APEX Fun Run (Scheduled For March 21st)

Happy Spring Break! As you know, our Fun Run was scheduled for today but with our Virtual Learning today, we have to reschedule. No worries, our Fun Run will be on Monday, March 21st. Weather permitting, we will have our Run outside, if the weather is less than desirable we will have our Fun Run inside in the school gym. If our races are outside, you are all welcome to come cheer on your kiddos and enjoy the day with us! If the Fun Run is indoors, however, only our parent volunteers who signed up will be able to join us. Pledging will be open until March 21st at midnight. You may continue to fundraise all break long and keep an eye on the FaceBook page for updates and maybe some goofy videos from the Apex Team!

Thank you for all of your support and we hope you all enjoy your break!

We will see you very soon,

Finn For The Win
