S.T.E.A.M. Night 

We cannot thank Mrs. Weber and Mrs. Huffman enough for organizing and taking the lead on our S.T.E.A.M. Night! We also want to thank all of our dedicated staff, the students from Apex Friendship High School, the students from Apex High School, the students from Duke University, and all the other volunteers who made our event such a success. We hope that all of our students and families enjoyed this exciting evening!


Sailor Food Drive

Please join us in supporting families in need this holiday season by contributing to our school food drive between November 20th and December 1st. Each classroom is challenged to work together and bring in 25 food items to support our local community!  All donations should be brought to the classroom. Click here for information and suggested donation items. We would like to thank our student council for leading this effort!


One volunteer parent is needed from each class to bring the food from each classroom to Western Wake Crisis Ministry, about a mile from the school. You can volunteer at your convenience anytime the week of 12/4-12/8. Sign up here to volunteer!  Thank you!  


Fifth-Grade Families

We have a handful of families who have not yet placed their class shirt orders. They can be ordered at If you would like to pay by cash or check instead, or have any other questions/concerns, please reach out to Christine at


Thanksgiving Pie Drive

The PTA is very excited to put on our first ever Thanksgiving pie drive! Our teachers and staff have been working so hard this school year, and we are so thankful for them. We would love to take one thing off of their to-do list this Thanksgiving and send each of them home with a pie! In order to make this a success, we need your help! Please see the SignUpGenius below for more information. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kelly at Thank you so much for your support!
