Trying to engage in what you’re doing is key. Yesterday our APEX team was focused on LEARNING. Keeping one’s mind and ears open to learn at traditional or unexpected times.
Today’s focus is ENGAGE. The key being we focus on the task at hand and work hard free from distractions. Being “present” is not enough. Being present and engaged is the key.
If you haven’t yet logged into your child’s APEX Fun Run account at home, please take a moment tonight to do so? This is our new fun run. Ehrardt Elementary used APEX for their fun run just two weeks ago and raised $20,000 for their school.
Please talk with your kids about the fun we’ve been having with the APEX team so far. Fun run is scheduled for February 24.
Thank you for your support of Foulks Ranch Elementary PTO and the investments you make in your children’s lives. We are so excited to introduce you to this semester’s only major fundraiser, the Apex Fun Run! The Apex Fun Run will last for 2 weeks and kicked off with a Pep Rally today!
Please look for your child’s Pledge Kit that they received today. Please feel free to visit www.apexfunrun.com to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classes. This year’s character theme is Apex Legends, where students will follow Tikes, Seeds, Specs, Jazz, and Wheels through the pages of their legendary adventure to discover JJ Cortez’s hidden treasure. Along the way these five friends 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 February 24th to help their school. Students will run for 30 minutes and average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps 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 school to pay for!
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 this great event! The times for the Apex Fun Run are as follows:
- 8:30am – AM Kinder, 3rd and 4th grades
- 9:30am – 5th and 6th grades
- 11:30am – PM Kinder, 1st and 2nd grades
You can help our school be successful in the following four ways:
- Help connect your child to potential sponsors (family/friends) to acquire pledges.
- 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 Kim Beltran at 916-838-2527.
Thank you again for your continued support—we are so excited to begin this journey with you!
Mr. Donovan and the Foulks Ranch PTO
