APEX is COMING BACK to CS in March!!

Parents & Families - Our major fundraiser with #ApexLeadershipCo kicks off on Tuesday, March 2nd! Some of the program components will be done virtually so ALL students can participate whether they’re at home or on campus. We’re so excited!

Apex is a local company that provides a fun 2-week program where students will learn about important leadership habits and good character traits. Then the program wraps up with a celebratory, high energy REMIX event. Families are asked to help our school by gathering pledges from family and friends for every fitness move their student completes at the CANYON SPRINGS APEX REMIX/Run on Wed. March 10th-Fri. March 12th!

The funds we’re raising from this event will go towards an outdoor learning space. We understand that some of our families may not be in a position to donate, and that’s OK! If you can help, please know that no donation is too small. We’ll share more info about the Apex program and ways to support our school over the coming weeks.
