Apex Door Decorating Contest

As the “Head Coaches”, everyone looks up to their leaders to show them the way! Let’s build Apex school spirit by decorating classroom and office doors incorporating this year’s theme “Apex Dream Team”.

If you will be participating in this Apex door decorating contest, please let me know before the judging day. Judges will be viewing all entries and awarding winners at 3:00 pm on Friday, January 8th, 2016.

First, second and third place grade level winners will be announced at the fun run. Check out our Pinterest page for ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/apexfunrunPHX/

Get the kids excited! Teachers can get sponsors and participate in the fun run too. Kids love to have their coach running with them.

Dismissal Changes

Thank you so much for giving your input about after school dismissal. After counting up the votes it is very clear that we want to move second grade to the front of the school for dismissal. However, after our vote some new information has come to light that will impact the move. Currently both the fourth grade and fifth grade exit the building through the library door. The fire marshal has determined that this side door will be a fire exit only. This means that all of fourth and fifth grade car riders will need to start exiting through the front doors along with the third grade. Before making a change to add second grade, it has been decided to make the fire door change first. Once we have the front car dismissal running smoothly again, we can reconsider adding second grade. Please stay posted and be patient as we wait for these changes and make adjustments as necessary.


Microwaves are cleaned out each evening by custodial staff. However, staff members need to clean up after themselves throughout the day. If you have a microwave incident, please address it immediately.


Safety for all is a priority. It has been reported that staff members are speeding on our bordering streets and through parking lots. Be sure to review posted speed limit signs. Campus speeds should not exceed 10 mph. Streets speed limits vary depending on time of day, 20-30 mph.
