Apex is a 2-week interactive school program that promotes leadership habits and good character combined with a fitness-focused fundraiser that also helps our school raise funds. With the limitations of COVID-19, Apex has developed a revised program that students can do from the comfort of home. It is a 30-minute video that mixes dance moves with circuit training to keep that fitness component and give something fun for our community to do in this tough time. Apex is still incorporating leadership lessons, which will serve to complement TJE's commitment to social / emotional learning.
The jog-a-thon is the primary funding source of TJE's beloved music program. Last year, we partnered with Apex for the first time. While Apex is funded through a percentage of the contributions raised, by utilizing their program, Judah earned approximately $13,000 more than the previous year! The additional money we raised last year has helped mitigate the fundraising shortfall we faced due to the Covid-related cancelling of our yearly spring auction. The donations we raise this year will continue to support our music program, as well as our art, garden and science programs. While our expectations this year are that we will not be able to hit the same level of fundraising, we are committed to doing our very best to sustain TJE's enrichment programs. For families who would prefer not to participate with the Apex model, no worries, you are invited to contribute to the programs directly!
