Apex will be in the classrooms starting Tuesday, April 14th, to teach leadership and fitness to our students who will be raising pledges for the Fun Run event, which will be held on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015.
Your child should have brought home a Pledge Kit. Please feel free to visit www.apexfunrun.com to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classes.
This year’s character building theme is Apex Extreme, where students will join the Apex team in a nationwide Extreme Race to learn what it means to become an Extreme Leader:
* Find Your Strengths!
* Be Brave!
* Stick Together!
* Go Big!
* Say Thanks!
Students will be raising pledges for the laps they run (between 26-36, 36-lap max). Each lap is 1/16th of a mile. For instance, $1 per lap means $30 dollars to our school if the student runs 30 laps. Each class will have a goal of reaching $3 per lap for each student.
The Apex Fun Run is for every student regardless of financial giving. All students will receive Apex bands, a race day lap counter t-shirt, and team awards. We invite all parents to come to the Apex Fun Run event and/or sign up to volunteer on the sign up Genius that will be coming soon. The times for the Apex Run are as follows:
