EVERETT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
ASSOCIATION of PARENTS and TEACHERS (APT)
Letter from the Everett School APT President
On behalf of District 67's Association of Parents and Teachers (APT), I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Everett families - new and old.
It is hard to believe that school is just three days away! The Everett APT Board - which consists of over 20 committees including Teacher Appreciation, Special Events, New Family, and Kindergarten Onboardiing - has been working diligently over the summer to get ready for the 2014-15 school year.
Our excitement about the new school year is further fueled by having a new Principal, Dr. Angela Sopko. We are thrilled to welcome her to the school and community and look forward to carrying on the spirit of teamwork that exists between Everett teachers, staff, and parents through the APT and its sister organization, the Spirit of 67 Foundation, which exclusively handles all school fundraising for District 67.
We invite you to attend our monthly APT meetings, which are generally held on the third Wednesday of every month in the Everett Multipurpose Room. Attending APT meetings is a great way to hear firsthand about important topics and events of interest within the school and the District, as well as to meet other Everett parents and ask questions. For more information about the Everett APT, please visit the APT website at www.everettapt.weebly.com as well as the school’s Facebook page [Everett Eagles].
Our first meeting of the school year will take place on Wednesday, September 24 from 9:00-10:30am in the Multipurpose Room. Please note that we always welcome parent volunteers in whatever capacity they can help, formally and informally. We currently still have a few formal APT Board-level positions open so please feel free to email me directly if you are interested in Fine Arts, Food Service, or Community Service.
As an Everett mom of three, including an incoming Kindergartener, I am available to answer any questions you may have, along with my fellow cabinet members Ami Vora (VP), Christine Goshgarian (Communications), and Maureen Fitzgerald (Secretary).
I look forward to meeting you and working with many of you as fellow APT volunteers in the coming year!
Everett APT President, 2013-2015
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.
