Principal's Message

It's that time of year - it's APEX time! For those who are not aware, we have partnered with Apex for our big annual fundraiser and it has been a great program! Not only do we work to raise funds for our school, but there is a fantastic leadership program that Apex provides and our students absolutely love it!

Last year we earned money for upgrades to our recess equipment and YOU made that happen! THANK YOU! We have ordered and are awaiting the installation of a new dual zip line and new basketball goals! In addition, we are hoping to resurface our basketball court on the main playground but still need a little more to make that happen. So this year, we are hoping to raise funds for not only collecting the remaining money for resurfacing our basketball court, but also for classroom upgrades, such as STEM items, manipulatives for centers, and digital subscriptions. Look for more info to come as we get closer. We kick off our Apex fun on Sept. 20 with an all-school pep rally! For more information about our Apex fundraiser, click here!
