Hello! As we venture into the final days of our school year I wanted to make sure that all our incoming 5th-8th graders for the 2021/2022 school year knew of the opportunity this coming fall to join our Cross Country program.

I have posted the times we will meet for optional practices this summer and also will be meeting for anyone that is wanting to prep a bit for the rhubarb run on May 31st-June 3rd. Those meeting times will be at 7:00am at the MCIS.

If you are interested in joining please fill out the following form for contact info and student info: https://forms.gle/B6pvL3gY29nqDnpn8

Once youve filled out that form please feel free to join our Jh cross country page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1850590748502269/

Here at Apollo we go outside for recess until the real feel or windchill is 20 degrees or less. Today that number was 41 degrees and many of our students were not dressed properly and were complaining about being cold. Please make sure you check the forecast and send your students with appropriate clothes for the weather. Also, please make sure their names are written in their hats, mittens, and coats.

Thank you!

Principal’s Mission

My name is Bill Fleuette and I have served as Apollo’s principal since 2004. It is my mission that every student (and staff member) looks forward to coming to Apollo every morning and when they get here they feel safe and valued. If I am successful in this mission, students will be ready to learn, and teachers will be ready to teach.
