Good Morning, Everyone!
The Big News This Week:
On Monday, August 26th, Apex Fun Run team will be here to help us launch our first ever Apex Fun Run. The event will kick off with a fantastic Pep Rally!
This is our first year working with the Apex Fun Run team, and we are pretty excited. This is a huge fundraising opportunity for our school. And since the PTG is working hard to raise money to build a proper running track at the school, we thought the Apex Fun Run would be an appropriate kick-start to our fundraising!
Some people have expressed sadness about the departure of our traditional Fun Run, and we get that! The traditional Salt Creek Fun Run was a fantastic family event! We want you to know that we have not completely discarded the idea of this Family Fun Run! There is potential to run this event in the spring when temperatures are a bit cooler. But because we are a busy PTG, we would need a parent to volunteer to take charge of this “possible” spring event. If you are interested please contact us at email@example.com.
Here is your PTG update for the upcoming week.
Apex Fun Run Pep Rally
- Monday, August 26th – The black top @ 8:30 a.m. – The pep rally will kick off a two-week fundraising campaign. Some of the money raised will be put towards the new running track the PTG would like to build at the school.
- The kids are encouraged to collected pledges from friends and family. Pledges can be “per lap” or a “lump sum” amount. Keep in mind, the average kid will run between 25 and 35 laps.
