Our Apex Fun Run event fundraiser and leadership program has started!
Apex is bringing an amazing leadership and character-building program to El Rincon, helping students develop lifelong leadership habits and skills that are essential for school and life success. This event is also El Rincon PTA's primary fundraiser, and it is because of Apex's success that we are able to fund so much through the school year. We are raising funds for field trips, STEAM activities, schoolwide & family events, cultural programming, school garden, iReady software, classroom supplies, and more!
This year's leadership theme is POWER! Students will embark on an incredible journey with the Apex Team to charge our POWERS and master five habits that will unleash the power of leadership! Woah!!
These interactive leadership lessons tie in with our school's mission, encourage students to demonstrate leadership through their words & actions, and motivate them to lead by example.
