Dear Cougar Family,

Please take note of the following announcements for this week.



  • All schools lost several days of instruction this fall due to inclement weather and we lost two additional days in January due to heating system failures. The school district also announced this week that all schools will be closed May 1 due to a large number of teachers attending a rally at the General Assembly to address working conditions. This combination of events requires Apex Middle School to recover instructional time between now and the end of the school year. 


  • AMS will begin the school day at 8:05 am beginning Tuesday, April 23. We are starting school 10 minutes earlier for the rest of the school year. If your child rides the bus in the morning, they need to arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes before the current pick-up time. While arriving early is what we always recommend, it will be especially important when we adjust the bell schedule following Spring Break.


  • May Madness is only 3 WEEKS away!!
    • Be sure to register for your spot in dodgeball, pre-order your dinner and purchase raffle tickets!



  • Bruster's Ice Cream Spirit Night!
    • Join us this coming Thursday, 4/25 from 4:00-9:00 pm at Bruster's Ice Cream in Apex. A portion of all purchases will be donated back to Apex Middle School.


  • Teacher Appreciation
    • Teacher Appreciation Week will be observed May 6th-10th. We have lots of fun things planned for our staff but need your help to make this possible. Please sign up for an item (or two) on our sign up genius or purchase off our Amazon wish list. Thank you for helping us plan a special week for our hard-working staff at AMS!!
