Apperson PTA

2023/24 Direct Donation Drive

Hello Apperson Community! The Apperson PTA is having a direct donation drive which means you or your business can make a tax deductible donation to help improve our school.

Your employer may even have a donation matching program! We worked hard last year partnering with ST Forward to plant native plants around campus using donations from DIY Center and Harbor Freight. With the money we raised last year during our Direct Donation Drive, we were able to buy all students new headsets, purchased 2 buddy benches and 6 benches for the main yard AND even 1 kinder bench to start improving their space.

We would like to continue making Apperson beautiful by improving areas in need. If you or a company/business you know of are interested in making a donation for a tax right off, please fill out our form  so we can send you a receipt.


Valet Program – Volenteers needed

Great News!

Apperson launched the Safety Valet Program on Tuesday Feb. 21 beginning at 7:30 a.m. and every morning thereafter.  The valet program will run on Day Street from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m.

Volunteers form the core of the Safety Valet Program and make sure that it runs smoothly and safely during morning drop off.  The Valet Program channels drivers through a queue of traffic cones to drop off students while the safety valets assist students to safely exit the car. Parents dropping off their kids do not need to exit their vehicle in the drop off area thus improving traffic flow and student safety.

All parents using the valet program can help make it a safe experience for all by adhering to the following protocols:

  • Leaving enough time to calmly and safely drop off all students
  • Paying attention to their surroundings at all times, including traffic signs, pedestrians and other vehicles
  • Entering the valet drop off zone slowly
  • Making a complete stop so that students can exit cars safely
  • Making sure that students have all belongings gathered and ready to exit the car
  • Staying in the car.  Only students exit the car. 
  • Instructing all students to exit through the passenger’s side of the car only
  • Avoiding making any U-turns in any designated school zone

Valet Volunteers will

  • Open car doors
  • Greet children
  • Direct drivers to pull forward after each child has safely exited the vehicle
  • Encourage continuous flow of traffic in and around the Safety Valet drop off area

We need all parents to remember that the safety valets are volunteers and are there for the safety of all students.  We implore all parents to treat the valets with respect and dignity.

One last thing: we still need more volunteers.

Parents may submit their name to become a volunteer by filling out a Parent Valet Sign-Up form at the following link

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.
