Apex Fun Run....Is Here!

The Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country to raise money, while promoting leadership, good character, and fitness. This year's theme is UNITED! Students will join the Apex Squad on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to unite as a team. For more information, click here.


Our Fun Run will be Thursday, October 26. If you plan to join us for this fun and exciting fun run, please avoid delays in gaining entrance to the school. Be sure to RSVP.


This year our donation collections will all be done online to make the collection process easier and faster. Of course, sponsors can still pay by cash/check if they choose, we just ask that these donations be turned into the school any time before the Fun Run, so that students receive credit. If paying by cash or check, please turn in the payments by Thursday morning, October 26.


The APEX run is this Thursday! The weather looks amazing! Please come out to cheer your little runner on, it's a fun event full of smiles!! We also need more helpers to mark laps and pass out water.
