This May 3rd, Jackson Creek will be hosting an APEX Fun Run Fundraiser. APEX is collaborating with our school PTO and faculty to build student leaders through a meaningful and engaging FUN RUN.
This high energy exciting school event will kickoff on Tuesday April 24th. Your child will receive information about how they can begin raising pledges for the FUN RUN which will take place the following week on Thursday May 3rd.
During this time students will be engaged in learning about how they can change their school and the world in profound ways. They will see how service to others can contribute the greatest good and see how exercise can play a vital role in personal and community health.
Keep an eye out for more information. Packets will go home next week following the student Pep Rally.
Here’s the letter D. Mosso Taylor sent out regarding the event
Thank you for your support of Jackson Creek Elementary school 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 will kick off with two Pep Rallies (Pre-K – 2nd @ 1:00pm and 3rd -5th @ 2pm) on April 24, 2018 in the performance area.
Please look for your child’s Pledge Kit that they will receive on that day as well as emails from your teachers the following day. Please 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 United where students will follow Sam, Rob, Wendy, Robin and Luke who together make up the United Squad. We catch up with our characters while the deceiving Mr. E is constantly testing them. With special powers provided by Omega, these five friends will truly learn what it means to be united along with a surprise none of them saw coming.
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on May 3, 2018 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. THIS IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED! Funds raised this year will purchase supplies and curriculum materials that will enhance our AVID program!
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:
- Fun Run 1: Pre K 9:00 to 10:00
- Fun Run 2: K and 1st 10:15 to 11:15
- Fun Run 3: 2nd and 3rd grade 11:30 to 12:30
- Fun Run 4: 4th and 5th grade 1:15 to 2:15
For parents: https://vimeo.com/224399946 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 “United” 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.
- 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 PTO/ Krishonda Cody at Krishondacody81@gmail.com.
Thank you again for your continued support—we are so excited to begin this journey with you!
