Cougar Connection - Special Edition
Apex Middle School PTA
Cougar Campaign - DONATE TODAY!!
Our Cougar Campaign is back!! This direct donation campaign allows 100% of all donations to stay right here at Apex Middle. This year more than ever we need of your support. Because of the Covid pandemic, most of our fundraising for the year has been cancelled. We had to make some very hard choices when it came to this year's budget. We needed to cut thousands of dollars due to the lack of fundraising. We are hoping to be able to host our silent auction in the spring, however with all of the uncertainty this may be our only fundraiser of the year.
Below you can read more about how your donations will be spent but we want to point out our two main priorities that our PTA is focusing on. The first being our teachers. They are being asked to do so much right now and our support is essential! The second is our students. We want to be sure we are able to assist our guidance team to reach all students and we want to help make sure our building is ready to welcome them back. We are looking into things such as water bottle friendly drinking fountains!
We are so thankful for all of your support!
What you are supporting
- Each staff member can request a $200 reimbursement for classroom supplies (this alone is about a $14,000 expense!)
- Funds will be available for Covid19 essentials such as masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and more
- Funds will be available to our Guidance Department to support all students
- Funds will be available to contribute to an 8th grade graduation event at the end of the school year
- We are hoping we can in someway still hold hospitality events for the staff at AMS, this includes Teacher Appreciation
- Virtual Cultural Arts Events
- We will be starting a pantry at AMS (food, school supplies, hygiene items and so on)
This is just a small glimpse of what the PTA supports!
