Welcome Back Cherokee Families!!
Well this certainly isn’t that start to the 2020-21 school year that any on us had imagined! I can only hope this is temporary, and we all get back to seeing each other in person again soon. But in the meantime, we as an APT want to do as much as we can to keep our amazing Cherokee community connected, because that’s such a huge part of what makes our school so incredible. It was that line of thinking that eventually lead us to choose our theme for the year (Survivor and Welcome to the Circus were definitely on the table, ha!), and we settled on “Unity for Our Community……keeping us close, but not too close” 😉
All kidding aside, the goal of the APT is to keep us all as engaged and connected as possible during these crazy times. We want to be able to give children and parents alike a sense of normalcy and fun, when so much of what is happening in everyone’s lives is so uncertain right now. It’s important to us that whether you choose SOL or EDL, you still feel a part of the Cherokee family, and have opportunities to engage. We’ve got plans for some fun virtual events (think bingo and trivia night) as well as some potential socially distanced events (like a drive-in movie night!)
While we usually have the schedule laid out for the entire year, we ask that you bare with us this year as planning will be evolving as rules and regulations regarding what we are able to do are constantly changing. That being said, it’s especially important this year that you join our Cherokee APT Facebook page, and/or sign up to receive our email newsletters. These avenues will be our primary source for getting you the most up to date info on what we’re planning. Keep your eyes peeled for an email coming soon with info on our annual Membership Drive, which is where you’ll have the opportunity to subscribe to receive our emails.
And I’d love to hear from all of you!! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or ideas. We love hearing from all of you, and we want your feedback! We want to do everything we can to help these kiddos have the best possible year they can, and we welcome and value your input.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, so drop me a note any time! We really are all in this together! I’m looking forward to all of us working together to make this an incredible year!
