Save the Date: Apex ES Book Fair & Movie Night

On March 1, please join the AES community for Movie Night! Additionally, our book fair will open that evening. Stay tuned for the choice of movie being selected by our students!


Lunch Visitors 

We welcome families to come have lunch with their students during their assigned lunchtime. Seeing so many families taking advantage of this opportunity has been great! If you choose to visit during these times, as a reminder, please refrain from using your cellular devices to take pictures or videos of students other than your personal child, as this can violate photo/video permission of other students. Thank you!
