We are still in need of Room Parents for a few classes!

Please see the signup below for which teachers still need help!
If you have any questions, please reach out to!

First, I'd like to shout out a huge welcome to our new members who joined after our curriculum nights last week. We love to see our community grow and strengthen. Now that you're a member, you may be wondering, what now???

(Forgot to join? It's not too late - spread the word and join the PTA here!)

The PTA has many opportunities for you to be involved! Make sure you are following us on facebookinstagram, and twitter, and check this weekly newsletter for upcoming volunteer events and open opportunities with the PTA. Our PTA community works hard to make Apex Elementary great, through providing support for student clubs, funding academic software purchases like RazKids, and hosting fun community events like the Fun Run and the Spring Fling. Our fundraising is important to help keep our classrooms up to date with working smart boards and the latest curriculum tools. And the PTA's main purpose centers on ADVOCACY. 

Advocacy is a constitutional right and a proud American tradition. It’s the most important opportunity, after voting, that Americans have to be involved in their government. PTA is one of the nation’s oldest and most successful advocacy organizations. PTA has been an advocate for children since 1897 and has always been at the forefront in supporting laws that benefit children. Are you interested in learning more about advocacy and the PTA? Check out the NCPTA website's advocacy section. And if you are interested in diving in, we are in need of an Advocacy Chair. This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in educational policy and inspiring others to share their voices. Learn more about the Advocacy Chair role here, and check out a recent NC PTA webinar, "Taking the Scary Out of Advocacy" to learn more about how to advocate in government and in schools.

Please contact if you are interested in PTA advocacy. 

Have a great weekend!

Primero, me gustaría dar una gran bienvenida a nuestros nuevos miembros que se unieron después de nuestras noches de currículo la semana pasada. Nos encanta ver crecer y fortalecerse a nuestra comunidad. Ahora que es miembro, es posible que se pregunte, ¿ahora?

(¿Se olvidó de unirse? No es demasiado tarde, ¡corra la voz y únase a la PTA aquí!)

¡La PTA tiene muchas oportunidades para que usted participe! Asegúrese de seguirnos en FacebookInstagram y Twitter, y consulte este boletín semanal para conocer los próximos eventos de voluntariado y oportunidades abiertas con la PTA. Nuestra comunidad de PTA trabaja arduamente para hacer que Apex Elementary sea excelente, brindando apoyo a clubes de estudiantes, financiando compras de software académico como RazKids y organizando eventos comunitarios divertidos como Fun Run y Spring Fling. Nuestra recaudación de fondos es importante para ayudar a mantener nuestras aulas actualizadas con pizarrones inteligentes que funcionan y las últimas herramientas curriculares. Y el propósito principal de la PTA se centra en la DEFENSA.

La defensa es un derecho constitucional y una orgullosa tradición estadounidense. Es la oportunidad más importante, después de votar, que los estadounidenses tienen de participar en su gobierno. La PTA es una de las organizaciones de defensa más antiguas y exitosas del país. La PTA ha sido una defensora de los niños desde 1897 y siempre ha estado a la vanguardia en el apoyo a las leyes que benefician a los niños. ¿Está interesado en aprender más sobre la promoción y la PTA? Consulte la sección de promoción del sitio web de la NCPTA. Y si está interesado en sumergirse, necesitamos un presidente de defensa. Esta es una gran oportunidad para alguien que esté interesado en la política educativa e inspire a otros a compartir sus voces. Obtenga más información sobre el papel del presidente de defensa aquí consulte un seminario web reciente de la PTA de Carolina del Norte, "Sacando el miedo de la defensa" para obtener más información sobre cómo abogar en el gobierno y en las escuelas.
Comuníquese con si está interesado en la defensa de la PTA.
¡Ten un excelente fin de semana!
