Cougars Rock! 
Thanks to our cougars' hard work and generous donors, our Fun Run Donations & After Party Auction & Raffle brought in just over $35,000! That's an Apex Elementary record! 
The money raised by these fundraisers goes directly to the support of school's students and teachers. Thank you for helping to make Apex Elementary the Peak of Good Learning!

As one Apex family, we believe in making sure all our Cougars families are cared for. There are MANY wonderful giving programs in Apex to support our students at the holidays and free up resources for families to focus on basic needs. 


If you are a family in a position to share your resources OR if you are a family in need of support, check out The Christmas Store  or The Hope Christmas Toy Store and also, Western Wake Crisis Ministry. These programs support many AES students and their families.


Additionally, if your family would like to gift a $25 grocery card to Food Lion or Walmart for an AES family, please turn it in to the front office by Friday, December 14 in an envelope labeled Cougars Care.
