Exec terms complete at the end of this year
Participation, Strategic Planner and Co-Registrar will be ending at the end of the 2022 school year. If any of these positions are of interest to you please reach out and we will be happy to answer questions, walk you through the position responsibilities and even help transition you into the role over for next year. The earlier you express interest, the easier the transition to the role is!
Fundraising is a fundamental part of the APPLE program. All funds raised this year go to next year’s operating budget. The more money we raise the more experiences and educational materials our children have access to. From mint smoothies to gift cards to silent auctions to [insert YOUR idea here] is how it happens. Reach out, share your fundraising ideas and help bring them to life!
This year the core gazette will play a major role in communication, sharing of information and keeping everyone connected. The ideas, goals and objectives they have presented are fully aligned with exec and we are excited by their enthusiasm in making them happen (which are already in the works). They welcome extra hands to make it the best possible result with every issue. Reach out if you have any questions, material they could use and/or help with the process.
Penny Lane / Nature Park
The best way to get hours is through the nature park during the summer. Starting July 1 until the first day of school each year, all hours attending meetings, removing weeds from the garden or helping with watering for the nature park count for the upcoming year as double hours! There are a number of families who have already covered their first 3 months of APPLE hours easily. The nature park will be used by students even more so this year as the school is aiming for lots of time outside. There are many opportunities for hours here to ensure it is a safe and well kept area for our children to learn. Touch base with Tammi to get setup.

This team keeps our classrooms filled and our open houses packed (socially distanced now of course). Getting the word out about APPLE is what they do best. If you have expertise or knowledge in this area or are just plain curious how it’s done, reach out and they will guide you.
This team is a key to building the community aspect in APPLE. Yes, things will be a little different this year and that’s ok – if we’ve learned anything since March 2020 it’s that we are all so resilient! Let’s make it fun for us and our children!
