Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Shark Families,

We are kicking off the week with our Apex Fun Run Virtual Pep Rally! The best part about having our Fun Run this year is that not only does it benefit our campus with a much-needed fundraiser, it also gives our students a great day of fun! Fundraising forms will be coming home on Monday and Tuesday, so be on the lookout for those. Our official Fun Run Day will be the last full day of school, Friday, May 21st.

Also, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week! I know our teachers would love an email or note telling them how much they are appreciated.

Have a great week!

Courtney Rodriguez,
