Weekly Update, 6/7/2020

Dear Apex Cougar Families,


I hope this message finds you healthy and well! It has been quite a year! Thank you all again for your continued grace and support! Your constructive feedback and words of encouragement & appreciation have been invaluable during this unprecedented time in our history.


A Message of Racial Solidarity

Our country finds itself in the midst of multiple crises as we are witnessing racial violence at an unprecedented rate. I know I speak for all of us as staff at Apex ES, that we stand firm in our commitment to uplifting our students, communities and staff of color. Racism and bigotry have absolutely no room in our community! 


As members of the Wake County Public School System, one of our core beliefs states: “The Board of Education, superintendent, and all staff value a diverse school community that is inviting, respectful, inclusive, flexible and supportive.” We remain dedicated to this belief. If racism is something we have built as a society, I have great hope and faith that it is something that we can tear down together.
