Teacher Appreciation

Our Teachers and Staff at Apex Middle have done a phenomenal job navigating the unknowns of this school year and we want to celebrate them! We want to celebrate the staff at AMS in a big way during Teacher Appreciation Week. Each day during the week of May 3rd we will have a special treat for the teacher. We need your help to make this a success! Please take a look at our Amazon wish list, SignUp Genius or donation site and help where you are able. Any financial donations will be used for a special teacher lunch.

2021/2022 School Year

We are in desperate need of volunteers for next school year.

Spiritwear

Spiritwear is still marked down on our website. This is a great time to stock up on AMS merchandise OR make a donation. If you would like to purchase items to be donated to our guidance team, all you need to do is put Guidance in the homeroom or student name line item. These items will be given to our guidance team to be used at their discretion.

Spring Fundraiser

We have a wonderful fundraiser for you to remember your children's days at Apex Middle School! Lewis and Laura Wilson of Lew Wilson Art in Apex have been painting area schools and selling prints and ornaments to the school community. They have created an ornament and print of Apex Middle School (see images below) which would make a great keepsake for a graduating 8th grader especially! They donate 20% of all sales back to the school. This includes ANYTHING on their website. They have ornaments and prints of colleges, high schools, middle schools, and some elementary schools. They also have several town art ornaments and prints. Apex Middle School will get the credit for whatever you choose to order as long as you put AMS in the promo code.


The website is https://www.lewwilsonart.com. Type in Apex Middle School in the search bar and the ornaments and prints will come up, not necessarily all together. They are spaced out between some other schools. They have 2 versions of ornaments, one personalized with "Class of ????" (top ornament in image) and a non-personalized one (bottom ornament in image). Lewis and Laura will ship directly to you. You should receive the order in a week or less.


Pricing is as follows:


$19.95 personalized ornament

$18.00 non-personalized ornament

$24.95 for an 8x10 print

$44.95 for an 11x14 print

All pricing includes shipping.


You may start placing orders now. The deadline for deliveries for graduation is Friday, May 28th, but Lew Wilson Art will continue to accept orders indefinitely. Just remember to put AMS in the promo code so Apex Middle School will continue to get the credit.
