The Apex Fun Run is just around the corner!

November 29th is the Apex Fun Run for our elementary age students! We are excited to offer this educational fundraising opportunity for the second year in a row. Our kids enjoyed the lessons taught in their classrooms in the days leading up to the Fun Run, and the opportunity to run the course in the TAC. This is Elementary PIE's biggest fundraiser of the year, and helps support your child's classroom in many ways. We appreciate your participation and look forward to enjoying the Fun Run with your children on November 29th!
Delano Elementary School-Partners In Education (DES-PIE) needs your time and talent to continue to make our school the success that it is today. Parents, teachers and our community help raise over $45,000 every year for our students by holding our own carnivals, family fun nights, having our one and only Fall Fundraiser, collecting Box Tops, Target Guest Cards, DQ Nights; just to name a few.
With our funds, we have proudly purchased state of the art technology for every classroom, field trips, books/magazines, school-wide residency programs and much more! In the past couple of years, we were able to help build a Leveled Library in our elementary school. A Leveled Library system enables teachers to have access to books at each child’s reading level for a particular lesson, which allows teachers to best meet the individual needs of each student.
