D67 PARENT ORGANIZATIONS
Association of Parents and Teachers (APT)
The core mission of the District 67 Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) is to promote good communication and cooperative working relationships among the community, school and home. The group works to enhance the educational experience of all District 67 students through school-based programs, organized and implemented by dedicated parent volunteers. These programs are predominantly funded by APT dues.
Please note that APT membership is different from donating to the Spirit of 67 Foundation. The Spirit of 67 Foundation is the fundraising arm for District 67 and works alongside the APT to help fund enrichment opportunities for the children, teachers, and parents.
The Spirit of 67 Foundation - Enhancing the Education of Every Student in Every School, Every Day
The Spirit of 67 Foundation is a not-for-profit, parent-run volunteer organization whose mission is to raise funds and acquire resources to enrich and elevate the educational and cultural experiences of students, faculty, parents and staff of District 67 in ways that might not otherwise be provided.
Established over 35 years ago, the Spirit has, to date, awarded over 635 grants totaling over $5 million providing curricular enhancements, resources & tools that support excellence in our public schools. With your donation, we fund many grants across all four D67 schools so that a student’s educational experience is enriched beyond what tax dollars pay for. In the course of a school day, students benefit from grants in fine arts, wellness, language arts, math, STEAM, emotional wellness, science, social studies, world language and more.
