Dr. Saunders' Message 012620

Baucom Parents & Guardians,

This is Principal Saunders with this week’s Sunday Kickoff Message.

First, there is NO SCHOOL this Wednesday, January 29th, due to a Teacher Workday to close out Semester #1.

PTA Science Expo & STEAM Night is just around the corner on February 11th.  Students will present their science projects to visitors in the gym, while the cafetorium will be alive with science fun with the Mad Science group and STEAM activities through local corporate and university partners. We will even have a demonstration of all their hard work by our very own LEGO Robotics team in the cottage behind the school where they practiced during 1st semester. Mark your calendars for this fun night on February 11th. 

Our 2nd Quarter Awards Ceremonies are scheduled for Wednesday, February 12th:  Kinder and 1st grade will be at 12:30pm, 2nd and 3rd grade at 1:30pm, and 4th and 5th grade at 2:30pm. Reminder that, due to limited space, this event each quarter is limited to parents or guardians only.

Please see additional reminders in the emailed version of this message and may each of you have #blueskiesahead this week!



  • We have the next Family Academy Information Night for parents of our English Learners, and any of our Spanish-speaking families, scheduled for Thursday, January 30th at 6pm. Lisa Barnes, our teacher who works with our English Language Learners, will be sending home information to those specific families very soon.
  • Our school Science Fair winners will compete at the North Carolina regional level of competition on Saturday, February 1st. We’re very proud of them and all of our 5th graders this year for their hard work with their Science Fair projects.
  • TGA of Wake County has registration open now for the next round of weekly golf and tennis instruction at Baucom. The next set of sessions begin February 10th.  Registration is online at: if interested.
  • Know a new family to Apex or a family with a Kindergartener next year? Our available school tours are indicated on the school calendar on our Baucom website. We’d love to show them what we already know is special about 400 Hunter Street, so let ‘em know about the tour dates!
  • Looking ahead, there is NO SCHOOL February 17th for President’s Day, nor February 18th for a Teacher Workday.
