We will start pre-paring for the APEX fun run on Monday by having the kick off assembly with a packet of info coming home with each child. Having four of my own children, fund raisers were not my favorite. I do like however, the idea of getting friends and family to sponsor our children in the physical fitness endeavors as well as sponsoring any amount, even as little as a quarter a lap. Each family also has the choice of making a flat donation (for the entire family) rather than sponsoring each child individually. I also like the idea of not selling gift wrap door to door to all my neighbors:D
I understand that the monies earned will stay with the school and be awarded to the individual teams or teachers. We as a team, have decided to start working, through grants and our fun run money, to build an I-pad library to use between our four classes. This technology will go far in helping all students to be stronger in all academic areas. Thanks so much for your support!
