Apex Fun Run Fundraiser Details :)

For parents who have valid questions/concerns with the percentage of profit Salt Creek is making:
After the actual run next Wednesday, all of the student’s accounts will be updated with the number of laps they will have run.
That will trigger a reminder email in the system to all the people who have pledged money. The email will have a paypal link that is linked to our PTG bank account. We collect 100% of the funds initially. In the end, we keep 52% and Apex will receive a check from us for 48%. Of the 52% that we keep, we are pledging to our teachers, whatever their individual class raises- 10% will go back to the teacher to spend on classroom supplies, an additional field trip, a class party….whatever the individual teacher chooses. The only guideline we have is that it has to be spent on the students, in their classroom and within this school year.
Our proposed 2013-2014 PTG Budget has Apex Fun Run as a fundraising line item. We anticipated a profit of $10,000 with $1,000 of that going directly back to the teachers. If we reach beyond that $10,000 profit, we would like to bring a proper running track to our school, and help get the kids off the blacktop. The architectural drawing is in the works and as of right now we’ve been told to budget $25,000 for this expense. This Fun Run will help us to get closer to achieving that track goal.

  1. Thank you for the transparency. I trust the PTG’s /SC Administrator’s judgement on this. I’m glad to hear that the proceeds will be put to great use.

    But above all, it’s is clear to me that the Fun Run is not only about raising money, it’s also about promoting health, fitness, leadership, and community service–priceless!

    Thank you PTG leaders for all of your hard work.

    • Hi….expanding our parking lot would be wonderful, however, a project like that would involve working with the city and assessing the space. I can definitely inquire about options, and we will continue to try to find ways to ease the parking situation. Thanks for your input, Mrs. Perez
