Dear Bobcat Families,
On Thursday, November 30th, our team will embark on a science field trip to Marbles Museum in downtown Raleigh. This trip will feature both IMAX and STEM learning labs. Because we already have your student medical/permission forms, we simply need payment for the field trip. More details are below.
Students will need to bring to school:
1. A good hearty breakfast/snack and drink for the morning at 9:00am.
2. A bag lunch and drink for our return to AMS at 1:30.
We will eat our snack in our classrooms before we leave for Marbles. Because lunch will not be until we return at 1:30, it is important that students bring a hearty breakfast/snack to eat before we leave.
Cost: $15.00 for Marbles or $25.00 to cover both Marbles and the Tiger Rescue in the spring.
Make checks payable to Apex Middle School.
You may also pay online on the AMS Website. Click HERE to pay online!

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Bobcats team,
As we complete the first quarter of 6th grade, we have a tradition at Apex Middle School to hold student-led conferences for our families. Student-led conferences help students take responsibility for their academic success, foster goal setting, and promote trust and partnership between the students, parents and teachers. It has been our experience that parents who participate are enthusiastic and positive about this approach. It is an opportunity for support and a celebration of success.
Since this may be a new conference format for some of you, we will give you some background on our goals for this:
The conferences are planned to last approximately 30 minutes. There will be several conferences scheduled at the same time as there will be a couple of groups in each of our classrooms. The teachers will be present for facilitation of the process as necessary. Should you need a private conference with the teachers, we will need to make arrangements for a different time.
Student-led Conferences Date: Tuesday, November 14th
Conference Slots: 30-minute time slots between 4:00-6:30
