Due to the pandemic, Algonquin’s Class of 2021 weren’t able to hold a junior prom and they won’t be enjoying a senior ball this spring. To help raise senior spirits, the APTO (Algonquin Parent Teacher Organization) is working to make the students feel special.
Volunteers are coordinating to “gift treats” to students each month.
The APTO kicked off the program in February. Each senior received a Class of 2021 mug, a chocolate chip cookie, and a coupon for a free hot chocolate bomb (from Main St. Pastries & More in Northborough). According to the group’s website, even Stand Alone Remote Program seniors were delivered gifts thanks to volunteers.
APTO is now seeking financial support to continue their effort monthly through May.
In keeping with the theme of the class of ’21, treats will be doled out each month during the week of the 21st. And they are asking the community to contribute. The suggested donation – $21.
Of course, no surprise, they are also happy to take larger donations. The organization notes: “A Donation of $50 or more will qualify students for the APTO Senior Scholarship. Please check scholarship details in Naviance.”
