Interested in getting more involved? Looking for ways to improve the school and the enrichment opportunities your child receives? Come join us to hear more about what our PTO does and how you can help! You will be amazed at how a small group of committed individuals can make such a huge difference in the lives of our kids. There will also be additional time for general Q&A with the principal. Hope to see you all there!



Date Change to the Jog-a-Thon. The annual Jog-a-thon scheduled for Thursday, March 3rd has been changed to Friday, April 22nd. The volunteers who organize the Jog-a-thon have decided to go a different direction this year. Instead of tapping into all of the volunteer hours it takes to organize and run this Fundraising Event we have decided to hire a company that will do it for us. So this year’s APEX Fun Run will replace the traditional Jog-a-Thon. It is also an in classroom Leadership program that runs for two weeks April 11-22 leading up to the FUN RUN Race Day April 22. So please Save the Date to help cheer on your runners during the race on April 22.  More info to follow as the date gets closer.
