EVERETT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
ASSOCIATION of PARENTS and TEACHERS (APT)
Letter from the Everett School APT President
On behalf of the Everett School APT, welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!
Everett is a fabulous community made up of dedicated teachers, staff, and parents whose collective talents, accomplishments, and goals help enhance our childrens' education. From teacher appreciation to staff recognition and parent volunteership, the APT makes a difference every day.
This year's Board consists of over 25 different committees, ranging from Teacher Appreciation to Emotional Wellness. Outside of the regular activities that the APT sponsors, the incoming Board is especially excited about celebrating Everett's 100-year anniversary next April. I know that Dr. Wiemer and the APT Everett Centennial Committee will make this a celebration to remember!
I am proud to be a part of the Everett School APT and truly humbled by the hardwork and dedication of my fellow parents in ensuring an exceptional elementary school experience for all those involved, especially the children.
I look forward to getting to know more of you over the next two years. To that end, please join us for a monthly meeting at 9 a.m. in the multipurpose room on the third Wednesday of each month, or sign up for a volunteer opportunity as your schedule permits.
I, along with my fellow Board Officers Ami Vora, Kristin O'Neil, and Teri Albus, look forward to making this a wonderful and exciting school year for all! Please feel free to contact any of us with questions or comments about the APT.
Lake Forest School District 67 Association of Parents and Teachers
The mission of the Lake Forest School District 67 Association of Parents and Teachers is to foster cooperative and working relationships, promote communication within the school community, and to enhance the education and enrichment of our children. Membership in APT supports the children, parents, and teachers, administrators, and support staff.
The APT embraces our responsibility to promote respect and inclusion for all parties as cornerstones of these relationships. Our purpose is to establish a close working relationship among the home, school and community so that all may cooperate effectively.
We support, through organization and volunteer help, those activities that offer direct educational enrichment for our children, as well as those that add to the positive culture and climate of our schools. A few of the many activities include: Celebration Book Club, Community Service, Fine Arts Presentations, Parent Awareness Programs, and Special Events.
We take responsibility to be informed about District 67 issues. We work to communicate to our membership through various means, and to keep them apprised of all matters occuring in the District.
