Good morning & Happy Monday!

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of the first month in 2019!  Things are certainly rolling along quickly and strong!  We have much to Learn and to Celebrate!!

APEX is Coming!

Last year, you helped us raise over $50,000 to support technology, outdoor improvements, flexible seating and our innovation station!  This year, your donations will go to technology, more outdoor improvements of our playground/field area, flexible seating and instructional materials and resources such as subscriptions like NewsELA.  One goal is to split the cost of 24 ipads (cost about $24,000) with our fabulous PTA.  This fundraiser is completely separate to that of our PTA and goes into our school budget to fund items not supplied by the district.  I have attached a letter with information on the upcoming fundraiser.  Watch for a separate email with more information about the program and resources purchased last year!  This year’s theme is APEX STRONG:  Selfless, Trustworthy, Refuel, Overcome, Next Level, Grateful!  Attachment: APEX is Coming!
