APEX Fun Run



Dear Parents,

I know that dismissal can be frustrating because the car lines are long.  I have always said that while our dismissal is as efficient as possible with our current circumstances and horseshoe layout, it is ultimately “controlled chaos”.  I need your help to make dismissal run a little smoother and faster.  We are experiencing several cars not arriving until after 3:00 P.M.  I encourage everyone to try being in the car line between 2:40 P.M. and 3:00 P.M.  When cars arrive after 3:00 P.M., it causes my staff to be out front until 3:15 P.M.  This delays Aftercare, tutoring, and parent conferences.  I know that situations occur from time to time in which parents are running late and cannot be in line before 3:00 P.M.  I am not concerned about those situations.  I am more concerned about those that intentionally arrive after 3:00 P.M. in hopes of avoiding the car line.  If everyone works together, we can achieve our goal of dismissal ending at 3:00 P.M.  I would like to thank everyone in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

Welcome Back Welcome

Kelsey Dodd of Card Your Yard Chickamauga was very gracious and donated the signage that all the students saw on their first day back on January 6th.  This company setup the signs and removed them the next day.  Very exciting and convenient way to deliver a nice message.

Concession Stand Bonanza Extravaganza

We are so appreciative of Kim Patton and her family for providing us with Wendy’s chili and baked potatoes throughout the years for the staff during their lunch time.  Recently, Kim donated 340 Wendy’s kids' meals for our Butter Braid reward called Concession Stand Bonanza.  Thank you, Kim.
