Parents, lunch visitors are welcome. Please remember to allow time to check in/complete screener & that you will sit at the center table with your student.

Titan Running Club

We are excited that Running Club is BACK & kicks off next week. We will be excited to put the track to use & are excited for the resurfacing coming up soon (Thanks to PTA & all who supported our Apex Fun Run!).

What is Running Club?

Running Club is an opportunity for students to get active! On Running Club dates students in the designated grade level will report to the MPR (not their teacher's classroom) upon arrival/after breakfast. Students will have an opportunity to run laps outside until 7:55 at which time they will transition inside. Students who choose not to run may read silently in the MPR.

Grade levels are assigned the following Running Club dates:

Kinder: (Mondays) 10/18, 11/8, 11/29

1st: (Thursdays) 10/21, 11/11, 12/2

2nd: (Tuesdays) 10/19, 11/9/11/20

3rd: (Mondays) 10/25, 11/15, 12/6

4th: (Thursdays) 10/28, 11/18, 12/9

5th: (Tuesdays) 10/26, 11/16, 12/7

Volunteers will be needed to support Running Club. Volunteers will need to be here by 7:10 to help us organize, and will stay until about 8:05. Reach out to PTA Healthy Lifestyles Chair if you are interested in volunteering: traceynhupham@yahoo.com
