Upcoming Events

apexfun run


We are midway through our major fundraiser of the year! The students love the insightful leadership lessons the APEX crew is presenting in the classrooms and enjoy having the Apex Crew on campus. We are working toward our school wide goal order to pay for our music program, field trips, family fun nights, technology and much, much more.

The Apex Fun Run is on Thursday, May 19th. We love to have parents come out and cheer on the students as they run the Apex Track!  Please check the sign up genius and arrive 10 minutes prior to your child’s race time if you are a volunteer.

The times for the runs are as follows:

Grades 2-3 at 7:55 am  (Brunet’s class too)

Grades TK, K, 1 at 9:45 am

Grades 4-5 12:30 pm

WE NEED EVERYONE’S HELP in order to reach our goal.  Use your child’s access code that was sent home with APEX info on Tuesday.  

Log onto www.apexfunrun.com and enter the access code to make pledges per lap or simple donation.

Pledge Per Lap means that a dollar amount is pledged for every lap that a student completes at the Apex Fun Run (between 26-36 laps, no more than 36).  If a student is absent or unable to run at the fun run they will be counted at 30 laps.

Simple Donation means that a flat amount of money is pledged regardless of how many laps run. For example, you can pledge $30 simple donation and no matter what amount of the laps the student runs the total payment will remain $30.

Pledge payments are due by Thursday, May 19th at 11:59 p.m..  Please make checks payable to Las Flores PTA. Students will receive a collection letter and envelope in their class next Friday 5/20 that will be due by May 27th.

Collect your Box Tops! & help LFES earn “free $$”

It’s BOX TOPS CONTEST time again! Classes will compete to see which class can collect the most box tops for the school. The contest will run from January Box Tops26-February 26th. The class that collects the most box tops this year will win great prizes, including a classroom set of playground balls, some fun bubble activities for the class, and bubbles for each student! Every year, our parents help raise over $1000 for the LFES PTA just by clipping and saving “Box Tops for Education” Each box top earns 10 cents to fund great PTA programs. Students can collect box tops in baggies, or attach them to this Collection Sheet.  Sheets can be turned in whether they are complete or not. Please tape or glue box tops on and make sure they are not expired or torn (no staples, please!). Be sure to include your teacher’s name on your collection sheet!
