Welcome back!  We are jumping right in this week, with our first important meetings happening this Thursday, August 15th.  We will have our first PTA meeting of the year at 8:30 am in the AUDITORIUM – all are welcome to attend!  You do not need to be a member of the PTA to attend our meetings, but we would love for you to join!  Come learn all about membership, and the many activities and ideas we have planned for this year.  Please enter through the Apperson gate.  Coffee and refreshments will be served and children are welcome to attend.

Important! Street Closure Map for 6/4/13

There will be no official valet tomorrow, however you may drop off your children eastbound on Apperson Street at the Auditorium gate.  Alternatively, you may park and walk your child to either the Day St. gate or the Apperson gate.  The Woodward gate will be closed.  Please note that Day St. will be closed at Woodward.  Expect delays and plan ahead tomorrow, leaving yourself extra time to arrive at school.  Please drive safely and do not double park.  If you are walking your child to the gate, please cross at a stop sign or designated cross walk.  Thank you!

Bring your family and friends to Straw Hat Pizza in La Crescenta (on Foothill Blvd., between New York and Dunsmore) for our last restaurant fundraiser of the school year! It just opened this month and it is a perfect place to meet for a bite to eat and to spend time with family, friends, classmates and our Apperson community!

There are video games for the kids to play and from what we hear the food is delish! We hope that you all can attend. Straw Hat owners will donate 33.3% of all purchases to Apperson between 5 – 9 pm on Wednesday, May 29th! Thank you Straw Hat Pizza!
