PTA News

Apex Fun Run news

Thank you so much for making this year’s Apex Fun Run such a huge success! The students had a wonderful time with the Apex team and the Fun Run was a blast. Now it’s time to collect all pledges that are due on Wednesday, December 9th, 2015.


Each student was given a Collections Envelope and Letter to take home after the Fun Run to collect checks from sponsors. Sponsors were also sent an email with a link to pay online. Our goal is to collect 100% of the funds pledged! Please help by contacting all sponsors to collect their checks or confirm that they have paid online. As a reminder, each class that collects all of their pledges will be receiving a special class prize!

You can also pay online by logging in with your student’s access code to the My Pledges tab at www.apexfunrun.com. If you need your student’s access code or didn’t receive an Apex email, please email info@apexfunrun.com and they will respond quickly.


Thanks so much for helping us reach our goal of 100% collected!
