Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support of Giddens Elementary and the investments you make in your children’s lives. We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Apex Fun Run as our major Spring semester fundraiser! The Apex program will last for 2 weeks and will kick off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, April 24th at 1:30pm. Please look for your child's Apex Pledge Kit they will receive on that day and for e-mails coming from your

Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise funds, while promoting leadership, good character and fitness. This year’s theme is UNITED! Students will join the Apex Squad on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to unite as a team.

During the Apex Fun Run program, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, May 3rd to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average of 26-36 laps around the Apex Raceway. The maximum
amount of laps is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. Through Apex Fun Run’s online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students and can pledge from anywhere in the world!

This year, we're raising funds to pay for Outdoor Improvements, Teacher Grants, and PTA Student and Family Programs.

Thank you again for your continued support – we’re so excited to begin this journey with you!

Mrs. Sally Hill, Principal & Giddens PTA
