Apex Fun Run


    Dear Parents,

    Apex Fun Run is here!  We welcome Apex leaders Jazzy Jeff, A-game Amber, Tumbling Tasha, and Jammin’ Joe to our school for two weeks of fun and inspiration.  All students are learning to be Apex Legends through amazing daily leadership lessons while raising funds for our school.  Ask your kiddo about the lessons--so far on the importance of always learning and being engaged.

    Thank you for helping your child or children secure pledges to fund some serious needs at our school--now even field trips for the remainder of the year!

    Help volunteer for the fun run on Thursday March 9th!  We need several parents to help cheer on students and mark laps. Please sign up for a time here:


    • Fun Run 1: 10:00 - Kindergarten
    • Fun Run 2: 11:00 - Grade 5
    • Fun Run 3: 12:00 - Grade 1
    • Fun Run 4: 1:00 - Grade 4
    • Fun Run 5: 2:00 – Grade 3
    • Fun Run 6: 3:00 – Grade 2
    • PreK will visit at 9:45 and 2:45. They will join in the spirit of the Fun Run by going on the track and walking/jumping/running for fun.

    Thank you for your commitment to our school and students!
