. Our membership fee is $35 per family, and includes one APT sponsored Student Directory that supplies class lists, names, addresses, phone numbers and emails of District 67 students and parents who choose to have their information published. Additional directories can be purchased for $5 each.
You are always welcome, but not required, to become more involved at any time. Your directory, weekly school newsletter, school website and District website all provide information about meetings and volunteer opportunities. All APT meetings are open and are a great place to learn about the volunteer opportunities in your child's school and across the district. In the end our success depends on the enthusiastic support and involvement of District 67 parents.
Please feel free to contact me, or your school's APT President should you have any questions. Enjoy the rest of summer!
