The Spokane River Run is the primary fundraiser supporting the Alternative Parent Participation Learning Experience (A.P.P.L.E.) program at Garfield Elementary School.

As a parent participation program, parents/guardians spend time in the classroom and are encouraged to help in the planning and implementation of the curriculum. Families in the program also work together at fostering a true feeling of community and involvement in the elementary classroom.

The APPLE program is available to any interested family in Spokane School District 81. Through the APPLE program, parents are involved in the educational process and have a positive impact on the students’ development.

The money raised from the Spokane River Run will be used to supply necessary and additional classroom items, field trips, books, art and science supplies, which are critical to a complete education.
