The Apex Fun Run has begun!
Tracey’s PTA is excited to announce that Tracey’s Elementary will be participating in the Apex Fun Run, an interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classroom. This September 6th-15th, Tracey’s Elementary students and teachers will join characters Tikes, Seeds, Specs, Jazz, and Wheels through the pages of their legendary adventure in search of the hidden treasure of J.J. Cortez. Along the way, Tracey’s students will discover what it truly means to be a Legendary Leader:
- Never quit
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on September 15th to help their school. Students will run for 30 minutes and average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile). Sponsors can pledge $1, $2, $5, or any other amount for each lap students run. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. Funds raised this year will be going to the PTA to pay for enrichment programs such as field trips, Science Fair, and assemblies.
The Apex Fun Run is for every student regardless of financial giving. All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards. We invite all parents to come to the Apex Fun Run and share in the great event! The times for the run are as follows:
Grades 4 and 5: 9:45am – 10:30am
Grades 2 and 3: 10:45am – 11:30am
Grades K and 1: 1:30pm – 2:15pm
You can help Tracey’s PTA be successful in the following four ways:
- Help connect your child to potential sponsors (family/friends) to acquire pledges. Visit apexfunrun.com and enter your child’s access code found in their pledge kit.
- Ask your child about the “Legend” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” app!
- Come to the Apex Fun Run, and don’t forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event on our field.
- Help volunteer for the race! We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps. If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, please contact Ellen Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thank you again for your support! We are so excited to begin this journey with you!
