APEX FUN RUN IS HERE!
We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Apex Fun Run this year as our major fundraiser! The Apex program will be with our students from August 22 to September 2 teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school. Please look in your child’s folder and e-mails that will be sent to you from your teachers as the fun run gets nearer.
Please feel free to visit www.apexfunrun.com to learn about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness. This year’s character theme is Apex Legends, where students will follow Tikes, Seeds, Specs, Jazz, and Wheels through the pages of their legendary adventure to discover JJ Cortez’s hidden treasure. Along the way these five friends discover what it truly means to be a Legendary leader:
- Never Quit
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on September 2 to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile). Sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards. We will need your help in the following four ways:
- Help connect your child to potential sponsors and help them acquire pledges from family, friends and contacts.
- Ask your child about the “Apex Legend” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” App!
- Come to the Apex Fun Run and don’t forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event.
- Help volunteer for the race! We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps. If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, please contact Rebecca Nelson at email@example.com.
Thank you again for continued support of Clear View and we are excited to begin this journey with you!

¡APEX FUN RUN!
Estamos muy contentos de anunciar que nuestra escuela estará participando en la carrera divertida de APEX este año como nuestra forma principal de recaudación de fondos. El programa Apex estará con nuestros estudiantes el 22 de agosto al 2 de septiembre para enseñar liderazgo y el gimnasio, y al mismo tiempo, estaremos recaudando fondos para ayudar nuestra escuela. Por favor, busque folletos en la carpeta de su niño(a) y en correros electrónicos que se le enviará durante las próximas semanas.
Por favor, siéntase libre de visitar el sitio www.apexfunrun.com para aprender sobre este programa interactivo que ayuda a las escuelas de todo el país recaudar dinero, y que promueve el liderazgo y el gimnasio. El tema de carácter de este año es Leyendas de Apex, donde los estudiantes seguirán los personajes Tikes, Seeds, Specs, Jazz y Wheels a través de las páginas de su aventura legendaria para descubrir JJ Cortez, el tesoro escondido. Por medio de estas aventuras, estos cinco amigos descubren lo que realmente significa ser un líder legendario:
- ¡No darse por vencido!
Durante la carrera, “Apex Fun Run”, estudiantes tienen el reto de obtener promesas de sus patrocinadores para las vueltas corridas. Los estudiantes correrán el 2 de septiembre para ayudar la escuela. Los estudiantes correrán por un promedio de 30 minutos, que son aproximadamente 26 a 36 vueltas, 36 siendo la máxima cantidad de vueltas (cada vuelta es 1/16 de una milla). Los patrocinadores pueden prometer $1, $2, $5, o cualquier otra cantidad por cada vuelta que el estudiante complete. Todos los participantes recibirán un código de acceso que les permite hacer sus promesas por medio de la computadora. Usted puede ayudar a que esto sea un éxito en las siguientes maneras:
- Ayudar a que su hijo/a se ponga en contacto con patrocinadores posibles (familia/amigos) para adquirir promesas.
- ¡Pregúntele a su hijo/a acerca de las lecciones, y obtenga la aplicación “Apex Fun Run”!
- Vengan al “Apex Fun Run” y no olviden invitar a otros a que asistan nuestro evento comunitario en el campo de nuestra escuela.
- ¡Ayudar durante la carrera! Necesitamos la ayuda de los padres para ayudar a animar los estudiantes y para marcar las vueltas. Si usted desea ser voluntario en la carrera, por favor comuníquese con Rebecca Nelson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
¡Gracias de nuevo por su apoyo continuo — estamos muy contentos de iniciar esta carrera con ustedes!

We want to inform you that we will be conducting our online Hanover parent survey starting on Thursday, April 7, 2016 through April 28, 2016. With this survey, we hope to learn more about your experiences and your child(ren’s) experiences at school during this school year with teachers, administrators, students, and other District staff. All responses are anonymous and will never be connected to you – your answers will be kept strictly confidential. Reporting will rely on grouped percentages only.
If both parents/guardians in a household would like to take the survey, that is fine. However, we ask that each adult only take the survey once, and do so by April 28, 2016. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey, please contact the District’s Operations Department at (619) 425-9600, ext. 1325.
