Walk to School Day – Turnout was great for this year’s Walk to School Day event. The skies threatened rain, but the weather held out as about 100 students walked to school, and were greeted by Paws, our CES mascot! One student saw Paws outside of the school and declared, “This is the best day ever!”

Weekend Family Walk – About 30 people were present on Saturday, November 2, 2013, to take a beautiful fall walk at Apex Community Park. We walked the 2-mile trail around the lake and finished with some playtime at the playground. It was a nice, sunny day and the fall leaves were almost at their peak—what a gorgeous morning! Many thanks to everyone who participated—we will plan another weekend walk or playground date after the holidays.
