Major Fundraisers

The APT hosts three major fundraising events each school year:


APT Membership Drive 


Cherokee Elementary continues to thrive, as an A+ school, due to incredible teachers, staff, parents and of course our students. The Cherokee APT is thrilled to be able to count on your support to ensure we continue to have the funding necessary to have aides in each Kinder-2nd grade classroom, to provide support for Reading and Math Specialists and to provide for technology upgrades.

Join us in continuing the level of excellence at Cherokee by participating in the Cherokee APT (Association of Parents and Teachers) Membership drive.


Fitness Challenge 


The only student-led fundraiser of the year, the Fitness Challenge, will kick off with a fun pep rally on January 17th, celebrate with a dance party on January 24th, and concludes with a day of fun and fitness on February 7th, 2020.  Our fundraising winners will be announced on February 14th. This event is beloved by the students each year as they work to raise money to support their school but also, have a wonderful time doing it!
You can sign up to volunteer for the Fitness Challenge HERE:
